Parents: Join This Study and Have Your Experience Further Understanding of Food Allergies


Free to Feed is an organization that helps parents navigate food reactivity with a focus on early feeding. They bring evidence-based research to bear on a field that has traditionally been driven by anecdotal and unsubstantiated advice.

Led by Dr Trillitye Paullin, PhD, Free to Feed is conducting a study to better understand the challenges and experiences of parents with food-reactive children, including those with food allergy, food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) and food protein-induced allergic proctocolitis (FPAIP).

Parents/legal guardians of individuals who had a history of food reactivity or a suspected food allergy or intolerance at 5-years-old or younger — regardless of how old they are now — are urged to participate.

Despite the high prevalence of food allergies and other adverse food reactions, there is a significant gap between the number of parental-reported cases and the number of diagnoses made by healthcare providers. By participating in this survey, your experience will help to fill that gap.

Here is Dr Trill explaining the need for you to participate:
