Food allergy food finder

If you or someone in your family has allergies or intolerances to certain foods The Specialty Food Shop at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto has something for you. The Food Finder Wheel! Being diagnosed with a food allergy can be confusing and scary. You may get lost in a sea of new rules about what you can and canít eat.

The Specialty Food Shop has updated their popular and handy information wheel to help customers of all ages determine which products they carry are free of common food allergens. People with life-threatening food allergies need to be careful when food shopping. They must learn to read food labels and recognize sources of their offending allergen. The Food Finder helps take the guesswork out of food shopping by pointing people in the right direction.

Using the wheel is easy. You simply spin the wheel to a product to determine if it is dairy, lactose, egg, nut, soy, corn, wheat and/or gluten free. The easy-to-use tool is divided into categories and includes allergen-free breads, cereals, soups, pasta, sauces, cookies, crackers, snacks, dietary supplements and more. And it makes a great stocking stuffer!
