SoCal Food Allergy is here to support you. Our staff includes a Child Life Development Specialist and our center features a Child Life Room, designed to help address the emotional and developmental needs of our patients and their families as they move through the Tolerance Induction Program.
We also offer referrals to trusted child life coaches and psychologists that can help patients overcome their fears.
For children who are picky eaters, it may take some creativity in the kitchen to prepare doses in the most palatable form for your child. We recommend that parents make this a fun and interactive process for their child. You can mask the allergens in yummy treats your child will enjoy such as smoothies, baked goods, chocolate and even applesauce! The new SoCal Food Allergy Studio Kitchen serves as a resource where where our TIP families can find quick, easy and tasty recipes for their dosing protocols.
