Who can participate? To be eligible to participate in this research study, your child must be between the ages of 0-17 years old, currently have an IgE-mediated food allergy, and you and your child must live in the same household.

What do I have to do if I’m in the study? If you decide to be part of this research study, you will be asked to complete an online survey. It will take about 20 minutes to complete the survey.

What are the benefits of the study? There is no financial cost or benefit of participating. Benefits to society include helping us learn more about how school/daycare food allergy policies impact families so that healthcare teams and communities can develop better policies and provide better support.
