Pediatric Food AllergyAn allergic reaction to a food occurs when the immune system overreacts to the food. Food allergy symptoms can be frightening for you and your child. It’s also frustrating when allergies prevent your child from taking part in normal activities with family and friends. 

The Pediatric Food Allergy Diagnosis and Management Program at National Jewish Health for Kids in Denver, Colorado, brings together a team of nationally recognized allergists, nurses, dietitians, therapists and more. As the leading respiratory hospital in the nation, we have a comprehensive approach designed to provide accurate diagnosis and individual treatment for your child’s needs.

Our doctors are researchers, too, so your child will have access to the latest pediatric food allergy clinical trials and most effective treatments.

At National Jewish Health for Kids you’ll find:

 
  • Advanced food allergy testing
  • 50 years of food challenge experience
  • Nutrition counseling and education
  • Evaluation for other allergic conditions
  • Continued follow-up to treat your child’s changing needs.


You will leave well educated about food allergies and with resources that will help you and your child throughout life. 

National Jewish Health has been named a “FARE Clinical Network Center of Excellence” by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) – one of only 22 in the nation.
