Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a web-based nutrition education program, entitled Allergy-Free Kidz, for parents of children ages 1 to 10 years with food allergies. The goals of this project were to increase parents' knowledge of food allergies and to provide resources and sample meal plans to help aid parents in providing nutritious non-allergenic foods to their children.

The nutrition education program consists of four modules: general food allergy information, sample meal plans, food label reading, and information about safely eating at home and at restaurants. The nutrition education and meal planning components were developed using topics and information from research studies. An expert-review panel reviewed the content of the web-based program and supporting user evaluation form and provided feedback. The final web-based program was not pilot tested. A user evaluation form was created to assess the success of the program upon launch of the website.
