Food Allergy Substitutions

Having a food allergy means remaining vigilant about what you eat at all times. In this video, Registered Dietitian Sharon Richter discusses some of the common food allergies such as dairy, peanuts, shellfish and gluten. Richter explains the importance of finding a substitution for those foods in order to still get the nutrients you need. For example, replacing milk with soymilk will give you calcium and even improve your protein intake. If you’re unsure if a food will trigger your allergies, always check the label!
