Ask the expert: Nutrition and food allergies – Nourishing children who have food allergy

Linda Kirste, RD

Linda Kirste is a Registered Dietitian. She works at HealthLinkBC where she operates the Allergy Nutrition Service ― a tele-practice-based service that provides nutrition education, as well as counselling and follow-up care for residents of British Columbia with food allergies.

Last month, we hosted a webinar with Linda where she discussed how children with food allergy can get the nutrients they need to grow and thrive.

Linda provided some great tips on alternate food sources that contain key nutrients, menu and recipe strategies, as well as ways to support healthy eating behaviours.
