18 million Americans have some sort of food allergy according to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education). Over 6 million kids have been diagnosed with food allergies. That's one out of every 13 children.  When you consider Walt Disney World welcomes over 130 million visitors every year, there will be visitors who must avoid certain foods.

Allergy triggers for younger kids are usually milk, eggs and soy. Often kids will out grow these sensitivities.  Tree nuts, peanuts, milk, fish and shellfish are the most common allergies seen in older children and adults. People who suffer from allergies need to avoid trigger foods.  It can be a challenge when dining out in restaurants. How do you know if those french fries were cooked in peanut oil?
