Allergies

Today, one in thirteen children have a food allergy with varying degrees of sensitivity. The most common food allergies – peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish – are never used in Nurture Life meals. All meals are prepared in our state-of-the-art kitchen, which means there’s no risk of cross-contamination for these ingredients.

Allergens

While major allergens such as peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish are never used in our facility, meals are prepared in our kitchen containing coconut, dairy, eggs, fish, soy and wheat. Though best practices are used when preparing all meals, inadvertent cross-contamination of coconut, dairy, eggs, fish, soy and wheat may occur. On our subscription site, all meals are indicated when vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, egg free and soy free.

Our Labels

All Nurture Life meals include complete ingredient lists. If you’re concerned about other allergens, a list of ingredients is available on every meal label and on the meal details pages on our subscription site.

Introducing Allergens

It is important to talk to your pediatrician about introducing allergens to your child. If your infant demonstrates signs of a food allergy, or has a sibling with a food allergy, your pediatrician may refer you to a pediatric allergist or provide you with individualized guidance.

 

If you think your child is having an allergic reaction to food, call 911 immediately.
