"Food allergies can complicate holidays," Dr Elliott says. "You 're not really in charge of the meal, whether you're eating out or in someone else's room."


You're often introduced to dishes you don't usually have. Bread pudding? Buffet to Christmas? You may wonder: What's inside that stuff? Even if a product does not contain ingredients you 're allergic to, there is always the risk of cross-contamination. Although many restaurants have procedures to separate cooking utensils and cooking spaces so as to prevent cross-contact, "home cooks tend not to think about whether a cutting board or cookie cutter created a food allergen until it was reused," advises Dr. Elliott.
