The key to eating out safely with food allergies is to be prepared. Calling in advance, bringing a chef card (like the one below) and choosing a food allergy aware restaurant are a few of the things you can do to make your experience safer and more enjoyable. And of course, bringing along your emergency medications will give you peace of mind.
