Food Allergy Center at Hasbro Children's Hospital

Lifespan helps families protect their children from food allergies.

Clinical Trials for Allergies

Research is currently being conducted to learn more about allergies and how they affect our patients. 

Search allergy clinical trials

Approximately 3 million children in the United States have food allergies and reports suggest an increasing prevalence, especially among infants and young children. Because food allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe, and the amount of food needed to cause a reaction varies, food allergies can impact children and their families in many ways.

Our Approach

Caregivers at the Hasbro Children's Hospital Food Allergy Center have a passion for healing children. Our approach to pediatric care ensures that members of our expert medical team work together to provide comprehensive, coordinated care for each child.

Services and Treatment

We treat children affected by a wide range of mild to severe food allergies, including those with a history of anaphylactic reactions and complex cases of eosinophilic GI disease.

We manage many conditions, including:

  • Food-induced anaphylaxis
  • Food-induced atopic dermatitis
  • Food protein enterocolitis syndrome
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis
  • Food allergies coexisting with other GI diseases

Our specialists work with each family to coordinate an individualized plan of treatment and will keep the family informed throughout the process. Through leading-edge methods and treatments, we provide symptomatic relief and increased quality of life for both the child and family.

Our diverse services include:

  • Patient and family education
