"Food allergies can make holidays difficult," says Dr Elliott. "Sometimes you're not in control of the meal, because you're eating out or in somebody else's house."

Additionally, you 're introduced to dishes that you normally don't have. Pudding Bread? Christmas Buffet? You may wonder: What's in that stuff? Even if a food does not contain ingredients to which you are allergic, the possibility of cross-contamination still exists. While several restaurants have protocols to distinguish cooking utensils and cooking spaces to avoid cross-contact, "home cooks prefer not to worry about whether a cutting board or cookie cutter produced a food allergen before re-using it," warns Dr. Elliott.
