My Side Project – Allergy Translation App

10 years ago I started http://www.allergytranslation.com and couldn’t be more proud on how the site has grown and developed through the years.

It’s amazing how much has changed in 10 years on the Internet and have loved keeping up with it all. This is especially true in the last year by prioritizing in a smartphone app.

Watch the video above to learn more about it, but essentially it’s handy way to communicate your food allergies in foreign languages right on your smartphone.

Kyle Dine at the Allergy + Free From Show London

The kids were a boppin’ and I was a rockin’ at the Allergy + Free From Show in London over the past weekend. I had the privilege of performing throughout the three day expo in the Kid Zone at the Haydn’s Wish exhibit area. If you are in the U.K, I encourage you to check out Haydn’s Wish – it’s a very inspiring charity doing great work.

It was a real treat to have more laid back and informal performances then I’m used to. Performing for 400 children in a gymnasium is pretty structured as you would imagine. I got to sit on a comfy chair and do impromptu concerts whenever we had enough kids around to have some fun!

I was amazed by the sheer size of the trade show. I’m really happy that I went to get a feel for it and will definitely consider setting up a booth next year for www.allergytranslation.com to promote food allergy translation cards, as well as www.allergytravels.com.

Wowza! That’s a big allergy show!

Food Allergies & Fast Food – What I Eat on the Road

I get asked a lot about what I eat while travelling around so much. I started thinking more about it and realized how I really only stick to a handful of foods, yet they seem to be available in every nook of North America.

When I think of fast food chains, I really don’t even know what’s on their menu, except the ONE THING that I order every….single….time. Many might think this as pretty bland, but I really love these options, and I don’t like surprises with food – especially when travelling.


Here are my top 3 fast food meals that I eat on the road with food allergies.

(My allergies: peanut, tree nut, egg, fish, shellfish and mustard)

  1. McDonald’s Southwest Chicken Salad (grilled chicken, balsamic dressing).

New Food Allergy Translation App

I’m so proud to announce the launch of the new Food Allergy Translation App! It’s the newest addition to a growing suite of resources at www.allergytranslation.com.

Allergy Translation Card App

It’s currently available on iOS with an Android version being launched in a matter of weeks.

Allergy Cards for Travel

Like the website, you can create cards in 43 languages, but now they will show nicely on your screen. You can order customized cards with up to 10 allergens (from a database of 200 foods/items), or a specialized card that gives more details about one or two common allergens (e.g. peanut, wheat cards).

Download the Allergy Translation App today and don’t limit your adventure!
