What is FPIES to ME?
You have heard about FPIES from your parents and doctors, but what does it mean to be a kid experiencing FPIES?
Ways to Cope: For Kids, By Kids
Finding ways to cope and ways to lower your stress related to FPIES can be rough at different times. Kids might need different outlets for coping than adults! We have spoken to other kids dealing with chronic illness or FPIES to bring you a list of resources that can help!
