Introducing EatAware: Dine out with food allergies in Ontario.

Hello! My name is Kaitlin and I am the Founder of EatAware - your new guide to dining out in Ontario, Canada with food allergies!

My mission for EatAware is to provide more accessible and accurate information on restaurants across Ontario to the food allergy community.

Growing up, I had a peanut and tree nut allergy. I never expected at 22 years old to have my first anaphylactic reaction to soy while away at university.

Dining out with three severe food allergies was near impossible in the beginning. I thought I’d be stuck to one restaurant for the rest of my life.

Until I made the decision to continue to dine out and try new restaurants. With a lot of careful planning and preparation in partnership with restaurant staff, I have had 99% wonderful experiences in the last 2 years.

I have decided to share the information I’ve collected with you in two ways; (1) through blogging on this site, at, and (2) through an app I am developing, also called EatAware, where you can easily find location-based restaurant information for food allergies (coming in 2018).
