AllergyEats was recently selected as a winner in the 14th-annual Web Health Awards(SM) program. The AllergyEats smartphone app, which allows users to find and rate restaurants based on how well they accommodate food-allergic diners, received a Silver Award for Best Mobile Directory/Ratings/Guide.

“We are honored to be selected as a winner in the 2012 Web Health Awards competition,” says Paul Antico, founder and CEO of AllergyEats, father of three food-allergic children and passionate food-allergy advocate. “Our winning entry was chosen from nearly 600 contenders, judged by a panel of distinguished experts in digital health media.”

This is the third award that the AllergyEats app has won in the past six months. In 2012, it won Best Allergy App in’s prestigious 2012 Readers Choice Awards, and more recently, the AllergyEats app was named one of the 10 Best Allergy Health Apps of 2012 by Healthline.

“Our mobile app offers all of the same benefits as the original AllergyEats website, with the added convenience of portability,” Antico says. “Users have on-demand access to this wealth of information right at their fingertips.”

The site, app and related social-media sites help families with food allergies reduce the guesswork and anxiety surrounding dining out with food allergies. AllergyEats lists more than 575,000 restaurants nationwide, which food-allergic diners can rate. The site also offers information on restaurants’ menus (including gluten-free menus), allergen lists, nutrition information, certifications, web links, directions and more. This peer-based ratings and review site lets people see, at a glance, which restaurants have been more willing and better able to accommodate special dietary requirements, allowing food-allergic diners to make more informed choices about where to dine.

AllergyEats has been endorsed by highly-respected food, health and allergy organizations and individuals, including the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Gluten Intolerance Group, Massachusetts Restaurant Association, Chef Ming Tsai, Chef Joel Schaefer and more. For more information, visit
