Specific Aim 1 To describe food insecurity in families of the pediatric allergy population, specifically comparing the prevalence of food insecurity rates between households of food allergic patients and households of allergic patients without food allergy.
Specific Aim 2 To examine health literacy in parents of patients in the pediatric allergy population, comparing food insecure patients with and without food allergy to food secure patients with food allergy.
Specific Aim 3 To examine quality of life in food allergic patients' households using the food allergy impact scale, comparing food allergic patients' households with food insecurity to food allergic patients' households without food insecurity.

- Presence of food insecurity within an atopic population [ Time Frame: 1.25 years ]The primary outcome variable of interest is the presence of food insecurity (patients with Low Food Security or Very Low Food Security). A chi-square test of independence will be used to test the association between food insecurity and food allergy.
- Health Literacy Rate [ Time Frame: 1.25 years ]A logistic regression analysis will be done to test the effect of food allergy and food insecurity on the health illiteracy rates after adjusting for confounding variables such as demographics. Appropriate contrasts for the interaction effect between food allergy and food insecurity will also be used to compare health literacy rates.
- Quality of life of families with food allergic members [ Time Frame: 1.25 years ]The average quality of life score taken across all six items in the quality of life questionnaire will be the outcome variable of interest. The mean average quality of life score between the food secure households with food allergy and the food insecure households with food allergy will be compared between the two groups using an ANCOVA method.
