Robyn O'Brien

AllergyKids Foundation


Robyn O’Brien is a former financial analyst who triggered an allergic reaction in the food industry when she asked the question: “Are we allergic to food or what’s been done to it?” She has helped lead a food awakening among consumers, corporations and politicians. Food companies responding to Robyn’s work include Kraft, Coca Cola, Burger, Chipotle, Nestle, Target and others. She sheds light on how the changing landscape of food and health are impacting the food industry and our economy.

Robyn has been called "food's Erin Brockovich" by the New York Times, "an inspiring woman to follow on Twitter" by Forbes Woman and "visionary" by the Discover Channel. Ted Turner, Jamie Oliver, and food industry leaders have recognized her work.

She is the founder of the AllergyKids Foundation whose mission is to make clean and safe food affordable to all Americans, the author of "The Unhealthy Truth" and a mother of four. You can learn more and watch one of her TEDx talks at
