I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.
If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.
There is a new website just launched that gives those of us with food allergies valuable information when dining out. AllergyEats allows you to search by zip code for restaurants in your area. A comprehensive list is then compiled of restaurants including links to allergy information, if available. I was surprised that many of the chain restaurants have information online. As for local restaurants, who may not have links to allergy information, AllergyEats gives readers the option to post comments and rate restaurants.
What a great tool for those of us, who just rather stay home than even try to deal with allergies in public restaurants. Since our little one is only 2 1/2, we can get away with bringing her own snack when we do venture out. But soon, I hope to you this resource to help her "eat out," too. This will be especially helpful when traveling.
