Please read, before reading

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.

Product Review - Annie's Homegrown Gluten-Free Bunnies

I made a quick run to a locally owned grocery store yesterday.  They carry a lot of items I can't find anywhere else (not just allergy-free, either).  I was scanning the shelf in the organic area and came across Annie's Homegrown Gluten-Free Bunnies hidden toward the bottom.  I was ecstatic when I read "Made in a peanut-free, tree-nut free facility."  Our daughter is elated.  I can't even count how many times she has asked for bunny or goldfish crackers.  Her question usually is "Can we find some without food allergies?"  So when I read the label to her she clapped excitedly.  Sometimes it's just fun to have fun treats (like everyone else).

Valentine's Day and Food Allergies

It's now been a couple years since our 3-year-old has been celebrating holidays with her food allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, milk and eggs.  Quite honestly, I don't really think too hard about what to do anymore.  I treat Valentine's Day very similar to Halloween,  Just insert hearts and cupids instead of pumpkins and ghosts. 

Here are a few other ideas for treats for Valentine's Day:
Remember it's only a big deal if you make it a big deal.  Also, if your children are young just baking something together is more important than the end result.  Valentine's Day is a holiday to show love and friendship -- not just to eat a lot of treats.
