With an eye on the food allergy community as a unique group of consumers since 2008, we're on a quest to find and share ways to continue enjoying the good things in life.

Websites to Visit

I have a couple links to share with you today. If you haven't already visited these sites, please do!

www.ellfoundation.org. Eat, Learn, Live
There is a lot going on at ELL--a network of consultants, a shop with useful food allergy products such as a guide to celebrations with food allergies  and reusable shopping cart covers, advocacy. The thing that jumps out at me is the database of mislabeled foods. That's going to be a pretty big list fast! Check it out.

The Food Allergy Assistant has a great deal of information to help you and your loved ones get up to speed on life with food allergies. One of her primary focuses (foci is such a strange sounding word!) is to help educate friends and family of food allergic individuals. That is a huge need--kudos to her for that!  It can be extremely difficult to get relatives to understand the nuances of food allergies and avoiding reactions and cross-contamination. She shares her thoughts on life with food allergies, safe foods, and also some humor on her blog--I especially enjoyed the post, My Food Allergy Christmas List.

Aw shucks. Thank you for your kind words. I do believe we've got a bunch of confused grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, friends, etc. out there who don't know what we want in relation to our kids' food allergies. Meanwhile, we have a bunch of frustrated parents who feel like they should be able to count on others to keep their child safe. We'll keep talking...
