Like my fellow food allergy bloggers, I sometimes receive questions from readers or followers that are really difficult to answer. 2 recent questions continue to puzzle me.
1. Allergies to food dyes. Does anyone have experience with allergies to food dyes? If so, did you or your loved one grow out of that food allergy? Lynda Mitchell of KFA reminded me--and it is a very good point--that there are artificial and natural food dyes to consider as well.
2. Food allergies as a factor in visitation schedule in divorce. What to do if one parent has a documented substance abuse problem and has refused to learn about food allergy management and how to avoid reactions? The parent in question temporarily has been granted unsupervised short day visits, is not in treatment for substance abuse, and is seeking overnight visits. Very scary! What resources (in Massachusetts) are available to protect the food allergic child?
