Living with Food Allergies Carnival - December 27, 2012

Welcome to the December 27, 2012 edition of living with food allergies carnival. This is our last edition for 2012! Can you believe it?!

We are looking for hosts for 2013. If you are interested in hosting the Living with Food Allergies Blog Carnival on your blog one month, please send an email to me at jennifer{AT}foodallergybuzz{DOT}com. It is fairly easy to do and is basically a copy and paste operation. Anyone who is a food allergy advocate and has a blog is welcome to host!

We welcome food allergy related blog posts from all bloggers. The current editing policy is: if a post relates to food allergies and is not anti-food allergy advocacy/awareness, the post should be included. Please feel free to send in your recipes, tips, news and personal stories using our carnival submission form.

That concludes the 2012 year-end edition. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2013!

Thank you for sharing my post. I do agree with your assessment and appreciate the caveat. I only know my personal experience and figure that it's worth a try for someone at their wit's end.

Have a great day!
