The Beginners Guide to Having a Food Allergy

Your child has a food allergy.

Your world just turned upside-down, and you may be feeling like you have no idea where to start.

I’ve been there too.

I remember the day the allergist confirmed my son had a food allergy.

I was so confused as to what a food allergy would even mean to my child. To me. To our family. What in the world is a food allergy and why am I now carrying this thing called an EPI pen?

I was so confused that I didn’t even notice the car backing out of a parking spot behind me.

That’s right. Just diagnosed food allergy, EpiPens, and now a fender bender. I was literally walking in circles trying to understand my next step.

And the good news?

I found the next step. And the next one after that, and I want to share these steps with you to help you feel less confused and less overwhelmed.

It may never become easy, but having a child with a food allergy will definitely become more manageable over time.

This guide will help you find your next step, and the one after that, upon learning your child has a food allergy.

Check out our Peanut-free, Preschool Halloween Party

It can be confusing to know how to prepare for a nut-free class party. Inside are allergy friendly snacks, along with non food treat ideas.

Ah, Halloween.

Your Reeces Peanut Butter Cups and Snicker Bars used to tempt me every time. Like every. single. time. 

But not anymore.

The site of a peanut makes my heart skip a beat and the thought of hidden peanut content sends me on high alert due to our preschooler's peanut allergy.

Did you know that 1 in every 13 children have a food allergy and a grain of sand amount of peanut could put some children into anaphylactic shock?

The statistics are frightening.

Cheers to a reinvented, stylish, peanut-free, Preschool party that will entertain your preschooler so well that they will go home and nap. - I made that last part up. But we can all hope...
