My kids are allergic to some kinds of grass. If they sit on the lawn in our yard with shorts on, they get red marks on their skin and itchiness. So they don’t sit on the lawn in shorts. Easy.
But my kids don’t have food allergies. The kind that so many families have to deal with that can lead to life threatening emergencies like what happened to Katie, who’s story I posted earlier this month.
From what I read on all the Facebook walls and blogs that I
stalk love to read, I can see that food allergies are a seriously important topic and everyone is looking for support and helpful resources.
I’m thrilled that my EasyLunchboxes make it easier for families to pack allergy-safe meals, but what about the actual food? It can be an overwhelming responsibility to send a child with severe food allergies off to school or what should be a simple outing with friends. So I’ve put together some background information and a resource list that I hope will be of help:

But wait! There’s more! Check out the resources my friend
