If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me how to "do the Teal Pumpkin Project", I would be rich! I am excited to share with you how easy and affordable it is to include ALL children on Halloween.
Food Allergy Awareness Week's 20th Anniversary is next week, May 14-20, 2017. This is the perfect time to share food allergy facts with friends and family on social media, print handouts for teachers and administrators at school, and raise awareness at your community center or place of worship. It is also a great time to celebrate YOU - the young adult managing food allergies at college, the parent or teacher of an allergic child, the grandparent caring for an allergic grandbaby. Food allergies may be challenging at times, but you are doing a great job managing them and living a full life! Go ahead, take a moment to pat yourself on the back!
Invitations to Egg Hunts and Spring Celebrations are popping up like tulips. Many food allergy families are on the look out for safe ways to get in on the fun. The great news is there are many safe options! I am sharing my favorite Easter ideas and resources so your family can enjoy an egg-cellent (yep, I said it) holiday season.

Being a grandma is amazing! Being Grandma to an allergy kid is…still amazing! When my first granddaughter, Charley, was born, I told my daughter that I wanted to be involved in her life as much as I could. I do not care if she is happy or sad, poopy or dry, healthy or sick. I just want to be part of her life and watch as she grows up.
