If you’re anything like me, you want to do what you can to keep your food-allergic child healthy and safe. Yet you don’t want your efforts to result in an anxious kid with a food phobia.
So what to do? Well, you can start by learning from seasoned allergy parents in your community. Join local support groups (both in person and online), browse recommended websites, read suggested articles and books, ask lots of questions, cry on their shoulders (if need be), and… ask more questions.
If you’ve got that list of questions ready, good news! Local allergy mom and founder of allergy support group Allison Venditti has partnered with Registered Dietitian, Pediatric & Family Nutritionist and founder of Vibrant Nutrition Nishta Saxen to host a free event for concerned parents like you. Not only are you invited to this event, but you’re asked to come with a whole bunch of questions. That’s right, here’s your chance to get all those answers you’re looking for!
Oh, and guess what… Little ol’ me has been asked to speak ever so briefly about the AllergyBites project. (And to tell you a little bit more about the extra yummy giveaway I’m holding this month.) So come and see me try and get over my own phobia. (Yup, I’m terrified of public speaking.)
