About The Food Allergy Mom

The Food Allergy Mom was “born” when my son was diagnosed with multiple severe, life-threatening food allergies in 2004.  The blog was established to offer parents and caregivers of children with food allergies a positive support network.

I enjoy sharing my food allergy journey with others as a blogger and freelance writer.

  1. Hi there, Kimberly,
    Hope all is well with you! Say, just wanted you to know we just created some handy stickers for parents to use on SunButter sandwiches (or a serving to use as dip) that go back to school. Feel free to use and share. It’s here: http://bit.ly/pYVnZv
    Thanks for all your continued inspiration! (I went this route rather than emailing you since my gmail account has been finicky lately)

    PS/ BTW, GREAT article in the FAAN newsletter. I’m going to post it on Facebook and Twitter if that’s okay. Thanks for emailing us the link.

  2. Hi, Elizabeth! Thanks so much for providing this link for us moms. You guys really know how we think! It would be fine to post on FB and Twitter…FAAN just asked that I include a note that says “reprinted with permission from FAAN.” Hope you are doing well!

  3. When I read your post, I felt your pain deeply. My son has been anaphylactic to milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts since he was an infant. There were many scares. I remember one day — he was about four — when we walked past the pizza counter in the supermarket and he had an asthma attack.

    This year we discovered that he has grown out of his egg allergy. We started testing with a baked egg challenge. In the past month, he has eaten his first scrambled eggs, french toast and deviled egg. He is in love with eggs!

    In the context of this, I have been contemplating Psalms 40:1 – 3:

    “I waited patiently for the LORD;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.
    2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
    out of the mud and mire;
    he set my feet on a rock
    and gave me a firm place to stand.
    3 He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.”

    I cannot even describe the joy that we have felt in having our years of prayers answered with a yes! Our family has experienced first hand “A new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise”. Keep praying for your child’s recovery. Never give up. When God heals him, your joy will be almost uncontainable.

  4. Congrats on your top 25 Food Allergy Mom Blog nomination! I’m listed as well (my son has several food allergies) and it’s given me an idea. I’m starting a blog hop for anyone dealing with allergies, eczema, or asthma – adults or parents helping their children. If you’re interested in joining, please visit my page. http://itchylittleworld.wordpress.com/blog-hop/

    Hopefully we can create a circle of blogs to support each other in battling these conditions.
    Jennifer
