Welcome! I am so glad you’re here.
I’m Kimberly, a mom to two kiddos, one of which has severe, multiple life-threatening food allergies and both of which have asthma. After years of being largely dissatisfied with lack of credible online and local support systems, I established The Food Allergy Mom blog in 2010 to offer parents and caregivers of children with food allergies and asthma a POSITIVE support network.
Are you struggling with a food allergy and/or asthma diagnosis for you or a loved one?
Take a deep breath, grab a cup of coffee, and pull up a chair. I’m incredibly honored to share this journey with you, my friend!
Kimberly is the author of The Food Allergy Mom blog and a freelance writer.

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.
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!
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.
Love your words of praise and encouragement, Vicki! Thanks for passing along this Bible verse…it’s perfect!
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.
Very informative blog!
As a chef I believe that the chemicals and food additives we have in modern daily lives is making a growing number of the population allergic to a growing number of foods. I think a lot more research needs to be done on this subject. I believe we al need to eat as “clean” food as possible. By that I mean without pesticide residue, free from genetic modification and to avoid tinned and frozen food that have lots of E numbers in them.
