Study shows that 1 in 13 US children have food allergy

This study was interesting to me because I feel that the public is now taking notice on how prevalent food allergies are in our society.  The people who are affected by food allergies already knew of its seriousness, now it looks like society is catching up.  The alarming factor in this study is that it looks as if it's getting worse in terms of more and more children being affected each year.  The group who formed this study is now in talks with the CDC in working on national guidelines on how to manage food allergies in schools!   It's hope for us parents who deal with the struggle of how to keep our children safe while in school!

  1. I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com
