I decided to start this blog after my son was diagnosed with food allergies. For the first seven months of his life he suffered with terrible eczema and after a trip to the ER we found out he is allergic to milk, soy, eggs, sesame and peanuts. As a parent of a child with food allergies it is a constant emotional rollercoaster. I have cried at grocery stores, at birthday parties and at night. He has had the Epi injection twice and spent too much time in the ER.

Current allergies: Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree nuts
Outgrew: Sesame, Soy


There are so many awesome resources for parents with allergic kids.  When Aiden was diagnosed with his allergies it hit us like a ton of bricks.  We had no clue what to do, what to feed him, who to talk to and how it will affect him and everyone around him.   I’m still learning every single day and I’m glad that it happened in 2010 and not in the 80’s or 90’s where resources were limited and people knew almost nothing about the subject. 

Below I have a list of all of my important resources that have helped me get through these learning times.

Everyone should first start here. Click on the allergen and learn about it.
