Halloween PSA

I promise next post will have pictures! :)

Since it is getting close to Halloween, I thought I would share an article that was recently published in Child magazine. It is a wonderfully informative article about the "new" food allergy status of children in our nation. Our family has more than one multi-food allergic residents in it. As the little one goes off to school, we are facing new challenges and learning a few new tricks (some the hard way unfortunately). If you do not have any experience with a food allergy, or have preconceived notions about whether or not food allergies actually exist(or if they are really dangerous) I urge you to read this article. Heck, I urge you to read it anyway, no matter what you think!
