Primary: This site is first and foremost for other allergy moms. I hope it provides positive information that's not scary. Ideally, it'll give some ideas on how to cook, feed, plan, and travel with a food allergy child. I hope that you, too, will share your journey with me on this topic. Next, I hope this site gives insight to friends and family of food allergy kids. There's a saying from my alma-mater that fits almost all walks of life: "From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. From the inside looking out, you can't explain it." Being the mom of any "sick" kid is hard, including a kid with allergies. Thankfully, my close friends understand my challenges and give me support when I need it most. Hopefully, you're able to do the same and maybe this site can give you insight on how to help your friends or family.
Secondary: I want this to be an outlet for me to share random information that I acquire as I go through my days! I hope it gives me a sense of accomplishment by forcing me to organize my thoughts and messages...and save my friends from continuous verbal diarrhea about the state of food in our country!
Layout: I will attempt to organize this website so that it has a focus:
Monday: Make it at home
Tuesday: Take time to care (community, family, friends)
Wednesday: What's up with allergies?
Thursday: Thoughtful spending
Friday: Food plan for next week
Saturday: Slowly getting fit
