I am the mother of three beautiful children. My oldest has multiple severe food allergies, my middle child has no food allergies that we know of, and my baby is allergic to dairy. Living with food allergies affects everything we do. Our allergic children are not the only ones living with food allergies. We’re in this as a family.
I’m dedicated to using this blog to share our daily struggles as a family, as well as my own personal struggles with mothering food allergies. It is truly a full time job in itself to keep allergic children safe and included.
Food allergies shape the way we live, the way we work, and the way we play. My husband and I are on a journey to create tools that will make our children’s lives easier. We are beginning with trying to reduce the leg work required for dining out with dietary restrictions. We have built an app for iPhone and iPad called YoDish. With this app, you can review specific dishes at specific locations and share the experience with others who share your dietary profile. It’s not only for those with food allergies, but also vegans, vegetarians, and gluten free patrons. The app is free, so check it out and add your favorite dishes!!!
