Lots of people have food allergies--and being nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free, or any food-free can make life pretty difficult. Food is woven into the fabric of our society, and constantly having to eat something bland, tasteless, and different than what everyone else is eating is no fun. But we want to present a revolutionary concept: it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are three things you need to know about snacking with food allergies--and they might not be what you think.
We first got our son tested for allergies when he was just 1 years old. He had already had reactions to peanuts twice, but we never thought it would extend from peanuts into other nuts. Oh boy, were we wrong. His first allergy test was through a blood test. It's not as accurate as the skin scratch test they can also do, but due to his age the doctors won't do that one until they are a bit older.
