    “After 5 years of looking for a great resource I finally found it!”

    Thank you for founding “Allergy Kids”. I have 2 children with food allergies. My son is allergic to Peanuts, Walnuts, Eggs & also has asthma and my daughter is allergic to eggs. My husband and I found out that our Son had food allergies when he was a year and half old and our daughter at 2 years old. After 5 years of looking for a great resource I finally found it!

    The 4 questions I have been asked the most about in the past 5 years with having kids with food allergies:
    * How did you find out they had allergies? And how old were they?
    * What do you feed your kids?
    * Do you think they will every grow out of it?
    * Their are so many kids these days that have allergies, why do you think their is an increase?

    After answering their questions it is amazing to watch and hear their responses. It is hard for families/parents to comprehend since they do not have to think about it on a daily basis. It is also amazing to me that I have a conversation about Food Allergies/Asthma at least everyother week with families that I encounter through work, my childrens schools or just being out and about.

    Thank you again and I am definitly interested in helping to prorotect our children and families with healthy food choices!
