    An “A-ha!” Moment

    I own a kid’s cooking business called Super Kids Cooking (no website right now). I often get requests from parents who have kids with allergies but want to take a cooking class. I accomodate all sorts of allergies (eggs, dairy, nuts, sesame, and even cinnamon) so those kids can experience cooking up something for themselves.

    I had an “a-ha” moment when a customer/mom said to me “It’s important to offer kids with allergies the chance to cook and touch the food themselves because some of them have tactile issues around food. They are afraid to touch it for fear of re! acting to an allergen.” That’s when I realized I needed to have classes that catered to allergies. Thank you for your time and thank you for the awareness!
