    “It really surprised me how many were talking about how our kids are affected by whats in our food and environment!!!”

    My daughter was diagnosed with a gluten and severe casein allergy this summer and I have been reading as much as I can get my hands on!! One of my favorites is your book!!!! What an inspiration the AllergyKids Foundation is to us moms!!! I myself have 4 kids and work full time…as we all work on being superwoman! :-)

    I teach 1st gr special needs and it is amazing how much diet comes up recently in relation to my kids. One child last year was my first experience in seeing first hand the diffence that diet can make and now, I see that he is not alone! When I had a training with several other teachers yesterday, it really surprised me how many were talking about how our kids are affected by whats in our food and environment!!! Seeing this interest, I was hoping you may have some advise. What can we do to get our parents thinking about this? Who should we start with in the school system? Which legislators should we go to that would have the most impact?

    Thank you for fighting for our kids!!!! you ROCK!!!
