Must-see video of kids talking about food allergies

Posted on July 31st, 2009 by Alison Read 2 Comments - Add Your Own »

This is a fabulous video to show your food-allergic child (and it wouldn’t hurt for non-allergic kids and adults to watch). My daughter LOVED seeing other kids just like her and it opened the door for us to talk about the Epi-Pen (not a fun subject!) Thanks to the Food Allergy Initiative for producing the video and for raising money to fund research.

A newer video has also been put out by the same organization with the same cute kids. This one includes parents talking about their kids’ food allergies. Also a good one to see! (It might take a while after you press play, but it will come eventually.)

Want to help fund a cure? You can donate to the Food Allergy Initiative or you can sponsor my family in the Food Allergy Walk in San Francisco to raise money for the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network.

  1. These videos are great. I loved seeing the kids talk about their food allergies and how they feel about them.

    The second video talks a bit more about the life or death issue that food allergies have. And I would have to agree with what the parents say – that most people aren’t aware of the severity of food allergies in some adults and children.

    I am lucky in that my allergies and my son’s allergies are not life threatening. I feel for the parents who have children whose allergies are.

  2. Thanks so much for pointing out these very effective videos!
