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.
