My ‘a-ha’ moment about food allergies

Posted By Alison On Mar 15, 2011 @ In Emotions,Food Allergies | 1 Comment

The Attune Foods theme this month, “Your a-ha moment,” inspired me to write about when I realized my daughter’s food allergies were real and how I became an allergy mom.

I didn’t know how serious food allergies could be until my daughter’s lips swelled after contact with someone who had been eating cashews. She was two and a half at the time and I didn’t know anyone with food allergies. Looking back, I feel lucky that the worst didn’t happen since we were in Mexico without proper medication. It was after that incident that I began to take food allergies seriously. It was an ‘a-ha’ moment: food allergies are real. And scary.
