A Chocolate-Free Halloween?

Those of you who follow the Lauren's Hope blog may recall me writing earlier this fall about my six-year-old daughter, Julia, and how she was recently diagnosed with a chocoalate allergy (specifically, a cacao allergy). When I tell people Julia is allergic to chocolate, the most common response from adults is something completely reasonable and calm like this: "Chocolate? She's allergic to chocolate?! I would DIE." So, I've learned to phrase it differently, especially when Julia is within earshot. I say, "Julia is allergic to chocolate, and boy, removing it from her diet has made her feel so much better! And she's trying lots of great new flavors now!" or something similar, and that's helping my daughter stay positive about it while giving adults the cue that I'd appreciate them doing so too. 


Onespot Allergy's Top Ten Allergy Safety Tips for Halloween

Allergy safety is always a serious issue. At Halloween, however, it's particularly important to keep allergy safety in mind, as it is very easy for kids with food allergies to be accidentally exposed to unsafe foods. Today, we bring you some Halloween safety tips from our friends at Onespot Allergy in the hopes that your little ones experience only the fun, safe kind of "scares" this Halloween. And remember, even (and especially) in a Halloween costume, it's imperative that kids with food allergies always carry their medications and wear their medical alert jewelry


Tips For Allergy-Friendly Air Travel

  
  
  
There are bills being proposed to help ban nuts on airplanes.

Summer is (finally!!) almost upon us after a particularly long winter, and for many, that means it’s time to start traveling. For people with tree nut and peanut allergies, this can be particularly challenging because airlines still serve peanuts and some meals that may contain nuts. Although allergy advocates are working to change the airline status quo, in the interim, the onus for safety falls squarely on the traveler.


What Is Celiac Disease

What is Celiac Disease?

One in every 133 Americans has Celiac Disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack itself in response to gluten exposure. This means people with Celiac cannot eat anything containing gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Some people with Celiac Disease also find that they cannot tolerate trans-dermal (through the skin) exposure to gluten, either, which means they must be vigilant about checking the ingredients in every soap, shampoo, lotion, and cosmetic before using it, as many of these common toiletries use gluten as a binding agent.


Peanut Allergy Medical ID Bracelets

Why is it necessary for some people to wear peanut allergy bracelets?  Highly sensitive people can have a serious food reation if only 1/44,000 part of a peanut kernel is ingested!  It is easy for people to avoid eating peanut butter or a handful of peanuts if they are allergic to peanuts.  It is not always so easy to avoid the hidden, trace ingredients of food in restaurants or unsuspecting food items.
