A Chocolate-Free Halloween?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Oct, Fri 25, 2013

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.

Tips For Allergy-Friendly Air Travel

Posted by Tara Cohen on May, Wed 15, 2013

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.

Posted by Emily Battmer on Aug, Thu 18, 2011

Filled with the promise of new friends, new growth, and new learning experiences, a brand new school year offers a fresh start for students. The slate has been wiped clean and nothing but new opportunities lie ahead.  If your child has food allergies, however, this can be a stressful situation; while new teachers and classmates are great, they might not know the first thing about food allergies – and they certainly don’t know your child’s specific needs.
