Halloween Safety for Kids With Special Circumstances

Posted by Tara Cohen on Oct, Mon 20, 2014

Last Halloween was my daughter’s first big holiday since being diagnosed with a chocolate allergy. I was more than a little nervous about her school parties, expecting a call from the nurse at any moment. Thankfully, she navigated the events (with the help of her terrific teacher) without incident, and our trick-or-treating went off without a hitch as well.

Much of this is due to the fact that Julia, then 6, was already well aware of her allergy and comfortable self-advocating. She always asks whether foods have chocolate in them and takes the extra step to explain that it’s an important question, as she is allergic. Of course, that’s all well and good when a child self-advocates this way. But many children do not or cannot, which can make Halloween more than a little intimidating for their parents.

Eating Better In 2014

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jan, Fri 10, 2014

If you're like the majority of Americans, you've likely made (and maybe even broken) some New Year's Resolutions & Goals for 2014. Eating better is one of the most common resolutions people make. But there's just so much information and so many options out there that choosing a "diet" or deciding what way of eating will not only be better for you but also feasible for you to stick with can be overwhelming. We're not nutritionists here at Lauren's Hope medical ID bracelets, but we've done some leg work to help you get started figuring out your options. Just because it's January 10th doesn't make it too late to set some better eating goals for the new year!

Resolve To Be Safer in 2014

Posted by Tara Cohen on Dec, Mon 02, 2013

I woke up yesterday to my six-year-old saying, "Mommy!! It's December!! Yesterday, it was November, but now it's December!" Kids seem infinitely excited about the passing of seasons. Adults, though, we seem consistently surprised. How often do you hear some version of, "Can you believe it's December already?! Where did the year go?" Time just flies by, each year somehow faster than the last. So, knowing this, I'm thinking even though it's the first week of December, it's time to talk about New Year's Resolutions!
