Back to school PSA from the mom of a nut allergy kid! I get lots of questions about this so here you go! There are LOTS of super good peanut butter alternatives for school lunches now and I promise - they taste great. -
TRY: Sunbutter (Target/Walmart/HyVee), Wow Butter (Target), Trader Joe’s Sunflower Seed Butter (tastes just like Sun Butter but less expensive), Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butter (Target).
-
NOT SAFE: Nutella, peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, granola bars with nuts.
-
If you make a sandwich for your kids using Sunbutter or Wow Butter without telling them it’s different, they most likely won’t even notice. Seriously. (Lotus used to eat peanut butter daily ... when we switched to Sunbutter, I made her a sandwich with it and she loved it and had no idea it wasn’t peanut butter. And she’s a super picky eater. Now our whole family eats Sunbutter almost every day. It’s delicious and we barely miss the peanut butter.) I know it’s inconvenient and I realize I’m probably being annoying. But making this small change in your packed lunches could make a huge difference to a child in your kid’s school who has a life-threatening nut allergy.
An anaphylactic reaction for kids who are allergic to nuts can cause them to stop breathing, and it happens FAST. It’s an awful reality we have to think about each day when we send Bowie to school.
Packing Sunbutter sandwiches in your kids’ lunchboxes and sticking to the school treat/snack policy really helps ease our minds. ❤️ #nutallergy #allergymom

A very brief moment of normality today when nobody was crying and the calpol hadn’t worn off 😂 #goodbyetonsils #feedingtheducksglutenfreebread #allergymom #iverunoutofnormalbread #arecoeliacducksathing #glutenfree #itwasalldownhillfromhere

This one makes me laugh. I know I’ll miss the moments from their childhood when they are older and no longer need me, but don’t point that out when they are having a freak out or misbehaving. I’m pretty positive I won’t miss those moments. .

Milk allergies are incredibly common in kids Divya’s age. Luckily most kids grow out of it. I always like to clarify a few things with milk allergies: 🍼It differs from lactose intolerance as these patients are missing the enzyme lactase which helps break down the lactose sugar that’s found in milk products. 🍼Avoid other mammalian milks like goat and sheep because they are highly cross-reactive. 🍼Studies show that if patients consume baked milk products, that most patients can tolerate it and it may speed up the time it takes to outgrow the allergy! 🍼There is a different type of milk allergy that causes blood streaked stools. With avoidance of milk, the symptoms improve. This generally resolves in infancy. 🍼🍼🍼
As always, talk to your allergist for personal recommendations!

Man, I was SO tempted to buy this fanny pack yesterday as the “allergy medical bag” for the twins classroom at school. I can just imagine the look on their teachers' faces when I’d say this needs to follow them wherever they go in the building 😂😂 I mean, come on, you need a sense of humor when dealing with severe food allergies. #twinlife #laughingisthebestmedicine #allergymom #allergiessuck

How do you start your day?

I am trying a new little morning routine. Rather than starting my day wity emails, news, etc. I am sitting back and reflecting on what has come into my life that I am truly grateful for yesterday. No more rememebering how rough the prior day was, I am looking at it all positive and turning it into a better vibe to learn from 💖

Been busy “Back-to-schooling!” Using my Valor to get through the feels! What helps you?

Finley’s first time eating at a bakery! We savor moments like these, and wish we could provide them for everyone. Grateful we can bake for many allergy, Celiac, and EoE kiddos. Thanks for sharing, Tiffany!💕

We are closed today, then open W-Sun. Wishes for a needs-met Tuesday!

Photos of my garden!!! 90% of what is growing are volunteers, meaning, I didn't plant them. Not even sure what some of them are. I don't have the heart to thin some of them out.😰😨🌺🌸🌻💜 I swear I see colors of petunias that haven't purchased in years and I have NEVER planted petunias in the ground... My mums are gearing up to bloom. 😍💜🌸 #bloom #allthecolors #flowers #happy #handsinthedirt #connected #rain #tuesday #talktome #wild #stayathomemom #allergymom #garden #doyouknow #momofboth #effortless #unexpected #surprise #snapdragon #mums #petunia

SITUATION FOOD ALLERGY. ⠀

BLOG POST #178 — Because of your daughter's food allergy, you have a firm “no unsafe food in your car" policy. This was recently challenged, however, after you agreed to drive several of your daughter’s teammates to a soccer tournament. ⠀

About 10 minutes into the drive, Abby, one of the players, reaches into her backpack and pulls out a snack. ⠀

“I missed breakfast this morning,” she announces. “I’m super hungry so my mom gave me this.”⠀

Using your rearview mirror, you immediately look at the cupcake. Just as you expected... an unsafe Creamed-filled donut. ⠀

You see your daughter glance at you. It’s a pleading, “please mom don’t say anything” glance. ⠀

You are part of the caravan, which is already running late, so pulling over isn’t possible. GPS says you are more than an hour away. ⠀

What do you say?⠀

As kids all over are getting ready for back to school. Think about making extra pancakes on the weekend or your free time. Then freeze them between parchment paper...in the morning, just pop them in the toaster!
Try my quinoa pancake recipe...it’s packed with protein! (See bios)
