I stopped by the school yesterday to check out some food for my son's 1st grade class. We have 2 weeks until school starts and his teacher asked me if I could come in a check out a few snacks. I am really happy with the teacher's proactive, positive attitude about my son's peanut allergy.
All of the snacks she bought were safe. It was easy to check the labels and it made me feel great to be checking labels before school starts.
Reading food labels is just part of life for us. I read food labels every single time I shop. I read them when we are visiting friends. I read them at home. It seems like I read them everywhere. I read food labels constantly. It's just a normal part of food allergy life.
I never imagined I'd find a food label that made me laugh.
I can laugh as a food allergy mom. Sometimes, I need to laugh.
