Living With Food Allergies Blog Carnival - 4/28 edition

I am excited to be hosting this edition of the Living With Food Allergies blog carnival!

First, a big shout-out to Jennifer at Food Allergy Buzz for re-invigorating the food allergy blog carnival this year -- we missed it!

As many of you probably know, May is allergy awareness month, and the week of May 8th is Food Allergy Awareness Week. Given that, I'm thrilled that some of our contributors focused on awareness:

Trista presents How will you celebrate Food Allergy Awareness Week? posted at Food Allergy Families, saying, "Food Allergy Awareness Week is just around the corner. Now is the perfect time to get involved and encourage others to do the same."

Jennifer is Always Sick presents Food Allergies and Bullying : Threats, Assaults, Attempted Murder posted at Always Sick and Tired, saying, "All about how to protect our kids at school when they have food allergies, how to educate others about food allergies, and the consequences that should be inflicted against those who bully and threaten a child with foods they are a allergic to."

Eric presents a review of Allergic Girl's new book,  Book Review | Allergic Girl: Adventures In Living Well With Food Allergies at World (and Lunar) Domination.

Jennifer Kales presents Food Allergies and Seasonal/Pet Allergies...Triple Whammy posted at The Nut-Free Mom, saying, "My daughter always inspires me in the way that she handles her many allergies with optimism and grace."

Are you looking for an allergen-free salad idea? Libby presents Spring Salad with Fresh Corn and Asparagus posted at The Allergic Kid.

And while you're here at Learning to Eat Allergy Free please check out a video post on How to Make Flax Seed Eggs.
Submit your blog article to the next edition of living with food allergies carnival using the carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.

Thanks for this info! I am and have a son with severe food allergies. I offer recipes and info on allergies and planned to do some things for awareness that week - great to know there is a whole community reaching out and sharing. Thankfully our son is much better now because he even had intolerances that caused awful eczema - but once he began taking his Vidazorb probiotic he really got so much better! We do and always will avoid his allergies though and I am so thankful for this community of parents who understand.

I can personally vouch for the use of probiotics! They are hypoallergenic and an excellent way to keep yourself regular and feeling good. Proud supporter of probiotics for infants
