No parent should ever have to live through the experience of worrying whether a small bite of something will kill their child, yet it is the reality of so many parents today – they worry through hundreds of meals. And imagine being a kid and relying grown-ups to tell you if something is safe or not while knowing that if it isn’t, it could make you extremely sick or even kill you?
We hope that one day, this problem doesn’t exist anymore. Until then, we hope and work and contribute toward solutions.
This Saturday, November 16th, the Safe Eats Team will participate in the FARE Walk in Nashville, TN! If you are a food allergy sufferer or a parent of one, you already know about FARE. If you don’t, I recommend you take a look at the FARE website for a wonderful array of educational information and research, as well as the amazing work they are doing toward solving the food allergy crisis. Consider donating. And at the very least, consider raising awareness by sharing this post with your friends and family.
We are thankful for the brave kids, and every person, family, community and organization that works toward making the world a safer place for our kids.
