Your Grandchildren’s Food Allergies: A Guide for Grandparents

If you have any experience in the food allergy world, you likely know the uphill battle that adults and children with food allergies, as well as parents of children with food allergies, face when it comes to educating those around you. From scenes in TV and film that make fun of allergic reactions to the “we never had food allergies when we were growing up” attitude (which, by the way, is somewhat true), it’s a challenge to get those around us who do not live with it to understand its severity. An allergen to your grandchild is like kryptonite to Superman. One bite (or less!) of the wrong food can lead to an anaphylactic reaction, which happens quickly and, if not treated right away, is potentially fatal. I will say it again: potentially fatal.

Finding Meaning in The Mundane

At the very moment we wake in the morning, human nature is establishing our perspective on the day ahead. It’s almost like a blinking light that goes off and sets us up for the hours moving forward.

Yes, Grandma Knows Best!

Back in her day, Grandma probably had no idea what “eating clean” was if you asked her. And even if you tried explaining it to her, she’d probably say she didn’t give a hoot. Still, her diet wasn’t all Salisbury steak and Jell-O salad. Your granny and her gang ate plenty of foods that were actually really healthy, too. The foods were simplistic and easy, and while today they might not graze the top of the ‘cool‘ list, they certainly have value and are not outdated for your nutritional needs. Here are six to consider. (Instagram them enough times, and who knows- you might start seeing what grandma knew, all that clearer!)*

Eat the Season – Get Your Summer On!

Imagine your perfect summer day, sitting in the back yard with the sun shining and the breeze blowing. The birds are chirping, and you marvel at the beauty of this season. Then, suddenly hunger hits…. you reach into your bag and pull out a thermos of piping hot, simmering, thick tomato soup.  Wait, what?  That doesn’t sound very refreshing.  Because it’s not!  Those warming foods are great for the winter months when our body needs to be cuddled and warmed; however, in summer months the trend for a lighter fare of cooling refreshing foods like fresh fruits and vegetables are the flavors of the season that you need to draw upon.
