What Are Your Food Allergy Resolutions for 2016?


We asked: What are your food allergy resolutions for 2016? Here are some of your answers:

Resolve to Put Myself First

“I'm taking better care of me so I can take good care of everyone else.” -Kathryn


Resolve to Learn to Cook New Dishes

"My resolution was to learn to cook Asian cuisine safely managing our PN/TN/Sesame allergy. So far I have cooked Beef and Broccoli, Pork Fried Rice, Orange Chicken and Crab Rangoons. All were delicious and I can guarantee healthier than we would have eaten in an American Chinese food restaurant!" - Mother of William and Sean

Resolve to Build Awareness

"Educating my immediate family and keeping our food list typed and up-to-date." - Heather

Resolve to Define My Boundaries

"Standing up for my son to have a safe environment even when I am afraid of the confrontation." - Melissa

Resolve to Organize

“To come up with a better way to keep it all straight. We manage 18 food allergies with my son and now we suspect my daughter of four different allergies.” - Emily

Resolve to Encourage My Child's Independence

“Starting to wing off my son, and let him start ordering his own food at restaurants and letting waiters know he has allergies, letting him read more of his own labels, and letting him grab his own epinephrine when leaving home, and me not been the one remembering to do so! Of course I will be the safety to make sure nothing goes through!" - Claudia
