Wow. It was such a huge deal when I went to college and the UC campus I chose made it very very difficult and in fact actively discriminated against me. This makes me feel better about my daughter's college possibities.
Thanks for asking. We've had parents request a children's or teens forum, but as an organization, we'd need to be compliant with the federal law, COPPA - Children's Online Child Protection and Privacy Act. As such, we'd need to have parental consent for children under age 13 to participate and we'd have to monitor conversations to make sure children are adequately protected on our forums. We've asked for parent volunteers to help with an effort like this, but haven't had anyone really come...
Was that directed to me?? I actually didn't work on that particular handout, but yes a lot of work goes into resources like this. And it's always a difficult balancing act since dealing w/ food allergies is a wide spectrum. If you have concerns or suggestions, you can e-mail them directly to Lynda at the address she provided above. I'm sorry to hear it did not fit your particular needs and you decided not to give it to the teacher. Thank for your feedback though as it is always good to get a...
Hi Cheryl! Welcome to KFA I wanted to add a note about "inclusion". Usually around here when we're talking about inclusion, we mean that the allergen should be removed from the situation or the environment should be made safe for the child with food allergies so that they can be included in an activity. We are not meaning it to say that a kid with a milk allergy should have to sit and endure a milk-laden pizza party. That's not what we mean by "inclusive". From your post, I couldn't tell if...
Leslie, I'm not sure ... I'm thinking you could try it without it but you may have to adjust the other ingredients because the protein powder may act like a binder of sorts, and it may be too wet otherwise. I'll send up a flare and see if we can't figure it out.
Wow, that was a great catch, Sunny! Does your daughter avoid both peanuts and tree nuts? Here's a great resource that's helped me understand labeling ... FAQ About the Food Allergen Labeling Consumer Protection Act . It was eye-opening how many exceptions there were!
The one thing that's not stated here is children that are seriously allergic to red dye that is in almost all foods, I have kids that are seriously allergic to red dye and made many trips to the emergency room cause of it, I found that really only organic and all natural foods don't have it and that can be really expensive to buy all the time so making your own foods is best for that one.
Welcome, @Crazy dragon mama ! You're right that it's really hard to deal with a food allergy to an ingredient that's in many foods. We have other folks who deal with "non Top 8" allergies like your family's on our forums ... why not hop over to our Food and Cooking forum and start a topic to share some of your tips and tricks? I'd definitely be interested in comparing notes!
