The New York Times likens her to Erin Brokavich (a compliment, indeed!) and the two know each other. We've all heard about the rise in food allergies among kids in the U.S. And by now we know the 'no nut' policy at just about every child care center and school. Since my kids (thankfully) don't suffer from an allergy, I haven't paid all that much attention to the issue - unless rooting out the cashews that are ever-present in my bag before I deliver or retrieve my kids from child care counts, that is!
But this morning I read about a Mom who is taking this head on, and whether or not I agree with her (mostly I do, though there is very little evidence in this area), I really, really admire her. And she does it all from a laptop on her dining room table in the midst of four kids. How could you not admire her?
So check out her schtick. Her web site, AlleregyKids.com, is chockablock with info for the afflicted and the politically active, as well as products to help identify your child's allergy to those who need to know (lunch labels, stickers, Croc charms, etc...). Have you heard of her before? What do you think? I'm impressed. Four kids and taking on the food behemoths? You go, Robyn, and thanks!
