  4. Hi Tamar,

    Thanks for letting me know about this site. I have children who are lactose intolerant and my oldest has multiple allergies and medical limitations on what he can eat. It's not easy and thanks for giving me another resource.

  5. I'm so happy I came across your blog! My (Protestant), allergic, eosinophilic esophagitic (is that an adjective?) so goes to the local JCC for early childhood education, in part because they are very on top of his IgE allergies (all mammals, dairy, tomato, soy); anaphylactic to dairy), and cognizant of the fact that he can only eat apples, bananas, avocados, and drink NeoCate. My question....I asked the director of Early Childhood to "ban" parents from bringing in birthday treats for their kiddos, and instead bring stickers, crayons, etc, she balked. (There are 7 allergic kids (of varying degrees) out of 16 in the class. SHE told me that because the parents can't bring anything that's not Kosher into the school, and ticks parents off, she can't ask parents to NOT bring food into classrooms. Thoughts? Again, I am not Jewish, so I don't know. But from an allergy and obesity standpoint....wouldn't it make sense to ban food? UUUGH. Food allergies are so annoying. (so is eosinophilic esophagitis, for that matter). Again, thanks for starting this!

  6. Thanks for your question that speaks to all of us sending food allergic kids to school. The heart of the issue is the balance between the medical needs of the child and the inconvenience to other parents. I'm only guessing that food free birthday parties might be too radical a notion for many parents. Having a nutfree classroom might be more within bounds though.

  8. You have a good start. Now I REALLY need a good recipe for a moist tender round challah for the gluten free. Spelt has gluten. If I could put raisins or chopped dates in it, even better!
