Balancing Life and Food Allergies is a new series starting today. With most things in life, there must be balance. The same goes for food allergies. How does one balance a strict grocery budget with the higher expense of allergy-friendly foods? How does one allow their food allergy child experience the exciting things in life, yet balance that with the need to supervise their life-threatening condition? There are many ways as we travel along our food allergy journey that we must strike a balance between living life and staying safe.
The things in life that we choose to balance are not only a personal decision, but also of varying degrees. You may not agree with the fact that we have peanut butter in our home with a peanut allergy, but agree that we made the right decision in removing cow’s milk. As with most things, we differ on how we approach certain issues and to what degree, if we choose to approach them at all. It should go without mentioning then, that this series will be my opinion only. Of course, I suppose that is the way with most blog posts, is it not?
If there is a specific topic that you would like to see covered in this series, please let me know. I intend to discuss topics ranging from food budgets and time management to loosening the hold on a child with food allergies and more.
