This week, May 8-14, is Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW). And while food allergies can be much more severe than food sensitivities, there is a common theme among the two, which is that people alter some of their food choices and habits in order to stay healthy and comfortable.
In recognition of FAAW, the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network has a special blog filled with great recipes, new research, and tips for staying safe with food allergies. The most common food allergies, according to the Network’s website, are milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat.
If you or someone you know has food allergies, the Network’s website is a good resource for information and ideas to stay healthy. Have a good FAAW!
Thank you for mentioning this extremely important issue on your blog. The more awareness there is, the safer those we love with life-threatening allergies will be!
Thanks for this information. I did not know of this website or of allergy awareness week. Thought I’m one of the lucky ones, there are many people in my circle who have definite food allergies and sensitivities! It’s so good to have a resource for “safe” recipes.
