It's a humbling lesson sometimes as they negotiate a restaurant meal and come up with something far better than you could have imagined.
Or watch them "pre-game"-- which we all call eating beforehand-- for a party that may not serve something safe.
Or, as has happened at my house, the gracious " no worries" when my cocktail party planning includes only one or two items safe for my kid.
Let's hope that this year brings new highs in food allergy-- already with the news that by introducing peanuts early in an infant's diet it may lead to possible less potential peanut allergies (more on this later).
I look forward to more good sharing of our strength and stories.
