Food Allergy Week Awareness Week Wraps Up with Delicious Recipes and Informational Posts


Food Allergy Awareness Week LogoAlisa Fleming ~ Food Allergy Awareness Week is wrapping up (the event was slated for May 8 through May 14 for 2011), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of resources and recipes to continue enjoying and sharing.

The FAAN blog hosted these awesome posts from top Food Allergy writers this past week:

Cybele Pascal, author of The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook, shared a delicious egg-free, milk-free, nut-free, soy-free, gluten-free recipe (that happens to be vegan too!) in her post, Boston Cream Pie.

Kelly Rudnicki, author of The Food Allergy Mama's Baking Book, shared an egg-free, milk-free, and nut-free (also vegan) recipe for Classic Chocolate Birthday Cake with Creamy Chocolate Frosting in her post, Special Delivery.

Sloane Miller, food allergy advocate and author of the new book, Allergic Girl: Adventures in Living Well with Food Allergies, summed up this event in her post, My Food Allergy Awareness Week.

Gina Clowes, author of One Of The Gang: Nurturing the Souls of Children with Food Allergies and founder of Allergy Moms offers youthful advice in her post, Tips for Food Allergies – A Child's Perspective.

Jennifer B., founder of Food Allergy Buzz, rounds out the week with a food allergy-focused post (naturally) on Helping Each Other.

Thanks to these incredible food allergy moms for sharing so much useful information! Also, see the Food Allergy Awareness Week page for more information and resources that you can use to help spread awareness throughout the year.

Food Allergy Awareness Week was established in 1997 by the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), a patient and family advocacy and education organization. This year, the Food Allergy Initiative, another advocacy group, joins FAAN in recognizing the commemorative week. Both FAAN and FAI participated in the development of the food allergy guidelines. Food Allergy Awareness week is officially “observed” by the National Institute of Health.
