Food allergies are on the rise, and there is a chance you have a child or know a child (or three) who has a food allergy. Today we explore the experiences of Gina’s good friend Rachel, who’s daughter Gracie is allergic to peanuts and eggs. How and when was she diagnosed? What was it like having a young child in daycare? What’s Gracie’s prognosis and what therapies are an option? Rachel also provides tips for getting through holiday parties, and how to support any holidays guests with food allergies.
