Welcome back to our “Food Allergies in the News” weekly roundup.
Each Sunday, I’m going to gather up what I believe are the most interesting food allergy articles from the week prior and bring them to you in one post. It’s just like getting your Sunday paper! This way you can be up-to-date on all of the food allergy happenings, too!
So here is the roundup for May 3rd, 2015:
- On Chattanoogan.com, “Kyle Dine Concert Raises Food Allergy Awareness.” Super excited for Kyle Dine and all of the food allergy families in Dalton. Kyle is a wonderful story teller, singer/songwriter and great at raising food allergy awareness. He has some fun CDs that can be purchased and a DVD coming out later this summer. Be sure to check his tour schedule to find out if he’ll be performing at a location near you. Have you seen him perform?
- On Finanace.Yahoo.com, “Chipotle Is Going To Stop Using GMOs In Its Food.” WOOHOO! Thank you Chipotle for removing the GMOs from your foods. I hope this will begin a trend. Only time will tell. What do you think?
- On USAToday.com, “Peanuts, Cracker Jack Get The Boot At Some Ball Games.” After working with the Indianapolis Indians for a year, the game finally happened last week. It was incredible to see all of the publicity that the game brought about. So great for the food allergy community. Does your hometown baseball team offer a peanut free night?
- On WishTV.com, “Peanut-Free Night At Ballpark Raises Awareness Of Allergy.” It was so fun to get to be a part of this event. We are hopeful that another game will be scheduled for later in the season. Oh and yes, you can see yours truly in the video! 🙂 Have you been to a peanut-free game?
- On AllergicLiving.com, “Allergy-Friendly Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2015.” This is a wonderful gift guide roundup for Mother’s Day. What will you be getting your mom?
- On KXAN.com, “Olympian Vaults To Defense Of Allergic Kids In Texas.” I love reading stories about families who go up and beyond to raise food allergy awareness. Texas is blessed to have the Gaylord family who are fighting to raise awareness and get some laws passed that put epinephrine in public places where food is being served. Does your state have a law like this?
- On PRWeb.com, “Half Of Americans Lack Knowledge About Food Allergies, Survey Finds.” Do these facts and statistics shock you? I’m not totally surprised, but it’s sad at the same time. What are your thoughts on the article?
I hope you enjoyed reading these articles. What was your favorite? What did you see in the news that I missed?
