Another Broken Arm

This is the 2nd summer in a row that Nathan broke his arm, this year he fell off his new bike. It was broken so bad that we could see the bone sticking up...he needed surgery.

He was such a trooper, it is going to be a long summer of no swimming, bike riding, golfing or anything else that he needs his arm to do.

After surgery, resting...

Have You Heard About SafeFARE?

Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) has a new online resource for families dining out with food allergies called SafeFARE. SafeFARE offers tools and resources for diners with food allergies, including tips for before and during your visit to a restaurant, a customizable “Food Allergy Alert” chef card, and a “Find a Restaurant” feature that enables visitors to locate allergy aware restaurants in their area. As a parent to a child with allergies, I know how difficult dining out can be so I hope you can take a few minutes to explore the SafeFARE website by visiting www.SafeFARE.orgYou can also learn more about the program by checking out FARE’s special new PSA featuring top chefs Bryan Voltaggio and Mike Isabella.

In honor of Food Allergy Awareness Week I hope my readers can help spread the word about the program with your friends and family. The SafeFARE database of food allergy aware restaurants is just getting started and together we can help it grow! FARE urges families with food allergies to tell their local restaurants about the SafeFARE program and has created a flyer that can be downloaded and shared with restaurant staff and managers to let them know how to become a food allergy aware restaurant. 

Thank you!
