I guess this is another hard time - dealing with food allergies.

ALLERGY INFORMATION: MAY CONTAIN ALMONDS.
This made me angry. What about the Peanuts and milk which are both listed in the ingredient list. I can't believe Mars didn't list in bold in the allergy information. I think this is very misleading and if I didn't know better and just looked at the allergy information and gave it to my child, it could have been a deadly mistake. I am going to call or email Mars about this. Now I wonder how many other labels I just looked at the allergy information and not the ingredients. Sometimes the ingredients are strange and I don't know what they are so I rely on the allergy information to tell me what on the main 8 allergens the food contains.

Qutoed from the email:
Much the same as traditional Allergy SHOTs, Your Child’s Allergy DROPs contain FDA Approved pure Extracts of “Let Likes Cure Likes” Allergens i.e. Weed, Pet, Dust to which the Patient is actually Allergic To ! Slowly over a 80 Week Protocol, Allergy DROP Allergen Extract Concentrations are increased, allowing the Bodies Immune System to rely on its inherent recuperative abilities and ReCalibrate itself, thereby neutralizing Your Child’s Allergies at the Disease Source, No longer triggering Allergy Symptoms, eradicating Allergy
Complications and Producing Lasting, if Not LifeTime Benefits.
I wonder if this is something that could really work and isn't a scam. I have heard of this before but wonder why a Dr or allergist hasn't mentioned it to us.

Today, I take Nathan for the Flu shot and since he is two, the nurse said he could have the nasal vaccine, but then she asked if he has Asthma. Yes, he does, so he can't have the nasal vaccine. So he then had the shot done in the arm. Poor guy.
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
2 Tbsp. margarine
1 cup vanilla-flavored soy or rice milk
Stir frequently approximately 10-15 minutes until it turns a caramel color.
Let mixture cool down slightly, then use as a sauce for whole apples or a dip for apple slices. Makes enough for about two apples.

I could also make baked apples with Cinnamon and other spices that would make a good fall treat that is safe.

We also looked at a paramedic (which Nathan has already been in one when he was 9 months old) because he needed to be rushed to the hospital after an allergy attack. I don't want him to think paramedics or fire trucks are scary, I want him to understand they are nice people who help you.

Subject: New Store Location
To Whom it may concern:
I am writing to request a Whole Foods Market in my area. My son has severe food allergies and we need to by most of his food at special health food stores. We love Whole Foods but the closet store is over 40 miles away. We are in the middle of the Milwaukee, WI store and the Madison, WI store. A store in Waukesha, WI would be great, this would be in the middle of your two current stores. Waukesha is a big county with approximately 380,985 residents and is the fastest growing county in WI. For more information on my county please visit:
My family and I deserve to have a store near us with healthy, natural and organic food.
Thank you for your time.
Auto Reply I received:
Thank you very much for your interest in Whole Foods Market and obvious support of our company. We appreciate your desire to have one of our stores located in your area. Your email will be forwarded to the Store Development Team for consideration.

But, I have a plan.....the night after Trick-or-Treat, Nathan will put all his bad candy (the stuff he can't eat) into the pumpkin bucket. Then while he is sleeping the Great Pumpkin will come and take the bad stuff and replace it with good stuff. This can be safe candy, coloring books, halloween toys, etc.
It will be a special tradition we will start for him this year.
