Welcome to Mom Vs. Food Allergy! I’m Rachel, the mom, tackling the food allergy challenges in our family. I am a Music Educator turned stay-at-home mom to Nathan & Julia, and wife to my amazing husband, Brent. Nathan will be 4 in July and is our food allergic kiddo. He is allergic to dairy, oat, egg, peanuts, raw tomato, carrot, and pumpkin. We also avoid all tree nuts and strawberries at the advice of our awesome pediatric allergist. Nathan must also limit wheat, corn, and sesame due to low positive blood test results, but does not have visible reactions. Julia just turned 1 in March, and has no known food allergies to this point! We decided to have blood tests for her, and I’m so glad we did. My goal with Mom Vs. Food Allergy is to share our challenges and victories, educate those with & without food allergies, and pass on recipes & tips that have made our journey a little more bearable.
