Safer Snacks For Allergy Sufferers

Safer Snacks For Allergy Sufferers
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’m the mom of four little ones, my oldest Emmalee was diagnosed with a severe peanut allergy at just 14 months old.  One of my worst fears had come true, because I knew it would now be an everyday battle to find safer snacks and food for her to eat. When she first began seeing an allergist it is very apparent that she has a massive amount of triggers for her allergies and now has tree nuts, and coconuts added to her food allergy list.

At seven years old she is now the proud owner and carrier of her very own Epi-Pen because her peanut allergy is so bad. When she started school I was terrified of sending her because so many foods have peanuts or peanut butter. I was terrified of one of her friends giving her a piece of candy. We are very adamant in making her very aware of what she is eating. Now that she can read she will also read the labels.

Air Fryer Oven Cooking For The Busy Lifestyle

I was introduced to my first air fryer a year ago. I like using the air fryer to make salmon.  It really saves time and energy as I don’t have to heat up the oven.  I tried making his favorite foods in it and he just wasn’t having it (he’s a picky eater). I only used it a few times and then it sat in a cupboard for months until I decided to pull it out again and give it another try!

Now that we have our own home and settling in, I’ve had the air fryer sitting proudly on my countertop! Nowadays, my son has me use the air fryer daily for his foods!

Pre-Teen Skincare Doesn't Have To Be Complicated

I see it asked a dozen different times in several mom groups I follow on Facebook, what skin care products should I get for my pre-teen? I then see another dozen different responses on what companies, which specific products worked for their child, why they didn’t like another recommendation provided, and the list goes on and on. But, let’s not make it any more complicated than we need to. Every skin type follows the basic principles when it comes to finding a routine that works best. Pre-teen skincare is no different.
