Should restaurants come with an allergy alert? - Blog Post #5

Mar 29, 2017 I have to admit, I love eating out. I love trying various types of food; I love sitting down to a fabulously filling tasting menu with friends; I love ordering takeout and sitting at home watching a great movie. Not only do all of these things negate the need for me to cook, but they allow me to try so many different foods that I never would have made for myself at home (at least not as deliciously) - from curry to spicy noodle dishes to lobster to white chocolate mascarpone brandy snap towers (my ALL TIME...

What's in a label? - Blog Post #4

I often hear people say, "The label looks fine, so it's safe." Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Canadian allergen labelling is confusing for many and when I first started on this journey, I used to think "that label looks safe". When researching food labelling laws when my son's allergy was first diagnosed, here is what I discovered.  The priority allergens that must be labelled in Canada are: tree nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios,  walnuts), peanuts, sesame, wheat, eggs, milk, soy, crustaceans, shellfish, fish, and mustard seeds. Gluten sources and sulphites must also be...

This ensures that he will get three full years of treatment on the patch. Hunter had reactions to the patch during the...

This past Monday, we learned that our son was the first person globally to complete the PEPITES peanut patch phase 3 trial, as well as the first person globally who will begin the rollover study, PEOPLE. This rollover study guarantees my son the peanut patch for an additional two or three years. If he was on the peanut patch for the first blinded year of PEPITES, he will get another two years of patches. If he was on the placebo during PEPITES, then he will receive three years of the peanut patch. You can read about the first food challenge...

The Ending Will Be A New Beginning - Blog Post #1

For my first blog post, I could write about my experience opening No Nuts About Us, from the idea to the Hawk’s Nest until now. I could write about my son and how we live daily with a severe peanut allergy. There are so many options. However, I have decided to choose a topic that has been at the forefront of our family for just over a year and the culmination of that experience comes to an end in just over a week. Of course, the ending will simply be a new beginning - with another two years of questions...
