The Reality of Cross Contact

When my son was first diagnosed with multiple, life-threatening food allergies, I met with many doctors, allergists, and nutritionists.   All of them brought up the issue of cross contact and the importance of doing everything possible to reduce the risk of this.   It is often something people without allergies do not consider.   (I know that I never thought about it before my son’s first allergic reaction.)

Here is an excellent resource that discusses this topic.   Check it out and help us smile on…

    Such an important topic! Unfortunately, it is one that we have to endlessly explain to teachers, family, neighbors etc. It’s true, when my oldest was born (he’s now 9) we were all over park playgrounds, restaurants and doing what most would consider normal. Cross contamination wasn’t even a thought. When my youngest was diagnosed our new normal became, no shoes in the house, visitors washing hands when entering the house and definitely before touching him, don’t share food, cups and a laundry list of other things that just don’t occur to others as possible dangers to a food allergic child. Thank you for spreading the word 🙂
