Food allergies are hard – no matter if you’re dealing with 1 or 10. And part of what makes it hard is the lack of knowledge available for those who do NOT deal with food allergies, so they can have a better understanding of what we go through in public AND behind the scenes.

I made this video of (most of) Leo’s last allergy appointment so you can actually see how the testing is done and I take the time to explain the importance of this testing.

A few side notes I did not mention in the video:
-Most doctors/allergists won’t recommend blood or skin tests until the age of 1

-Leo could have taken a blood test the same day to confirm whether or not the negative results were accurate, but we didn’t want to put him through that too. Testing is ALWAYS a parents choice.

-Most people who have a food allergy WILL have a reaction from simply touching the item and NOT SOLEY from ingesting it. I get asked this a lot 😉

Let me know what food allergy questions YOU have!
