This is Food Allergy Awareness Week, so I’m doing my part the crafty way. As scary as food allergies can be, helping raise awareness about them does not have to be. Crafts are fun, crafts spread a message, crafts can get a serious point across in a not so serious way.
Food Allergy Awareness
Did you know 15 million Americans have food allergies? My son is one of them. There is probably one in your kid’s classroom, as 1 in 13 kids now has a food allergy. Some, like my son’s, are life threatning. Sunbutter is the peanut butter alternative we use in my nut free home. I thought what better way to let people know about Food Allergy Awareness Week than to let Baxter know that he is the Sunbutter to my jelly.

Maybe your little has an allergy to milk, shellfish or tree nuts – you can always tweak the design and concept. Again, food allergies are very serious, but reminding people about them in the hopes of raising awareness does not have to be.
