Food Allergy Awareness Week: Read ingredient labels

Food allergies are on the rise everywhere and chances are you know someone with food allergies. Three and a half years ago my son was diagnosed with a peanut allergy at the age of 2½. He has never had an anaphylactic reaction, but has an Epi-Pen (which is an epinephrine injector) just in case. I have learned a lot about food allergies in that time, particularly on how to read a food label. If you don’t habitually read ingredient labels, take a look the next time you go grocery shopping.
