Welcome to Fun Kid Snacks!
I am not just a Registered Nurse who knows how serious food allergies are. I am a Mom who has had a serious allergic reaction, and a parent to 3 daughters with food allergies. Learning how to still live with joy, after the diagnosis of a food allergy, is the reality that our family lives with every day.
One day my daughter came home from school crying because she did not get a chocolate birthday cupcake from school “just in case it had nuts.” While this happened out of concern for her, I was saddened by how often food became tears because of a food allergy.
That day I made a decision for my family. I decided we would find some way to bring joy into the kitchen using foods my family is not allergic to. Every time we make a fun and healthy, allergy friendly snack, we send out a prayer of joy to another family facing the reality of food allergies.
When we started, our goal was just to bring a smile to the faces of our 3 daughters with nut allergies.
It turns out, many other families were interested in smiling also – because we are now featured in San Diego Family Magazine’s Snacking with Joy!
We are so happy to share the smiles!
