Last night at a church activity, one of the workshop classes was about Food Allergies. I’m not very familiar with food allergies because I don’t know anyone close to me who has them (at least not life threatening) or at least we’ve never really talked about it. So I thought it would be a good thing to know in case one of my children has food allergies or you can even develop them as an adult!
In fact when I was a junior in college I thought I had developed lactose intolerance. It’s common to develop it in your early 20’s. It wasn’t bad, but made me feel sick sometimes. So I took out most dairy like milk and yogurt for a while. I started feeling better and then reintroduced them into my diet. And now I’m fine. In fact if you develop a food allergy that isn’t life threatening, take it out of your diet for 3 months and then slowly reintroduce it and you may be able to eat those foods again!
It appears that food allergies are on the rise although no one is completely sure why. So I wanted to share this info with you in case you or your child develops a food allergy.
Here are the steps to take.
