Read on for details about the event, as well as coupon codes and a ticket giveaway!
When we first found out that Thing 1 had MSPI, I was lost and, honestly, a bit overwhelmed. We had to find replacements for his favorite foods: Cheetos, yogurt, Goldfish, and string cheese, to name a few (no wonder he was barfing all the time…), and finding substitutes that taste good enough a 2 year old will accept them? A tricky prospect at best.
Fast forward 3 years and we discovered that Thing 2 had a severe dairy allergy (hello epi-pen!) and our entire house became essentially dairy free.
Google became my best friend. Grocery trips were an undertaking best handled without the kids, as it took forever to read through all the product labels. Gradually, I began finding products we loved and followed them on social media, which helped lead me to other allergen friendly brands. Now, I can whip through grocery shopping like a pro, and I keep a mental Rolodex of allergen friendly (and distinctly NON friendly) products, but an expo like GFAF? Wow, that would have been an amazing boon for our allergy journey!

My youngest child has food and tree nut allergies, and it has been a struggle to get a good overview of options and recipes. The chance to sample and talk to vendors will really open doors for us to try foods so that I can get a break from cooking everything for her.
We have dealt with food allergies with our family and close friends. I would enjoy the opportunity to learn more and find appetizing products. It is always more fun in a big group to learn and sample and explore. I am so excited for the expo!
I would love a chance to take my wife to this. We have been dealing with food issues in our youngest too and would love some help learning what to do and what is good- when we go to the store it is such a toss up and lots and lots of label reading. Would love to find out and try out some companies!
Have the ticket/tickets been drawn for already? Just curious 🙂 Hadn’t seen a winner posted so thought I would check. Thanks for the opp!
I attend this as well this weekend and I had so much fun that I can not wait to attend next year’s Festival.
