Food allergies, especially among children, are more common than you may think.

It is important to be aware of food allergies when sending your children to school, on play dates, or when participating in other group activities. Even if your own children do not suffer from food allergies, it is likely that a friend or classmate does.

Reading is a perfect summer activity for the whole family - keeping adult minds stimulated, providing an escape and adventure for teens, and an opportunity for quiet downtime for younger children. I have put together my family's summer reading list filled with books about health, food and self-care. I hope you find a title or two that fills your summer with relaxation, knowledge and inspiration.
