Treats Not Tricks


Halloween is quickly approaching, which means, so are the holidays! I want to recommend a blog shared with me by Dairy Allergy Dad along with a couple of bakeries that may prove useful for many us this time of year!  If you are not a baker (which I am NOT!), consider these two online bakeries that are dedicated to the allergy community when planning your holiday parties or birthday parties. They are Divvies Bakery and BabyCakes NYC.  There are no brick and mortar stores in Houston, but they both ship nationally.  I have ordered cupcakes from Divvies for one of my son's birthday parties and they were good.  Honestly, at the time, I think I enjoyed the 'worry free' piece of them more.  The cupcakes were dense and tasty.  I think we ordered the vanilla.

For those of you that have ever visited Disney, then you may have seen or heard of BabyCakes NYC.  I have not had anything, yet, from this bakery.  If any of you have eaten at BabyCakes NYC or have had Divvies products, please leave a comment at the end of the post to be shared with our readers.  I am intrigued.

October is Public Safety Month

With October kicking off the start to the Holiday season we thought it would be appropriate to recognize October as Public Safety in our meeting theme.

We will have a special guest join us to discuss and share their knowledge of EMS, EMT training on anaphylaxis, and known ambulatory care protocol in an anaphylaxis emergency.

We hope to see everyone at the October 20 meeting. I have included a link to an article FARE published last month about their findings after conducting a parent survey about their experience with ED and EMS care for serious food allergy reactions.
