Recently, I helped start up a Facebook group with Jennifer B of Food Allergy Buzz called "You Don't Need Nuts to Fly." Along with a lot of other food allergy bloggers and advocates, we were disappointed to learn that Northwest Airlines (recently acquired by Delta) will now be serving peanuts, after years of going "peanut-free." So instead of stewing, we are trying to gain support from people like us who deal with severely nut-allergic individuals in our families.
Check out the link to learn more about this Facebook group. We invite you to join the discussion and share your comments. And if you'd like to communicate with Northwest Airlines directly, here's a link.
And speaking of Facebook, Jenn of the food allergy blog Rational Jenn just wrote a terrific post outlining exactly what it's like to be the mother of a child with a life-threatening allergy to nuts. She posted the link on her Facebook page today. I couldn't have said it better myself! :) Way to go, Jenn.
(BTW, I'm not sure why so many of us with nut-allergic children are named "Jennifer."!!!)
