Silver Lining for Allergy Sufferers?

Here's some rather good news for a Monday: A recent Cornell University study allows that allergies may have a silver lining after all.

According to the research outlined in the article, food and environmental allergies may help prevent certain cancers because of the fact that allergy sufferers are already avoiding chemicals and certain foods that have been proven to increase cancer risk.

We're always on the lookout for silver linings, so I thought I'd share this story!

Also, please let us know your favorite spring holiday food allergy solutions: do you have allergy-friendly activities or recipes that work for your family? Feel free to share them here.

We are going to decorate felt Easter Eggs this week. My kids are still a little young for the painted ones, so I thought the felt would be easy for them to work with. I have cut out of flowers and such and we will decorate. I will post our results.

Thanks for the tip, Elaine! Your idea sounds like fun and perfect for younger kids since it's less messy.

Looking forward to seeing what your little artists come up with!
