Our Feingold Anniversary and a Giveaway!
In 2005 our youngest son suffered from debilitating migraines, a constant allergy nose and eczema that itched terribly. After numerous visits to our pediatrician and tests that included allergy panels and even an mri I noticed that there was a connection to food coloring and his headaches, then yellow 5 and migraines.
The Feingold Association came to our rescue. They provided information and a foodlist of researched products free of artificial dyes, flavors and related preservatives. Armed with the foodlist I was able to shop safely. In the member's support board I found a group of dedicated parents who were so helpful and supportive. We were able to pinpoint what items he was intolerant to using a simple elimination diet. No more migraines, no runny noses and no eczema!
I renew our membership each year and happily volunteer my time to this great organization. When I renewed this month I purchased a copy of Jane Hersey's booklet Healthier Food for Busy People. It's a simple, straightforward list of 20 food rules and explanations to follow to make better choices for your family. I'll even through in a copy of Michael Pollan's Food Rules because I think they compliment each other.
If you'd like it, leave me a comment below. We'll draw a winner next week and drop it in the mail.
