Crispy Green and Nutrimom Tackling Food Allergies Together!

For those who are oh so familiar with trying to find healthy snacks that are also allergy-friendly, I have been been a long time customer of Crispy Green. In case they are not in your home town, Crispy Green is a company that makes dehydrated fruit crisps. The best part? They are fruit and that's it- no sugar added, no preservatives and that's something that gives parents a peace of mind.

I am excited and pleased to share the official announcement that Crispy Green and I are teaming up to tackle food allergies!

"Crispy Green, the maker of Crispy Fruit, single-ingredient freeze-dried fruit snacks, has teamed up with noted food allergy advisor, blogger and author Tracy Bush, also known as “Nutrimom - Food Allergy Liaison” to offer suggestions to families who may be new to the issue of food allergies.

Food allergies among American children are on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, the prevalence of allergies among U.S. children younger than 18 years old has increased from 3.4 percent in 1997 to 5.1 percent in 2011. In fact, the CDC estimates one of every 13 children has a food allergy, with nuts, soy, milk, egg, wheat and shellfish being the most common culprits. For a child with a food allergy, there are no shortcuts to safety.

“Identifying a list of ‘safe’ foods and snacks is imperative,” explains Bush. "Products like Crispy Green are easy for me to recommend to those I consult with because of the things it doesn’t include – it is peanut- and tree-nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free. It’s also very portable and good to have on hand in a ‘pinch’ when fresh fruit or other options may not be available.” Tracy has also recently published an e-book called "The Stepping Stones to Food Allergies."

“Our single-ingredient products are safe for many kids with food allergies,” says Angela Liu, President and Founder of Crispy Green. “Because we care greatly about this growing, very serious health issue for both kids and their parents, we are working with Nutrimom to help those with food allergies navigate a little easier.”

Sincerest thanks to Crispy Green for allowing me the honor of helping to educate and empower more people by collaborating on this project. With their commitment to showing consumers that they are dedicated to healthy foods and my expertise, I know that many will begin an easier journey into the world of food allergies. As always, I am here to help.
