On Episode 7 of “Children’s Pedcast” and in recognition of National Food Allergy Awareness Week, we get a parent’s perspective on food allergies. Mother, blogger, marketing pro and food-allergy advocate Missy Berggren, also known as “Marketing Mama,” joins the show to share her experiences raising a child with severe food allergies.
Whether or not you’re a parent of a child with a food allergy, Missy provides answers related to school, restaurants, play dates and parties that others may find helpful. We also learn the eight most common food allergies in the U.S.
