allergies-nightshade-plants

From: Kari Jones
Foodfacts.com has recently played a huge role in our lives. Last week, my three year  old suddenly developed a severe allergic reaction to almost everything in the nightshade family. She was eating a
Lunchable, something that she has eaten hundreds of times before and she broke out into hives and her face began to swell. We gave her  Benedryl and took her in. The doctor said if we would have waited any
longer she would have gone into shock. Within a week, our lives have been turned upside down. When I called the Lunchable  company and I was shocked to learn that they aren’t required to put certain things on their labels!
I stumbled on to foodfacts.com and it has been a saving grace. The fact that you acknowledge nightshade allergies is fantastic. With your site I have been able to start a running list of things that she can and can’t eat to give to
babysitters and grandparents. Thank you so much for making this life transition a little easier for us.
