Rather than feel overwhelmed by Aidan's food allergies, Amy felt energized and hopeful now that she had a plan for feeding him. She sought out a friend whose child is severely allergic to peanuts and got suggestions from her. Getting up to speed with Aidan's food allergies was "a process," Amy recalls, but the doctors were very reassuring.

The staff has food allergy training, and everyone is made aware of his allergies including the other children. "I think the children like to be involved," says Amy.
