Quick Tip
Buy fresh or frozen, not canned, foods. Bisphenol-A (BPA), used to line most cans, is a chemical associated with cancer, reproductive and nervous system disorders, and even depression in young girls. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups, but it's still widely used in canned foods. Ban the can unless it's marked "BPA-Free."

Voices For Change

“I was stunned at how prevalent food allergies had become in the last ten years and how little information there really was about it. I thought, it’s tough enough to protect my child in my own home; how will I protect her when she’s old enough to be at school? Or at friends’ houses?”

Robyn O’Brien, Founder of Allergy Kids
