  13. RT @socialwebcafe: During holiday season #SocialCafe is "giving back" and chatting abt gift ideas.. today... dietary safety packs
  14. Q1 Do you or anyone you know of allergies or special diet needs? #SocialCafe
  15. My 2 nephews have a life-threatening PA. I helped the oldest during his 1st & thankfully only reaction. #socialcafe
  16. anyone make treats with sun butter? i made "buckeyes" with it. yum #socialcafe
  17. @socialwebcafe Q1. I have a few allergies and so do some of my family members #socialcafe
  18. @PlateItSafe Those are cute! Sure better than the ordinary ones. I think that is really good for kids, to make it bling. #SocialCafe
  19. @stratton1901 I love sun butter, but I've never tried to make buckeyes with it. Do you just do a straight substitution? #socialcafe
  20. @PeanutFreeZone So you had the inspiration for PeanutFreeZone. Is that what started it for you? Glad they are ok! #SocialCafe
  21. @stratton1901 sun butter is great! i also use TJ's brand cashew or macadamia butters as I (Meredith) am ok with tree nuts. #socialcafe
  22. A1 I know of people who have allergies to milk and it is tricky to prepare meals. #SocialCafe
  23. @natfield84 It seems like allergies weren't talked about as much. I'm glad that we have so many creative ways to enjoy food now #SocialCafe
  24. @socialwebcafe yes, that's why we started it (my sis is a graphic designer and started making the items to increase safety) #socialcafe
  25. @socialwebcafe totally agree - we're so creative today. when i was a kid things were so limited! i am grateful... #socialcafe
  26. @socialwebcafe Me too! Some things are still difficult though - especially eating out #socialcafe
  27. We love SunButter too! @natfield84 be sure to check out our pinterest, we have recipes w/ sun butter #socialcafe
  28. always always always communicate with servers, chefs, managers. my mom did and i bet you all do too! we can never be TOO safe! #socialcafe

  30. RT @CarlaWynn2012: #SocialCafe Come chat with us about allergies and how to have a Peanut Free Holiday! @amazondeals
  31. RT @CarlaWynn2012: #socialcafe I have an 8 month old granddaughter and wonder how peanut butter could cause a reaction.
  32. @PlateItSafe "No sugar" meant, literally "no sugar." Grape KoolAid tastes better with sweetener of some kind ;) #SocialCafe
  33. Q1 I still have some allergies, but not as bad as when I was a kid. There was a laundry list of things I couldn't eat... #socialcafe
  34. Q1 ... and sugar was one of them. Can you imagine being a kid at a party and not being able to eat #SUGAR! :o( #socialcafe
  35. Q2 What resources do you use to accommodate dietary needs? Where do you shop? #SocialCafe
  36. @natfield84 I had a case where I insisted "no alcohol" and the establishment gave me alcohol anyway. Supposed classy place.. #SocialCafe
  37. @jordanteater You must be much happier now, with a shorter laundry list of things you can't eat ;) #SocialCafe
  38. RT @jordanteater: Q1 & sugar was one of them. Can you imagine being a kid at a party and not being able to eat #SUGAR! :o( #socialcafe
  39. i have gotten to the point i feed my kids b4 we go somewhere. its just not worth the risk. better safe than sorry #socialcafe
  40. No one knows why children are getting these allergies so much now, but the good news is awareness is increasing #socialcafe
  41. My deal these days is gluten free.. I can say it, and they will still add the croutons or put bread on my plate. #socialcafe
  42. @marilola33 Does that help you feel healthier, overall? I've been thinking of doing that.. #SocialCafe
  43. A2 Grocery store, but need to knowledgeable of what works and what is dangerous to that person. #SocialCafe
  44. RT @PeanutFreeZone: Noone knows why children are getting these allergies so much, but the good news is awareness is increasing #socialcafe
  45. RT @PeanutFreeZone: No 1 knows why children r getting these allergies so much now, but the good news is awareness is increasing #SocialCafe
  46. @socialwebcafe Q2 I like specialty cookbooks that provide recipes without common allergens #socialcafe
  47. @sunraysheryl I wonder if it is just that they don't "get it." Seems like people understand "sugar free" but not gluten or milk #SocialCafe
  48. That would have been hard as a kid jordanteater, I just recently had to give up sugar and it was hard as an adult. #socialcafe
  49. RT @stratton1901: i have gotten to th point i feed my kids b4 we go somewhere. its just not worth th risk. better safe thn sorry #socialcafe
  50. @socialwebcafe Yes def I feel better I don't know if it really works but I don't want bad prods in my body !! #SocialCafe
  51. Stay tuned for topic announcement about another holiday gift idea next week… #SocialCafe
  52. @socialwebcafe Much happier, now everything in moderation and I'm fine. Others have it much worse. #socialcafe
  53. @socialwebcafe A lot of people don't realize what gluten is, a part of wheat, which is a common ingredient. #socialcafe
  54. It makes me sad to hear about children that can participate in "parties" with food because of something that's not their fault #socialcafe
  55. RT @natfield84: @socialwebcafe Q2 I like specialty cookbooks that provide recipes without common allergens #socialcafe
  56. RT @socialwebcafe: Stay tuned for topic announcement about another holiday gift idea next week… #SocialCafe
  57. Q1 my wife is very anemic so she has to eat alot of dark green veggies #SocialCafe
  58. People are getting much more savvy about allergies, and more recently gluten. I've seen much more available in stores, etc. #socialcafe
  59. @SousaSurveys I've heard that eating too much spinach can have adverse effects on one's iron levels. #socialcafe
  60. @sunraysheryl Spinach? Really? Wow - you'd have to limit the Popeye cartoons, as well :) #SocialCafe
  61. @PlateItSafe Very true. It helps when kids can connect with other kids with the same allergies, or even other allergies. #SocialCafe
  62. @socialwebcafe i deleted b/c it may have read a insensitive - glad you got my point. i was lonely as a peanut-allergic as a kid! #socialcafe
  63. Me too..! I appreciate the benefits of more organic! RT @marilola33: @socialwebcafe Q2 I eat more organic food #socialcafe
  64. RT @jordanteater: Q1 I still have some allergies, but not as bad as when I was a kid. A laundry list of things I couldnt eat... #socialcafe
  65. Yes, It's great to find some type of support group for parents/playgroup for kids. Faan, nonutsmoms, can help find groups #socialcafe
  66. @PlateItSafe I hear ya! My son had a girlfriend allergic to milk and dairy and I tried to be sensitive to her needs in prep. #SocialCafe
  67. Q3 Any special recipes that you use? Please share links! #SocialCafe
  68. @PeanutFreeZone Are these web sites? Sounds great! I especially like how they came up with nonutsmoms :) #SocialCafe
  69. Q2 I generally try 2 find whole foods, or things w/ less additives. #TraderJoes , #PCCNaturalMarkets & #WholeFoods r some faves. #socialcafe
  70. @sunraysheryl I ws th mom searching which foods were th true culprits of th stomach ache back in those days.. A real sleuth job! #socialcafe
  71. I feel so much better since avoiding packaged/processed foods and shopping more at whole foods @jordanteater #socialcafe
  72. allergy-friendly cookie recipe - but beware of the coconut suggestion and note at the bottom  http://bit.ly/TIoFX3  #socialcafe

  74. RT @PlateItSafe: allergy-friendly cookie recipe - but beware of the coconut suggestion and note at bottom  http://bit.ly/TIoFX3  #SocialCafe
  75. @socialwebcafe Q3 I use a lot of vegan recipes. They're from cookbooks though, so no links. #socialcafe
  76. RT @jordanteater I ws th mom searchng whch foods wre th true culprits of th stomach ache back in those days.. A real sleuth job! #socialcafe
  77. @PeanutFreeZone If you had to asses budget, is it like a 25% increase in cost? Of course, no price tag on good health! #SocialCafe
  78. @PeanutFreeZone I really should work harder at cleaning up my eating habits. I'm sure I'd feel much better as everyone says... #socialcafe
  79. @socialwebcafe once you buy the basics, it's really not too bad. Plus you feel fuller longer! #socialcafe
  80. @jordanteater it's hard, I have a hard time giving up the coffee. maybe someday.... #socialcafe
  81. @PeanutFreeZone ...it's just so hard 2 say goodbye 2 so many comfort foods. I'm lucky my allergies r so mild, but then again... #socialcafe

  83. A3 Another gluten-free aid.. "How to Convert Family Recipes to be Gluten Free" from @AngEngland  http://ht.ly/fR6zp #SoSocialCafe
  84. @jordanteater bread and chocolate have been the worst for me, but now it's much easier. Not as much drooling anymore... #socialcafe
  85. Q4 What are you looking for, to help you with dietary ideas for allergies, medical, or good health? #SocialCafe

  90. RT @PeanutFreeZone: @jordanteater its hard, I have a hard time giving up the coffee. maybe someday.... #socialcafe
  91. Q4 Aside from obvious signs like tummy trouble and allergy testing at the docs, r there any other ways 2 spot allergies in kids. #socialcafe
  92. @jordanteater One life threatening allergy is 1 thing, but if a bazillion mild 2 mod, it's still cumulative in terms of symptoms #socialcafe
  93. @jordanteater Good question, symptoms can show up as rash, trouble breathing, fatigue. Challenge testing can be helpful. #socialcafe
  94. @jordanteater FAAN has good info on the symptoms of allergies. Minor reactions can be rashes, itchy throat, etc #socialcafe
