DID YOU KNOW?
EGGIE gives us the sunny side (up!) of the egg allergy!
Hello there! I heard you have an egg allergy or want to know more about it. Well, I scrambled to get here after my shift at the AllerTown Diner, but it wasn’t over easy. Get it?! Heehee! You’ll have to excuse me - I love to CRACK a joke! :)
Getting down to business now, my name is Eggie, and I’m here to tell kids with allergies all about eggs. If you ask me, having an egg allergy isn’t all that bad. Sure, it can make someone pretty itchy since an egg allergy mostly affects the skin, but if you read your labels and ask questions about your food, you can live on the sunny side. For example, you may be one of the lucky ones who can eat eggs if they’re baked in something, like cakes – yummmm. And if not, your mom or dad may be able to use apple sauce instead. Not a bad deal, right?
Of course, there’s a lot more to an egg allergy, and our friends at AllerMates have created a bunch of cool stuff to help you learn to be safe AND have fun. So kick back, check out the links above and come back as often as you’d like.
Now we're cookin!
