Who am I ?
I studied psychology but work in the field of fundraising. Mother of two allergic children, I dedicate a lot of my free time to food allergies and their management.
This website is based on a brochure I wrote to answer the following question which has haunted me since the day my daughter had an allergic reaction to an omelet I had prepared with love: how can I make sense of all of this?
You are reading the answer to this question. I made this website for allergic children, to help them better understand their allergies and to live with them. This site is also for their parents, to help them cope better with these allergies: it is possible to live like everyone else. I also hope that this site will allow those who are not directly affected by allergies to better understand us; I have too often been told "Donít you think you're exaggerating"
Feel free to contact me!

I want to thank for their contributions: my brother for the design of this website, my children and my family for their patience and support, my friends and all the people who participated in the project. Without them, this project would never have been completed!
