He has a more sophisticated uhm palette than
most kids his age. We cook at home a lot more. We’re much more aware of what goes into my

come from your house. I think it’s made him more empathetic to other people. I think it’s
made him more sensitive and more mature. They see things differently and in a way I’m kind
of glad they don’t see allergies, they don’t see medical things as something to be afraid
of as anything interesting. It’s just “oh, that’s how it is”. And I think food allergies
is just helping him to grow into a better person and to not judge people if they do
have a difference.
