Help Pass FAAMA in 2009!  Baby Health Advice

When To Start Baby On Solids. »

Good news in the gluten-free world! Last week I read an article in the Wall Street Journal that General Mills Inc. is developing gluten-free foods, to meet the needs of consumers who increasingly are eliminating or reducing their gluten intake.According to the article, the company’s Betty Crocker brand is rolling out gluten-free mixes for cookies, brownies and cakes. The mixes are the first gluten-free offering from a major, mainstream brand in the cake-mix aisle.

Im hoping this move will encourage additional retailers to follow the lead of General Mills, providing consumers with a variety of gluten-free options.

In the mean time, let us know what you and your little ones think of the Betty Crocker baking mixes and other General Mills gluten-free products and if you know of any other companies entering the marketplace.

Help Pass FAAMA in 2009!The Food Allergy Awareness Network (FAAN) is working once again to push the Senate to enact the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management Act (FAAMA). FAAMA outlines voluntary national guidelines to help schools manage students affected by food allergy and anaphylaxis.

As some of you might already know, FAAMA was passed by the House in 2008, and earned support from 42 Senators. Unfortunately, FAAMA was not taken up by the Senate before it adjourned.

FAAN provides some great talking points for reaching out to your US Senators and US Representative and asking for their support as well as contact information. If youre interested in getting involved, check out FAANs Web site at http://bit.ly/19×8zk.
