Making snacks for children with food allergies

Having a child with food allergies can be a challenge. Having a child with MULTIPLE food allergies can be daunting.

Meet 7-year-old Landon Stone and his mom Lenesha, founder of “Let’s Make Something.”

Together, the mom and son duo are learning. They’re educating… and they’re thriving.

This weekend, Landon and Lenesha will be doing a  cooking demo, showing other children how to make your own snacks. It will let kids know how easy it to make their own snacks and let them know they are not alone in having food allergies. Landon has always felt special being gluten free and we want other kids to know just how special they are! And that they aren’t limited with snack choices just because Gluten isn’t an option.

The Gluten-Free Food Allergy Fest is Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Expo Hall.  You can purchase tickets online at www.gffafest.com or at the door.  Over a hundred exhibitors will be showcasing their gluten-free and allergy friendly products with lectures and cooking demos all weekend.

Saturday & Sunday, State Fairgrounds, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

About Landon:

Landon is a 7 year old child with multiple allergies including: gluten, nuts, dairy, and eggs. Having healthy and easily prepared snacks hasn’t always been easy. But it has gotten easier as Landon has learned on his own to prepare his own snacks that are free of allergens. Being a single mom who works full time and is in school full time, it is very important for Landon to be aware of his allergies and the foods that could potentially harm him.
