Food Allergy Awareness Week: Sunbutter Craft

BlogHer Original Post

This week is Food Allergy Awareness Week. Unlike, say, Valentine's Day or the Fourth of July, this holiday (if I can call it that), which affects 15 million Americans, does not have many crafts associated with it.

My son Baxter is one of those 15 million.

Crafts help bring awareness to a holiday or event. I've decided to make it my mission to make more crafts related to food allergies. My little man Bax is the sunbutter to my jelly, and I wanted to make him a sign to show him that!

Sunbutter to My Jelly

Sunbutter is a peanut butter alternative that we started using when my son Baxter was diagnosed with a peanut allergy. I have come to love it as much as my old favorite. I have often seen goodies in the scrapbooking and crafty world with the cute saying: "You are the peanut butter to my jelly." This is my allergy-aware take on that idea.
