December 31st, 2007 was the day I wrote my first blog for 'smartallergy'. It has been a wonderful 4 years and I decided it was time to evaluate what entries drew the most readers.
I was pleasantly surprised at the true variety which made it to my ALL-TIME top ten list.
You will find: non-food products, food-products, a recipe and two guest blogger entries.
Although my main focus has been highlighting product ideas for those managing egg, milk and nut allergies, you will find product ideas available for everyone, and TWO inspirational blogs from young women living their life with life-threatening food allergies!
