This is How I Feel (As a Food Allergy Parent)

By -

On my personal blog, I have a series called This is How I Feel, where I use GIFs to illustrate my feelings. (Obviously, I’m an adult. Ahem ahem.) Bringing it here, food-allergy style.


The first time reading an ingredient label after an allergy diagnosis.



“You can totally heal your kid’s peanut allergy with essential oils.”

when someone says


When blister packs of Target-brand Benadryl are on sale.



My first time eating vegan, gluten-free, nut-free bread.



Finding a new brand of allergen-free cookies that doesn’t taste like cardboard.

If Scratch or Sniff founder/editor Roo Ciambriello could list all of her favorite things, they'd include her sweet little family, food trucks, and every AMA Snoop Dogg has done on Reddit. Roo is a copywriter out of New Haven, Connecticut, and loves writing fun stories on the backs of potato chip bags and cereal boxes in Whole Foods, Target, Nordstrom, Kroger, y mucho mas. Roo creates voices for brands, ghostwrites for celebrities, writes a personal website, and is (much to the chagrin of those around her) pretty active on Twitter. You can also find her providing commentary on advertising/branding at Adweek and eating fajitas on deadline days.
