I saw part of this program today. It was pretty good. I plan on recording it Friday. It would definitely be a great introduction for people who don't really know about food allergies. Cindy

My DD totally enjoyed watching this program. She is 8 and none of it scared her. She really liked that it was not a cartoon, rather, real people just like her.

Nothing new for me but great to watch with her.

I saw it, taped it and loved it. I thought it did a great job of explaining a Food Allergy to someone who might not be that familiar with it. I am definitely going to send it to school with my son. I am going to write to Food Network and ask if they would consider distributing it to schools to educate teachers, parents, etc. on the matter. I think we all should write so they see how much it is needed. What do you all think?

I talked to the Food Network today. They do not own the show it is an Al Roker production. They urged me to contact Al Roker through his website.

The Food Network said that their programming is set through the end of December but that they've gotten a lot of calls and emails about this show.

I think we should all write or call. Perhaps they'll put it on again and/or make it available to those who want to use it.
