Netflix Rotten Review The Peanut Problem by SosiSafe

Netflix Rotten Review: The Peanut Problem Rotten Season 1: Episode 2 The Peanut Problem A Netflix Original Documentary Series “Something in our world is changing. Our bodies are rejecting the foods we eat and even the experts don’t really know why.” For 47 minutes I sat on the edge of my couch, not from excitement but as an apprehensive Allergy Mom. With each changing scene in the recently released Netflix Original Documentary Series, “Rotten”, the imagery, stories and scientific evidence had my emotions teetering between annoyed and sad, happy and hopeful. In Season 1: Episode 2, “The Peanut Problem”, we …

Homemade Coloured Rice Recipe

By Sosi's Mom | November 7, 2018 | 2 Comments

This coloured rice recipe is so easy to make and fun for you and your kidlets! We were over playing at our friends house this past weekend and this super mom had a very brightly coloured rice sensory bin! I thought it would be a fun idea to try during these rainy days. Let me tell you, my kids loved it! It was definitely a messy activity but the EzPz mat with it’s edge helped keep some on the table, and I mean some – ha! Our post contains affiliate links for the EzPz mat, if you click it and …

Homemade Play-Dough Recipe

Peanut Free Playdough

We love a fun rainy day activity! This play-dough recipe is allergy friendly, contains 5 ingredients, and only takes 10 minutes of your time.  We often use natural food colouring options such as turmeric, spinach, and frozen blueberries instead of food colouring. I haven’t perfected this enough to share, sometimes the dough turns out too crunchy so instead I’ll share our favourite food colouring recipe instead. Our post contains affiliate links for the EzPz mat, if you click it and purchase, I receive a % of the purchase, it does not increase the price for you. Thank you!  We also …

Teal Pumpkin Project 2018 Teal Pumpkin Quote by SosiSafe

To a child with food allergies, a teal pumpkin is a symbol of inclusion, empathy and of course fun! -SosiSafe When a community comes together to accommodate a child’s food allergies, it helps an entire family feel included. For an Allergy Mom, the teal pumpkin project brings a sigh of relief that our kidlet can participate in the thrill of the trick or treat, if even for only a few houses. Most social events have some element of food intertwined within their expectations, with Halloween being no exception. And just to be clear, it is not expected for a teal …

Hype Food Co. (Food Allergy Friendly) Restaurant Review

By Sosi's Mom | September 22, 2018 | 1 Comment
An honest review of our experience at the Food Allergy Friendly Toronto restaurant -Hype Food Co. This restaurant caters to food allergy families, vegans, and anyone with a tooth for sweets! We highly recommend this family friendly - allergy safe Toronto based restaurant.

We had never been out to dinner as a family. Not once, in almost 4 years. We preferred to keep Sosi safe and just eat at home or at our trusted friends’ and families houses. That is, until we heard the great news about the new food allergy friendly restaurant in Toronto, Hype Food Co. Hype Food Co., had a cool, family friendly vibe as soon as we walked in. Sunlight cascaded in through large street-side windows and I immediately appreciated the cleanliness of the space and the homemade smell that wafted toward us as we got closer to the food counter. …

What is Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) in Canada

Oral Immunotherapy Canada OIT SosiSafe

08-18 The receptionist is cheery and there is a bustle of academic activity that makes me feel like we are in the right place. The waiting room has a quaint, clinical feeling to it. Gray walls, the colour of a deep slate clash with the bright floor-mat. There are books, toys, and a really old play-phone all sprawled onto the floor. The pattern of the toys leads me to believe that they were each left immediately when the child, who selected them, was summoned to the outlying rooms. This waiting room is really quiet, considering the amount of people in …

Healthy Popsicle Recipe Easy Toddler Popsicle Chocolate Avocado Popsicle

These Healthier Avocado Popsicles are fruity and chocolatey. That’s right! The avocado is totally a fruit. A berry to be precise, the things the internet teaches us eh? Quick Recipe The dark chocolate almond milk paired with the creamy avocado makes for a deliciously chocolate treat! We also like adding the avocado because it helps to increase the calorie and healthy fat intake for the day. It should be noted that I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post. I am a ‘tell it how it is,’ kind of person, so the reviews and links are for …
