Yes! Yes!

  10. 10. KENTON DUTY ACTOR, SINGER & DANCER Kenton is a triple threat, he can act, he can sing and he can dance. But what threatens him are his allergies to chocolate, wheat and, as a child, dairy. He is a great role model for food-allergic children and does his part to contribute to the community. He recently joined forces with FAAN on Capitol Hill to encourage US Congress to support the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act.
  11. 11. HALLE BERRY ACTRESS The former Bond girl is allergic to shellfish, specifically shrimp.

Shellfish and Fish allergies are thought to currently affect over ½ million Canadians and 7 million Americans.
  12. 12. Former Pittsburgh Steelers halfback Jerome Bettis knows that the best defense is a good offense, which is why he advocates for Auvi-Q, The new epinephrine auto-injector that speaks to you, introduced in January of last year. ‘The Bus’ has recently teamed up with Food Network’s Robin Miller and Sanofi US to provide education about food allergies and information regarding preventative measures to avoid anaphylaxis.

  14. 14. A similar situation befell Joshua Jackson. The ‘Fringe’ star was hospitalized in 2011 following an allergic reaction to nuts. Peanuts get a lot of attention but besides the fact that they aren’t actually nuts (they are in fact a legume) tree nuts can be just as life- threatening in an allergic individual. JOSHUA JACKSON ACTOR Image:  Superb  Wallpapers  
  15. 15. BUSY PHILLIPS ACTRESS It’s a good thing for this Cougar Town co-star that the show’s main source of indulgence is wine and not soy milk. According to Living Without magazine, the former model is allergic to soy, and also has sensitivities to wheat and gluten. Image courtesy of

  18. 18. TOM POTI PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE Being from Massachusetts, the former Washington Capitals defenseman could’ve easily focused on baseball. Due to his allergies to peanuts and nuts, it’s a good thing he focused on hockey instead! Image:

  22. 22. ADRIAN PETERSON PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE The Minnesota Vikings’ star Running Back is used to making headlines for his outstanding efforts on the field, but he’s recently made some for his efforts in raising awareness about food allergies. He gave everyone a “pretty good scare” after a severe allergic reaction to seafood (seafood gumbo to be exact, his favorite food) in 2012. ‘All Day’ is a prime example of how you can excel and achieve greatness while living with food allergies.
  23. 23. Well, we aren’t sure if they have food allergies or not but I told ya’ we didn’t forget good ol’ mom and dad! Corny jokes aside, food allergy parents are some of the strongest, most organized people on the planet.

  26. 26. HOLLY ROBINSON PEETE ACTRESS This mama is no stranger to food allergies. All FOUR of her children have been diagnosed with them! She understands the need to be proactive and prepared and spoke to that and other things in her interview with POPSUGAR back in 2011. The article also touches on the sensitive issue of accomodation for food-allergic children. Holly points out that she has never expected other parents to accommodate her food-allergic children, but rather she always comes prepared with snacks and Epi-Pens® wherever she goes. Good work Ms. Peete! Image:

  32. 32. GWYNETH PALTROW ACTRESS The Iron Man 3 star came under fire last year for what people thought was an overly strict diet she was allegedly forcing upon her children.
