Severe food allergies & dietary restrictions are more common than one might think and they can make those suffering from them feel very alienated when it comes to food.

Food is a part of so much of what we do, communally: parties, birthdays, sleepovers, school events, etc. It’s important to make food inclusive.

Brooke Navarro the Co-Founder & CEO, of Without A Trace Foods joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom with how common severe food allergies are & the alienating effects they bring.

She also shared tips for parents raising children with severe food allergies and her own personal journey that she calls “A Day in the Life: How My Lifelong Battle Against Food Allergies Inspired My Startup”.

Bloom airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
