Food allergies affect more than 15 million people in the U.S. One of them is the brother of Jaime Gialloreto, Miss New Jersey, and she has made that her platform. Another is my 18-year-old son.  We both know how serious this condition can be.

Jaime wants to share the message that food allergies can be life-threatening, so it is important for all of us to know how to prevent a reaction and what to do if one occurs. I had the good fortune of chatting with this smart and poised young lady as she explains her platform: Don't Get Nutty: Food Allergy Awareness.
