SPOTLIGHT: Nom Yum & Free: Babies, Allergies & Nom Yummy Treats


Through her food-allergy awareness blog, Nom Yum & Free, my friend, Devin shares her very own recipes that both she and her allergy-stricken baby girl can enjoy with their family. 

Devin's love for treats goes way back to her 1st birthday...on record that is...

In each of her recipes, Devin shares her inspiration, allergy-friendly "free" ingredients, step by step instructions (and mistakes) and the "nom yum" result with mouth-watering pictures. One of my favorites is her Strawberry Cupcake with Raspberry-Lemon Champagne Buttercream Icing...


Looks good, tastes good and good for you!

Seriously...?!?!? And yes, it tastes even better than it looks. And the best part is, it is dye-free and allergy friendly. After eating one of these, I can understand why Devin's mantra is "Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake." 

In addition to sharing her YUMMY recipes, Devin also blogs about allergy-friendly products... Look for Nom Yuminations on her blog to learn more. She is always on the prowl for new treats for her babies, so please send her your recommedations via twitter @nomyumfree.

Devin & Family are walking to support the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN). FAAN provides food allergy awareness, advocacy, and education, and they support research for the 15 million Americans, including nearly 6 million children, with a potentially life-threatening food allergy. 

We will be following up with Devin and her family after the FAAN Walk. Please consider supporting this beautiful family and a worthy cause. 

Devin can be reached through her blog, Nom Yum & Free

Thank you for reading!

P.S. Although these O'BOTs were based on Devin's family, I am sad to say that they don't actually have a pet cow. However, Free will be making multiple appearances in a series of O'babybot books and games, along with Nom Yum and friends, Yobo, Opso, Mogo & Popo.
