Recent Meetings (Jan 9)
Thank you to Martin D. Fried, MD FAAP, a physician nutrition specialist, who spoke at our most recent meeting on Jan. 9.
Dr. Fried answered many varied questions from the group relating to nutrition, allergies and digestion. His advice included moderation is the key to all dietary habits; milk is not a necessary component to a healthy diet, nutrients in milk can be gotten from a variety of other foods; and one of the best ways to determine if a child is getting adequate nutrition is if he/she is gaining the proper amount weight.

The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) Walk for Food Allergy: Moving Toward A Cure
The First Monmouth County FAAN Walk will be held Sept. 7 at Pier Village, Long Branch.
The FAAN Walk for Food Allergy events, which have been held across the country since 2003, raise funds to support FAAN’s efforts in food allergy public awareness, advocacy, education, and research.
he FAAN Walk for Food Allergy is fun for the whole family. It provides participants a chance to spend time outside, get some exercise, socialize with members of the community, and also meet others who might be managing food allergies.
The FAAN Walk for Food Allergy is:
- Designed to raise money for FAAN's mission of public awareness, advocacy, education, and research
- Organized by volunteers
- Will be held in a beautiful site in Monmouth county along an approximate 2-mile route that will be able to accommodate strollers
- Additionally, some of the funds raised at this event will go back to the community for local education and awareness.
We are looking for volunteers to help make this walk day a huge success! If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
- We raised over $6,540 for The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network's
Walk for Food Allergy: Moving Toward A Cure on Oct. 14, 2007 in Ridgewood, NJ. Great job everyone!
