Reading labels is super duper important for moms! You especially want to know what's inside that packaged food if your kid has allergies.
A FitPerez reader is looking for the best non-dairy milk available and wrote dietitian Lisa De Fazio for help, asking:
Which is the best non-dairy milk for you? There are so many different choices (almond, hemp, rice, soy, coconut) I want to make sure I am drinking the best one.
According to Lisa:
They all have their pros and cons, it depends on your allergies, tolerance, and dietary needs. Personally, I use almond milk. I love the flavor and I use the vanilla flavored almond milk in coffee, smoothies and cereal.
Some people are allergic to almond milk, some people want to avoid soy so they avoid soy milk. Coconut milk may be higher in fat, so some people avoid it. A diabetic who is counting their carbohydrates may avoid rice milk and go with a higher protein milk substitute. The bottom line is that it just depends on your individual needs and allergies. If you have no allergies and no medical issues, I recommend soy or almond milk.

Hollywood starlets aren't the only people who are taking on alternative diets to stay healthy.
Now, their children are
being forced inheriting the new "unusual eating habits" fad so that they can become even pickier eaters!
Kourtney Kardashian is one celeb mom who chooses to remove wheat, nuts, and meats from her 2-year-old son Mason's diet.
And it all started when Kourt realized that Mason was allergic to peanut butter and he began to break out in hives.
"Friday night Mason ate some peanut butter and had a little allergic reaction to it. He threw up within minutes of tasting it and got hives on his face. I called 911, and the fire department came immediately. They suggested that we take him to the hospital, so we did. He was in good spirits the whole time and didn’t even know anything was wrong. He even enjoyed riding in the ambulance. He's such a good boy!"
Aww, poor Masey! Glad he's okay now.
Other celeb mommas who are giving their children alternative diets include Alicia Silverstone who is vegan.
She speaks about giving her son Bear a plant-based diet:
"Bear was grown on vegan food, and we’ll continue nourishing him with a healthy diet. He'll be eating an organic, plant-based diet. I intend to take great care of his precious, new baby body, so I'm committed to giving him nothing but the purest and most healthy food possible. We want to keep his immune system strong so that he'll be super healthy, which is just one of the many reasons he'll eat vegan."
Hollywood tots are definitely eating a whole more different than what the average child is eating. Of course, children should be eating healthy, especially during their most formative years, but are some moms going too far??

It's fall and as the seasons change, they bring different allergens with them.
Check out the above video to get some useful tips from Dr. Patrick Mahaney on how to keep your pet happy and health as it gets colder and leaves continue to fall.
Allergies don't only affect humans.
Your pets can suffer from seasonal allergies just the same, and if they do, how about getting them a petcover?
Allergens can build up overtime and embed themselves into your pet’s favorite spots.
So Sure Fit petcovers has designed a special, and machine-washable, slipcover for your pets to rest on.
They come in different colors and range from about $39 to $49.
Not a bad idea.
