Food Allergy Counseling: Allergies Don’t Need To Stop You, Kyle Dine

Me and Kyle Dine in Central Park

Colleague, friend and fellow adult with food allergies, Kyle Dine, is an allergy educator and musician. He works with Anaphylaxis Canada and he tours the United States singing to school assemblies, helping children, with and without food allergies, learn how to be better advocates for their health. You can book him for your school hereYou can also read his blog post about our fun day here

I am a sponsor of his latest tour,  Let’s Go Nuts. As part of my sponsorship package we decided to do a video together about food allergy awareness. Our song is: "Allergies Don’t Need To Stop You". Which is totes true. We are living embodiments.

This is some classic Kyle Dine singing with yours truly, Allergic Girl

Feel free to like it, share it and sing it with your kids.

Allergies Don’t Need To Stop You
 © Kyle Dine & Sloane Miller

I'm an Allergy girl

And I'm an Allergy Guy
I can do almost anything
And I'm willing to try

I can jog in Central Park

I can play sports and the guitar
So we have a couple allergies
Doesn't mean we can't go far.

I can eat safely at a restaurant
I'll make the reservation, what food do you want?
I can climb a mountain, be on top of the world!
I can make new friends  
You’ve got one in this girl!

I'm an Allergy girl
And I'm an Allergy Guy
I can cook nearly anything
And I'm still... willing to try!

I can live in the big city
I can live in the countryside
Wherever we'll be, allergy free
Is possible for you and I

I can read a label like I'm reading a book
But you gotta double check, here I'll give it a look
I can draw, paint, build, camp, dance [and sing
It's cool to know we can do anything

I'm an allergy girl
And I'm an allergy guy
And whether you're young or old
Whether you have many or few
Allergies, don't need to stop you!

Or me, or you, or him or her, or any of you!

Thank you, Kyle, for a wonderful afternoon of laughter and song!
