Pop-up episode: Using inclusive language for food allergies
A mini popup episode for you!
MILK versus MYLK, what's the deal?
Amanda from the blog Everyday Allergen-Free joined Kortney to explore what spelling milk with an 'I' versus milk with a 'Y' means and how it can impact someone’s experience with that food.
This lead to a discussion about feeling left out when you have food allergies and whether getting an allergy-safe version of a classic food makes you feel included or different.
