I am so glad that you want to know who we are! My name is Tanisha Foster Health Educator and Founder of Chop Friendly. As an educator in a school setting, I work with children and often see challenges they face emotionally and socially. I sought out to address and meet the needs of allergy kids by providing educational resources and tools to them and caregivers. This is a personal journey of mine, as my son “Chop” was diagnosed with several life-threatening food allergies when he was only a year old. Things were tough initially since we were not sure what foods we could safely offer him. Thankfully, I was able to put my health education and research experience into practice. Now, my husband Brandon, our daughter Journey, Chop and myself, advocate for many families by providing awareness and resources to live a healthy life beyond the scope of limitations with food allergies.
Hi! My name is Carrington, but you can call me Chop! I love superheroes, cooking and trying new foods with my family. When I grow up, I want to be a chef and own a Pizza restaurant. My mommy teaches me how to be safe with my food allergies and makes lots of fun safe foods for me to share with my sister Journey who is my best friend. I am allergic to wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, all nuts, seafood, and sesame. Mommy makes sure that I can eat as many things as I want by using safer ingredients for me. I get to enjoy food just like everybody else and that makes me very happy.
