"As a baby, I had severe allergies to milk and soy. At just a month old, my mom held me in the hospital, thinking her baby was dying. Fortunately, my doctors found a chemical formula I could tolerate, and I survived my first challenge with allergies.
Fast forward to 2016. I am still challenged by my dairy and soy allergies. It can be very difficult to find safe foods to eat, especially treats. We have several family friends with different allergies who share my struggle. This inspired me to come up with my own delicious recipes made with ingredients that are free from the 8 major allergens - wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish, and shellfish. I shared some of my creations with these friends, and they enjoyed them as much as I do. With their positive feedback, Renés Homemade Creations was born."
