Allergy-friendly recipe: Vanilla Rice Milk Ice Cream Sandwiches

ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) -- It’s Food Allergy Awareness Week.

Food allergy is a serious medical condition affecting up to 15 million people in the United States, including one and 13 children – that’s according Food Allergy Research and Education – known as FARE.

A mother-daughter-duo from Northeast Wisconsin is working to raise awareness about the issue.

Kara Schneider and her daughter Adel joined FOX 11's Emily Deem on Good Day Wisconsin to talk more about food allergies, and to share a food allergy-friendly recipe.

Food Allergy Awareness Week runs until Saturday, May 20th.

Kara and Adel also shared an allergy-friendly recipe that will be perfect for summer.
