5 Tips For Raising Kids
With Food Allergies
This topic is especially close to me because I was a kid with several severe food allergies. I was diagnosed at two months old with allergies to all of the common allergens, dairy, nuts, chocolate, seafood and more. I believe my mother did a great job raising me with these allergies because I have lived in 3 different countries, I obviously ate and I am alive. I did have a few scares and though in frequent (I can count the number on one hand), they left an indelible mark on me. So this post is for parents; here are 5 tips to help you to navigate food allergies with your child.
2. Help Your Kids Make Others Aware
My parents made a board that stated what I could and couldn't eat and gave it to the preschool. This allowed all the teachers to have a reference for my allergies. This bracelet is cute so that whoever is taking care of the child can just look at their wrist and see what they are allergic to.
