What is Your Halloween Strategy?

Around our house, with all of these food allergies, Halloween used to be the scariest holiday of the year. However, with proper preparation, it can actually be a great time for the family.

Back to School with Food Allergies

  Back to school can be a very scary time for parents of kids with food allergies. When I first sent my son off to Kindergarten, I worried for weeks on end. It took awhile but because I developed such an open relationship with the staff, I soon felt peace about it. I thought I would share with you a few things I've learned a long the way. First, meet with the teacher BEFORE school starts. Lay those ground rules and make sure everyone understands what needs to be done and how your … [Read more...]
