Weekend Pick from Parenting in the Loop
Food allergies invaded our family about 8 years ago with my granddaughter breaking out in whole body hives. It was a very scary and life changing experience for her and for us.
Learning about food allergies is essential and it is an ongoing routine which includes scrutinizing food labels and monitoring your child’s environment on a daily basis
There have been milestones in my granddaughter’s awareness and self advocacy over the years.
Recently, I came across this wonderful summary and timeline of skills that can be life saving for your child with food allergies.
Weekends are a time when kids are out and about with families and friends…it is a break from work and school but not a break from allergies to food.
Even if you are not affected by these allergies yourself it might be helpful if you knew more about them so you could assist if a child or an adult around you has an allergic reaction.
Growing up with food allergies takes baby steps. Spokin has compiled 36 milestones for your food allergic child to help track your progress and theirs.
