Parenting a child with food allergies is a lot of work. In addition to the time and money challenges you are faced with as you work to get safe food on the table, you need to think about your children’s safety while they are away from home, especially when they are away from you.
In addition to their safety, let’s not forget the importance of your kids' health, including social, emotional, and mental health as well as physical development. Raising strong, confident children is hard enough with the normal bullying that goes on between kids. Add in special circumstances like food allergies, and the issues compound.
At Allergy Cookie, we strive to provide you with everything you need to know from teaching your children to be safe, working with schools and other organizations to create safe environments for your food allergic children, and tips for raising happy, healthy, confident kids despite food allergies.
