With the warm weather upon us, for many families, that usually means vacation, camp and extra time spent with friends and family. For us, that means we ship the kid off to Va for a few weeks to our parents.
But for many families like ours, the logistics of spending time away from home also means managing kids’ food allergies. Just because a kid has food allergies doesn’t mean that can’t have fun while they’re away from home; in fact, many organizations and establishments have found a way to safely navigate around kids’ food allergies, working together with families to ensure that everyone has fun!
I’m excited to once again take part in a conversation on TheMotherhood.com, and this time we’ll be discussing Navigating Food Allergies: At Camp, On Sleepovers and Playdates!
Allergies, in general, affects so many families, so I know this topic is something that many of you may find informative. And even if your family isn’t directly affected, since food allergies are so much more common now, having this sort of knowledge onhand certainly doesn’t hurt. So, please, join us today!
When: Tuesday, April 12, at 1 p.m. ET
Where: TheMotherhood – Join us!
What: The class is called Navigating Food Allergies: At Camp, on Sleepovers and Playdates. Join the experts to talk about ensuring your kids have fun and safe experiences in these environments away from home.
