And you’re already exhausted! Between decorating, shopping, preparing the family holiday card and attending countless holiday parties, you are out of free time! And on top of that, you still have to make sure your allergy prone little one is safe and reaction free during a time where holiday treats are unavoidable.
The good news is, you have a lot of family time coming up. Your little ones will be on Christmas break, which is a perfect time to re-enforce allergy safety. You can’t always control other people, but you can teach your child how to avoid those pesky allergy danger zones.
Here are a few tips:
- When cooking your child’s allergy free meals, have them help! It’s a great way to teach them what foods they can and can not have while having fun.
- While running out to get those last minute presents, explain to your child why staying away from certain foods matters. You can’t be with your child every minute of every day, so it’s good to make sure they are fully aware of what they need to steer clear of.
- Prepare a few quick and easy holiday games to play with your little one. It will show them that they can have a great time during the holiday season, and any season for that matter, without focusing on food.
