Of course, it is summer...you and your children should go to the pool, have picnics and play in the sun! You just need to do these activities as food-conscience as you do all the others throughout the year.
Here are a few tips:
- Call ahead if you are attending an event – It can’t hurt! Find out if they are going to have an ingredient list available. If not, pack your child his/her own tasty summer snacks.
- Bring food substitutes – If you are going to be outside all day where safe food won’t be available, make sure to bring food allergy snacks or nutritionally complete drink boxes like E028 Splash.
- And as always, be prepared – make sure that Epipen is always close by.
