Well…school is officially back in session for our crew…and many of you are already, or soon will be, following suit as well.
And I know, based on the emails and calls I have been getting, and my own initial feelings this year, that this is the time that parents of children with food allergies start to have mini panic attacks.
So many questions. So many things to worry about.
What will I do about all of those food centered activities?
How can I make sure that my child is not exposed to another child’s food?
What can I do to make sure the teachers and administrators are totally aware?
How can I make sure they are equipped to handle a reaction?
These are just a few thoughts that have run through my head over the years, and definitely what many of you have been emailing me about.
