Among the peeps who read my blog are a handful of moms of food allergy kids, two daycare providers, a children’s minister and a teacher, most of whom have been touched by food allergies and have shared their experiences with me. So this post is dedicated to that group who may be interested in planning ahead for Food Allergy Awareness week.
The awareness week gives me a good reason to be a little more formal in my efforts to teach the children at my children’s daycare (and hopefully their parents) about food allergies. It’s something that affects all of the children there as they each take precautions to keep Avery safe (if you are new to my blog, Avery has life-threatening food allergies to peanuts/nuts, eggs, dairy and soy). There is another child at daycare with food allergies, so it is a great topic for everyone to learn more about. I asked our daycare provider if it were okay for me to provide the curriculum for a day next week on food allergies and she said yes.
Here is a list of what I’m providing, geared towards the preschool crowd. Many of these resources are free downloads online. Some we already own or I purchased in advance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Special safe treats, such as cookies or cupcakes.

 

You can find more of my food allergy posts, tips & recipes on my Food Allergy page. I’d also love to connect with you on my Marketing Mama facebook page and twitter. This post, and all posts on this blog, are written from my experiences as a parent of a child with food allergies. I am not a medical expert and encourage you to consult with a doctor on your personal medical situation.

    Wow, I am impressed with your efforts! I am not doing anything at the preschool this year. I thought I would wait till elementary school, next year.

    I did decide to do one thing–I am collaborating with Ruth at http://www.bestallergysites.com to host a Food Allergy Twitter Party to cap off Food Allergy Awareness Week, on May 15, at 12 noon and 10:30 pm Eastern time. The hashtag is #foodallergy. I can explain how Twitter parties “work”, if anyone is wondering.

    Nice. I'm passing this on to friends.
