Many of you have been asking how I’m feeling about my little one with food allergies starting school in the fall. Of course it’s a really big deal and I’ve been spending quite a bit of time preparing. I actually started planning last winter by researching schools in my area to find one I felt would be the most safe and inclusive for my daughter’s severe food allergies.
I’ve found that even though the laws are the same from school to school, the policies and practices vary greatly. I was thrilled to find a school near me that will be a great fit for us.
The nice folks at Children’s Hospital and Clinics recently interviewed me on my experiences getting ready to start her in school. They published this story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune: BACK TO SCHOOL: How to prepare when your child has a food allergy.
Please read it to learn more about our experiences and feel free to share your own experiences in the comments of this post.
You can find more 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 or a nutritionist.
