Tip of the Day: How to Prepare Your Child Who Has Severe Food Allergies

How do you prepare your child to handle people who challenge the validity of their food allergies?
Believe it or not parents, friends, and even Doctor's and nurses have been known to question and challenge the validity of Nicolle's severe food allergies.
My best advice is to talk to your child and make sure he or she understands as much about his or her allergies as possible; what are his or her allergies, what happens if he or she eats or comes in contact with the food he or she is allergic to, and what does he or she need to do in case of an allergic reaction? Your child should also know how to call an ambulance in case of an emergency. It is also a very good idea to order and purchase a medic alert bracelet for your son or daughter.
Having all of this knowledge and being prepared will help your child when responding to questions from others.

Enjoy another 'Tip of the Day' tomorrow.
