Navigating Food Allergies This Holiday Season_ How to Help Parents & Carers

My Child & Food Allergies at Family Gatherings

Mummy Confession: This is my first official holiday season as a mum of a child with known food allergies (and also being on an elimination diet myself of foods that he is allergic to). I’m not feeling very good with words at the moment, but I hope this gets across a little of the anxiety I’m feeling as this season’s festivities start rolling in as a mum to a child with food allergies.

Mummy Confession: I’ve sometimes forgotten to do things before I leave the house, like take out the trash, or hang the laundry, but these are things you simply cannot do when leaving on holidays. As we prepare to go on holidays for a short while, there are some things we need to remember, so I figured I would compile a list and share it here as well. Hopefully it will help you remember what to do when you go for a trip, whether it be a day or months at a time! Pin it for later, or share with someone you Read More

Road Trip (With Kids)! What to Bring Along

Mummy Confession: I don’t mind hours in the car on the road. However, a road trip with kids is a bit more complicated and may prove a bit challenging! As I mentioned before, we are taking our first family trip to the snow soon! I have compiled another list of things to bring on the road! Not only for the drive, but what to have close at hand, and just in the car, when traveling with kids!
