My lovely Alan ... and his family
He has learnt and mastered our safe food prep and cooking, it has taken 7 years... life is good 😊
My daughters french trip was cancelled due to her allergies... so we had fun together instead
My daughter’s friends mom had gotten something separate, that she knew did not have peanuts, since shop said that they could not gaurantee all treats were peanut free. Thought this was very touching gesture, even though my daughter was oblivious to it!
My friends do and co workers do more than my own parents .So that makes it hard
@A MyFoodAllergyTeam Member i would've cried as well. Yes a girlfriend calls me before i come to her event to set up the menu and include something i can eat. ♡that - she is awesome. A few of my cousins have started asking if whats on their event menu is safe for me. Baby steps and i will take it all day.
i have been very lucky over the years. i did a lot of scouting and the other leaders made a point off organizing the food etc around both myself and several of the kids who also had food allergies...
and friends were also really good...
I even had a friend inform me her husband had changed hi usual deodorant to a roll on with no chemicals etc. so that it didnt cause me any problems whilst we were doing camps etc... an amazing guy and his wife also one of my friends is also a very understanding and caring wife...
Yes. We went to a gathering with a church group in our new area. The girl who made rolls also made gf rolls for me. Almost made me have tears. They were the most wonderful rolls too.
Yes, my family and close friends always ask what I am able to eat as well allergies to enjoy in the gatherings.
Sometimes yes and alot of times no!
I found that preparing food and snacks in advance makes it easier to find a sitter. I make dinner in advance for the sitter and daughter so that I don't have to worry. I also make it clear that no food can be brought into the house.
