Tips For Traveling With Food Allergies

One of the most difficult challenges related to food allergies is dealing with them while you travel. Let’s face it, part of enjoying life is taking a holiday now and then, but doing so with a child with food allergies requires some planning and preparation.

Here are a few tips we found;

Start planning early and research your intended desination.

Bring several copies of your action plan with you and if possible have them translated into your destination country’s language.

Research the food policies of various airlines.

Locate the hospital nearest to where you will be staying, just in case.

Pack extra medication in your carry on bag and bring non-perishable foods your child can eat.

Clean your child’s hands regularly on the flight and during the trip;

Pack a stack of reading books, crayons and paper (to keep them occupied:)
