This event is near and dear to Raising Madison‘s heart, as Milena had a severe milk allergy (that she thankfully outgrew last year!), and Liam has a severe dairy intolerance/allergy and is sensitive to eggs (and his mom Mallory is very allergic to both).
We believe it’s important for everyone to become more knowledgeable about food allergies; especially what you can do to keep your kids’ friends (and their parents) feel safe and included during playdates and also when you’re out in public with food.
I often shared this video with friends and family when Milena had her allergy: 10 Things Children With Food Allergies Want You To Know (allergymoms.com)
