All three of our children have allergies and have suffered serious reactions which led to emergency room visits. Unlike when we were kids, there is a huge need to keep kids with food allergies safe. I don’t know if there “is something in the water” or what. But food allergies are more common today.
A Playbook to help you
I recently had the opportunity to interview Super Bowl Champion, Jerome Bettis, about how he lives with a severe allergy. Jerome has an awesome resource, “Severe Allergy & Anaphylaxis Playbook“, he created to help others who suffer as well.
My kids are allergic to everything from nuts, to grass, to ibuprofen, to mosquito bites. Yes, my kids have reactions when they get bitten by a mosquito. So, as Spring ends and be get ready for Summer, it is a great time to discuss how to keep kids safe with allergies.
