We all want a safe and inclusive classroom for our food allergy kiddos. Find out 3 mistakes I made when talking to schools about food allergies and how to avoid them so you and your kiddo have a better school year.
Hannah is 5 years old. She’s a joyful kid who likes school, especially playing at recess and special math or gym games. Today, Hannah notices that her best friend, Aria’s mom brought in cupcakes for Aria’s birthday. Hannah noticed that Aria loves the same kind of cupcakes as she does, which she knows is one more reason why they are best friends. She notices her favourite Disney character on top of each perfectly decorated light pink and blue cupcake topped with sprinkles. How she’s looking forward to the creamy, sweet frosting. She goes through her day excited for the special treat. Only when the time comes, Hannah isn’t allowed to eat the cupcake.
