Traveling Simply with Life-Threatening Food Allergies: A Mom’s Perspective
I recently shared steps we take to travel with food allergies. From what we consider in the early stages of choosing a destination to what we include in our allergy kit, it’s a process that we’ve used and continue to build upon for our travels. We’ve created and used this list for RV trips across the US, weekend getaways, plane trips and visits to foreign countries. Our list evolves as our children grow and our adventures change, but one thing is certain-we always have our allergy kits and epinephrine with us.
As a simple living, food allergy mom, they are the perfect addition to our travel wardrobes. Adding this scarf to my collection has meant:
- Always having my children’s allergy kit and epinephrine with me and easily accessible
- Traveling light and hands free without a purse or backpack-so freeing!
- Staying warm on planes by using it as a blanket
- Having a stylish and versatile accessory to my everyday wardrobe
While being a food allergy mom is not something I chose, it is something I must diligently navigate every single day. It’s always exciting to find new resources and products to help us keep our travels safe and simple. As my children get older and I slowly shift the responsibility to them to stay safe and always have their allergy kits, it’s encouraging to know there are options to help make their lives simpler, safer and stylish!
