Food Allergy Action Plan

For kids with food allergies, it's a good idea to have an action plan in place.  Even if you've verbally gone over one with a caregiver--I can't tell you how many times I've had to remind my own mother (who is very supportive with my son's issues) of what to do or what foods to avoid.  Here's a good place to start:  (thanks to another food allergy mom who has this listed on her blog!)

I would also suggest keeping a list of allergic foods and benedryl on hand.  I have made an emergency pack from a plastic pencil holder kit that has benedryl, epipens, an inhaler (albuterol), and a list of meds along with doctor information. I taped the epi pen instructions to the inside lid so they can be immediately located--hopefully it's never needed, but always be prepared!


  1. I saw you had Cera've listed as a lotion you use. Love it. Just recently discovered Egyptian it more. Have ya'll tried it?

  2. Even more? That's saying a lot. No I haven't heard of it but will look for it. Thanks for the tip!
