The ladies at my daughter's daycare really "get it" when it comes to her food allergies!

A couple events in the last few weeks, really made me feel confident about it:

1) We put a slice of Vegan Soy "Cheese" in her lunchbag. It really looks like regular cheese, and I forgot to tell them in the morning about it. When I picked up my daughter in the evening, they told me they didn't give it to her because they weren't sure if we had made a mistake! :) I wanted to hug them!!! They don't even trust us... and that's great!

2) They were doing crafts for Mother's Day and there was some paint involved. since they didn't have the paint's "ingredients", they found an alternative craft for my daughter (with tons of glitter that is now all over my house! But, hey, it's for a good cause) :)!! I've told them before to be aware that there was wheat in some glues, playdoh, and such, so it was nice to know that they really listened!

I just wanted to share this story with other parents to show that it's possible to find people who really "get it" to take care of our precious allergic children, and they must be praised and treasured! Education about allergies can go a long way! I know her daycare will never be 100% risk-free since her allergens are in the building, but I do feel confident that she's as safe as can be... away from me! :)

I think that it's great that they are so aware. That is a huge relief especially when the child is so young.

You've done a great job educating them. You might want tto make sure they know that they can call you to inquire if they have any questions. I hate to see a little one go without food if it isn't necessary.

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees
