Welcome to July!
To all the parents out there, give yourselves a pat on the back for making it to the school holidays (woohoo!). Now is the perfect time to create your own fun at home (by building blanket forts, of course) or escape the cold weather for a family trip.
When planning to go away, there is already a massive mental to-do list, now adding travelling with children who have allergies, it can feel like a daunting task. But! We have listed a few tips to help you prepare and plan out a safe and fun trip for the whole family.
Here are a few tips that can make your trip safer and more enjoyable:
Plan: Research your destination, available accommodation and allergy-friendly restaurants that will best suit your family's needs.
Notify airlines and hotels: Let them know about your child's allergies so they can make accommodations to ensure a safe and comfortable trip.
Pack ‘free from’ snacks: Bring safe snacks you know your child loves in case there are limited food options available.
Be prepared for emergencies: Carry all your child's medications with you at all times and have an action plan in case of an allergic reaction.
Have fun! You’ve done the planning, you are organised and now is the time to enjoy your holiday with your family.
We hope this advice was helpful. Enjoy the rest of the school holidays and safe travels!
