I was wondering if we could create (or if there already was) a section where we could post strategies we have heard of or used to teach our kids about their allergy? Maybe for different age groups?

For example:

-Preschool/ Kindergarten:
-Cut out pictures of foods that contain allergen (eg. milk, cheese, etc. for a dairy allergy) and create a book, so the child can identify foods that they are allergic to

Grade one and up - any fun games? that teach child to read a food label, learning the words to watch for

These would be really handy to have, I'm sure there is a wealth of tips or ways to educate kids in different stages!

I'm afraid this forum is peppered with tips. Each age form infant to adult onset; from finding a daycare to starting University to handeling business lunches. I'm afraid the list might be too long.

Each time a problem is presented you can be sure that someone else here has been there. The members on this forum really rise to the ocasion with suggestions.

If there is a particular issue you have you can use the search engine to look for posts dealing with that issue. I find it helpful to read about issues and creative processes to resolve them.

Why don't you check out several article in the Alergic Living archives?
Click the big purple circle inthetop left corner and go to the heading "Archives".
There are many great full length articles on dealing with food allergies from first diagnosis to school and beyond.

This forum is full of gems on allergy management, that's for sure!

I am looking for creative ways to teach your child about their allergy, depending upon their age. Things like:

-Creative ways of teaching (for example) how the body reacts to different ages
-What age you should introduce (different) information, and in creative formats the children can really grasp
-Games to use while teaching child about reading own food labels
-Ideas on how to show younger children what they can't eat, and what they can
-Ideas on showing a child what we do to keep them safe on a daily basis without overwhelming them
-How to help your teen talk to their friends, without being involved
-Things the kids can say/ do to disuade bullying, without being confrontational
