My 14 year old son will be travelling to Quebec City with his school at the end of the month. Itls his first trip without one of us along. The travel company ensures that all breakfasts and dinners will be peanut/tree nut free. He will be in charge of buying his own lunches - which is where I am stressing out!!

Does anyone know if there is a McDonalds in Quebec City? What about a St. Hubert? Are there any fast food places in Quebec City that he can eat at?

thanks!!

boys; mom

My teenage daughter went to Montreal and Quebec City last year on a school trip. There were students with peanut and tree nut allergies. They mostly ate lunch at Subway. She had a written card in English and French about her allergies but 98% of people spoke English and didn't want them to speak in French.

There was one dinner that she couldn't eat (SugarShack) so she had a microwave meal (Uncle Ben's Mexican one) when she returned to the hotel. Most of the hotels couldn't guarantee safe breakfasts so she ate the packaged instant oatmeal that she brought.

One of the Chefs came out to speak with her and told her of the dessert and then the second option and third. When she couldn't have any he made her a special one.

For a school trip this year we found nut-free and peanut-free energy bars from Avalanche. http://www.avalanchebars.com/nutfreebars.html

Each bar is about 300 calories and 10g protein so it was a decent meal substitute and easy to have in a backpack. The blueberry was our favourite with apple in second.

Their shipping was quick.
