Travelling with kids with Allergies
Multi-food allergy cards
Many children have food allergies these days and parents naturally worry about taking such kids away on a holiday – particularly overseas where language barriers could cause problems.
Not to worry! You can now buy laminated 'allergy cards', which come in 15 languages including English, and simply point to the translated sentence that says either:
'I am allergic to . . .'
Many foods are covered, including cheese, nuts, eggs, shellfish, mushrooms, strawberries, wheat and MSG, and each card offers three food translations – for example, pecans, barley and tomatoes – from and into one of the languages available.
Cards are reasonably priced and available from:
