I’m mum to a 3yr old who has anaphylaxis to Dairy. We are fine and use to taking a lunch box everywhere we go. But I am astounded at in this day and age, with Allergies so prevalent that people still offer kids food. Especially without asking the parent first.
I understand that it is a kind gesture but it just make the little person sad when they can’t have it.
Yesterday my son was doing a dance at the shops (as he does), and the lady at the coffee shop saw him. She thought it was so cute (and it was). But then went up to him with food and said your such a good dancer here you go. A lovely gesture, but ends in me saying he can’t and then him getting very upset.
Please just take two second to check with parents first, I’m lucky my little one said “I’ll have to ask my Mum”. And didn’t just take the food. Not all children will have this restraint.
Sorry rant over
