Do Food Allergies Have to be a Negative?

I received text message last night from another classmates mother telling me how impressed she was with our son and how he handles his allergy! She said she helped out in the classroom last week and during snack time the other kids were eating fruit snacks and he was eating his apple. She said if that were her kid she would throw a fit that she wanted what the other kids had, but our son didn’t.

Our kids are friends and were sitting by each other during snack time. When the mother went over to see her daughter, our son said “I get to bring my own snack everyday! I can’t have cows milk” She said he was so happy to bring his own snack!

I guess I never thought about it, but I’ve always tried to put a positive spin on him taking his own snack. He gets to pick it out, help with the cupcakes for classmates parties, and we have always approached it by saying ” you get to take your own snack” vs “you HAVE to take your own snack”
