School field trips are a cherished part of the educational experience, offering students a chance to explore the world outside the classroom walls. However, for families dealing with food allergies, field trips can also bring about unique challenges and concerns.
We offer the following tips to help make your trip a success:
Make sure school field trip forms indicate your child has a food allergy
Teachers, aides and chaperones need to know where your child’s epinephrine auto-injector is located
Review your food allergy action plan to confirm it is up-to-date and includes information for eating meals and snacks during field trips
