How to Travel With Children Who Have Food Allergies

How to Travel With Children Who Have Food Allergies – Aside from pregnant woman and toddlers, there is one more condition that needs special attention in a trip; children with food allergies. They cannot eat specific foods or their bodies will react strongly. Is there any way to ease the parents’ burden?

– Be More Selective For Hotel Equipments And Location
Keep in mind that children with food allergies cannot deal with even a drop of the forbidden food. Therefore, buying food should be the last option parents could take. It is far better and safer to cook food. In this case, parents should find hotels with kitchen equipment. If these equipments are not mentioned in the website, then email or give them a call.

Next thing to check is hotel location. Remember that you are going to cook. It is impossible to bring fresh groceries along with you. Then find hotel which is located near to traditional market or big market with fresh produce. Making practical choice like this is essential in every aspect, including when you choose for your online gambling games site.

= Look For Suitable Restaurants Beforehand
You are going to enjoy holiday with your family. Why does it feel like you are just moving into another house? It might be because of the cooking. Dining out once in a while is great option. However, you need to find restaurant that could cook tasty food even without the forbidden ingredients. Make a lot of calls if needed to make sure about this point.
Don’t forget to prepare Chef Card. There are tons of free templates online. It basically tells the restaurant chef about your children’s food allergies. Print out some of them and give one to the waiter as you place your order.

– Pack Emergency Drug And Document In Your Pocket
No matter how well you are preparing, things might go wrong. A pancake from nearby store might have sprinkle of peanut your children cannot deal with. This won’t be your first time seeing the reaction, so take action immediately. Bring all the medication needed, even if it is an injection.
For safety reason, you might need to bring official letter from your doctor. As you know, airport security won’t allow syringe on the board. Show the letter for their reference.

Some parents are patient enough to wait until their kids are big enough before they plan a family trip. Mom and dad might think that their children will have less trouble since they are older now. What if they have food allergies? Surely they need to be cautious while planning the trip.

Visiting New York with Family

In this year Thanksgiving, we visited my parents who lived in New York. We visited them at least once a year either Thanksgiving or Christmas. The kids also have so much fun in New York. Here are the lists that I could recommend when you are bringing your kids to New York

Take a Cruise around the Statue of Liberty
I know it sounds a bit touristy, but it is a fun thing to do. We took a 60 minutes cruise around the statue of liberty. We took the boat from Pier 15 on the east side of New York City and the boat will go around and you could see the Empire State of Building, Manhattan Bridge, Governor’s Island and many other tourists’ attraction. for others whose English is not the first language, they also have multilingual audio that could be downloaded before the trip.

Visiting Central Park Zoo
My children love to go to the zoo, so this is a perfect trip for them. Central Park Zoo has the perfect size for toddler and mommy like me that don’t want to walk too much or get tired on chasing my children. They have sea lions, polar bears, penguins, and many other attractive animals. They also have a petting zoo section that is really a fun activity for the children. The cafeteria also offers affordable and nice food for kids such as pizza, chicken nuggets, goldfish crackers and many more.

Riding a Carousel under the Brooklyn Bridge
Jane’s Carousel (yes, we have the same name!) is located under the Brooklyn bridge and set with the backdrop of Manhattan skyline. Since this carousel didn’t open every day and different schedule on winter and summer, go to the website to find more information about the schedule and opening hour. If you have a child under 3 years old, the admission ticket is free but need to be accompanied with adults. However, the adult ticket is very affordable which is around USD$ 2 per ticket.

Strolling the Central Park
Central Park is really huge, and we spent many hours to explore the massive parks. We like to watch ducks at the pond or just walking around the park and enjoy the view. I like to pack some sandwiches and fruits, so we could sit down and enjoy the food. There is also a carousel in central park that your children could try.

Visiting New York with the family could be also a fun activity that you could try. Since we have my parents who lived there, we don’t have lots of problems to find other kid’s friendly activities to explore. For those who want to visit New York with the children, I recommend you go to the above places and enjoy your days in New York.

Homemade Avocado Recipes

Hi, I’m so in love with avocados lately. I used to eat it without adding any additional ingredients but I guess I’m kind of bored. I tried some homemade avocado recipes that very easy to make and I want to share with you.

Avocado Guacamole
Avocado can be served with fried bacon. Have you ever tried it before? You don’t need much time to cook this recipe. This recipe is so simple and yummy. My daughters love the tastes and make it as their favorite snacks. I don’t know whether this should be a dish or snack because it is so delicious. Ok, now let’s start to prepare the ingredients.

All you need are ripe avocados, fried bacon, tortilla chips, lime juice, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, pepper and salt. All you need to do is mashing up the ripe avocados in the bowl and mix with the whole leftover ingredients. Add the salt, pepper and lime juice and stir well. The avocado guacamole is ready to serve with tortilla chips for fans.

Avocado Toast with Egg
The next recipe is inspired by the yummy toast I bought in the street food couple of week ago. This simple dish is perfect for breakfast. The main ingredients are ripe avocados, egg, cheddar, salt, sliced onion, pepper, butter, and fried bacon. I use bacon because it is easy to fry, but if you want to change it with beef, tuna or chicken, that also will be great.

To make avocado and toast, you can start by slicing the avocado and make a hole in the middle of it. Fry the avocado with egg. Put the egg in the hole and season it with onion, pepper, and salt. Wait until the egg cooked and you can eat it with fried bacon.

Avocado Popsicle
This one is my daughter’s favorite. There is nothing can go wrong with Popsicle! This recipe is also easy to make and your children must love it. All you need are ripe avocados, sugar, organic chocolate (I used Lily), coconut milk and lime juice. You can blend all of these ingredients and leave it at freezer for overnight.

Avocado can be created into various delicious menus for your family. You can try my homemade avocado recipes for the breakfast and lunch menus. I will share my other recipes in my next post. It is so much fun to share what I got with you guys. See you around!

A Mom Free Day: What Did I Do in One Day

So, my husband was taking an extra off and he knew that I felt so exhausted lately with a routine as a housewife. So, he said in the morning, “Jane, do whatever you want to do today! No worries about the kids, I will take care of them” I was so excited and started to enjoy my “me time” and here what I did in one day

Enjoying Breakfast that My Husband Made
As someone that used to be a chef before, it was easy for him to prepare breakfast not only for me but for our two daughters. I had the mix omelette, baked tomato, sautéed potato and sausages. My daughters had chicken nuggets, scrambled eggs and fresh orange juice. It was so nice to be able to enjoy breakfast without the hassle of preparing it.

Four Hours Spa Treatment
Since we lived in LA, so there are lots of options of nice spa treatment. I am lucky that I am able to book on the same day. I had a one-hour massage and 30 minutes facial on the private room then I had the manicure and pedicure afterwards. The place was so relaxing and the therapists also very skilled and friendly.

Late Lunch with My BFFs
In the morning I called two of my girlfriends if they had time to meet me for lunch today. One of my friends is a model and she just came back from a project and had free time and the other one is a housewife and she managed to have her mom to take care of her son. So, we had time to meet and have lunch in a nice bistro. It had been quite a long time that three of us could spend time together like this and chat about our life.

After meeting my friends, I went back home, and my husband said, “you still have free time today, you don’t want to go somewhere else?” I answered, “Nah, I missed you and these beautiful kids! I have enough of “me time” and want to spend the rest of this evening with all of you. But will you cook us dinner?”
