Any mom who has a an allergic picky eater knows just how sensitive a proper diet is for the little one’s well being. For those of you with allergic children in Paris, here are some steps you can take to help protect your child in school and generate awareness of food allergies.
As a parent of a child who suffers from the big trilogy – asthma, food allergies and eczema – I spend hours, days on end and nights trying to find non-medicinal solutions. I came across the Gesret Method, which claims to cure asthma, allergies, eczema and psoriasis. After exhausting my research, I decided to bring my son for a session with a wish to cure his asthma.
I’ve been on a roller coaster ride watching my son totally understand his allergies (checking with me if he can eat something) to witnessing my worst nightmare- my son eating his friend’s snack at the park. Then, this weekend came the big shocker. He picked up his baguette and said, “Mommy, this is how I eat my baguette in school”. Then, he took a huge bite and said “miammmm”. I almost had a heart attack.
Like many allergic kids, my three year old has the trilogy of allergies, eczema and asthma. Just three weeks after his birth, he began having red rashes on his cheeks... The pediatrician told me he had eczema. What? I didn’t even know what eczema was!!!
Your emotions run high: you’ve just discovered that your child is bullied, anger or fear are rising and you want to take action right now! Not so fast....First, find out why & how YOU can empower your child to fight back the bully.
Having a child with food allergies means you probably have a picky eater. As babies, they have a natural defense/instinct to reject foods that could harm them. Nature is well made. As they grow older, they become a bit fearful of food and trying new things, which makes feeding an allergic child more challenging.
