Other Food Allergies
We are going to a wedding on the 19th of this month, a relative's.
She know's about ds's peanut allergy and they will not have any peanuts in bowls or in the food they are serving for dinner. However, she did say they are going to use Jelly Belly jellybeans as favors. She did ask what my boys would like to eat instead.
Should I be worried about people eating these? My ds is 6 and is well aware of his allergy. There will be only a hand full of kids under 12 there, so I am not really worried about jellybean slop all over. My non-pa ds will not be eating these either.
She is doing a sweet thing. She know's I am bringing him a cupcake for the wedding to eat instead of the main cake. She is having a cupcake peramid instead of layer cakes so my ds would not feel "different".
I thought this was very thoughtful.
That aside, they are just having the traditional ham, chicken, mashed spuds, corn, rolls, etc. I will call ahead to see if the use anything nut/peanut specific. Should I still bring his own meal? If yes, what would you suggest to bring?
