The holiday season can be a difficult time for those who have food allergies.
With the holiday season centered around food, especially during Thanksgiving, it may be difficult to avoid food allergens. The most common 8 are (in no particular order), eggs, milk, wheat, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish. If you, someone in your household or a guest has a food allergy, it is important to identify it and have alternative menu options.
There are many online alternatives to traditional Thanksgiving dinners that do not contain typical food allergens. But it is always important to ask your guests what their food allergens may be because someone may not have the traditional food allergies.
And always have injectable epinepherine around just in case.
