How to Plan an Allergy-Friendly Family Vacation

10 Sep

Family travel blogger Nancy Solomon of Ciao Bambino offers her tips for planning an allergy-free family vacation.

There are many apps out there, easily found when you search “allergy”, “gluten” or “nut-free.” The apps I find most helpful are: Allergy Eats, I Can Eat, Restaurant Nutrition, Allergy Guard, and Allergy Translator. I constantly use Allergy Eats as it lists restaurants beyond the major chains and includes local favorites. Additionally, Yelpand Urban Spoon list restaurants with gluten-free options.

Ship Food Ahead of Time

Hard to find specialty food items can be purchased and shipped directly to your destination before travel begins. This way you guarantee that you’ll have what you need without taking up valuable suitcase space or vacation time.
