Traveling with kids already has plenty of challenges--working
around naptimes, finding things to do that they (and you) will
enjoy, figuring out a family vacation budget--without adding in the
challenges of feeding a kid with food allergies.
I'm lucky. I just had to figure out how to feed a picky eater
when we were traveling (all-inclusive resorts turned out to be a
great answer--rooms full of buffet lines that were sure to have at
least one thing he would eat).

But feeding a kid with a potentially life-threatening food
allergy? Turns out there's an app for that.
The Chicago people who created the terrific Gluten-Free
and Allergy-Free Passport books now have
smartphone apps for finding allergy-free fast food joints and
restaurants as well as allergy-safe eating at Disney World.
