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.
