My Grandchild Has Been Diagnosed With A Food Allergy: Familiarizing Oneself With An Epi Pen

A generation ago, food allergies, sensitivities and intolerances were pretty much unheard of…

This post is dedicated to all those grandparents out there that may be feeling a bit ‘lost’ in the world of food allergies.

Depending on the age of your grandchild, the EpiPen will be carried on your grandchild and/or by a reliable person trained in the administration of an EpiPen.

What if that reliable person needs to be you?
