Teach your child not to share eating utensils, drinks or plates with anyone, including you (unless you are positive that whatever you are eating and/or drinking does not contain any of the allergic food). Remind her every day not to take sips from people's cups or try a bite of their food. If she's old enough, give her some stock replies -- "Thanks, but I'm allergic to nuts. Would you like to try a bite of mine?" -- so that she knows what to say without feeling rude or left out. If she's younger, give her something to wear that lets others know she has an allergy. See next slide!
