I was in my local grocery store and a little child was crying. I heard his father trying to explain to him that they could not buy something for his party because they wanted a little girl, presumably a friend, to be able to eat it as well. The father, who I don’t know but assume is in the Dad Hall of Fame, was trying to explain the concept of food allergies to the child. He gently told the child that they needed to protect the young girl in a way that made the boy understand.
Explaining food allergies to a young child is tough. I suggest outsourcing the job to my favorite Australians (sorry, Wolverine, but you haven’t tried to explain food allergies to kids as far as I know). Legend has it, and by ‘legend’ I mean The Wigglepedia, founding member Anthony Field has a son with a peanut allergy.
Many thanks to The Wiggles for teaching their fans, who are mainly under five but occasionally are over 30 (no judgements here), around the world about food allergies.
