Situation Food Allergy: After Homecoming.


Do you let your child go to the diner?

Your child asks to go to the town diner after the annual Homecoming dance at school. Your child has an airborne allergy to eggs, and the diner serves breakfast 24/7. Eggs are always being cooked onsite. You know that this is an important social outing for your child, but you do not fully trust that the diner is a safe space for them. What do you do?
