Germany with Milk, Egg and Tree Nut Food Allergies

I went to Germany with a son with severe food allergies to milk, eggs and tree nuts last summer. I just wanted to share a product brand that we found to be safe. The company Alpro makes soy milk, margarine, yogurt and pudding that are good tasting. It was generally available in the area we traveled to in northern Bavaria. From their website, they seem to distribute products throughout Europe. They have an email address on their packaging and responded to my questions of cross contamination quickly. Those products made are lives so much easier while we were there. I have posted a full travelogue of our allergy experiences on this trip here: http://tinyurl.com/bc477r7

I hope this is of help.

1. Re: Germany with Milk, Egg and Tree Nut Food Allergies

I just got back from a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. My daughter has a tree nut allergy and my doctor recommended something called "Chef Cards" - well I found a website that offers to print warning cards in various languages and ordered them in Vietnamese and Kmer (Cambodia). I was so glad I had them to help us order food that was safe while we were there.

The site is http://www.selectwisely.com/. They sent my order via email and I printed them and had them laminated before my trip. I carried them in a pouch with her epi pen and medications.
