On Playgrounds and Airplanes

Wash hands and wipe tables after eating. This could help protect others from accidentally exposing themselves to food allergens through crumbs and oils–especially people with so many allergies that it’s hard to avoid all problematic foods, says Amy DiElsi of Malvern, Pennsylvania, whose son is allergic to wheat, eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, and sesame. (This habit is, of course, good protection against viruses, bacteria, and irritants as well.) Another tip: Teach your kids to eat at designated tables rather than on playground equipment.
