Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 27, 2012
WhoHasTheRemote.com hopes that everyone enjoys the finest in home entertainment and delicious foods this holiday season. While it is perfectly acceptable to ease up on dietary restrictions during the holidays, certain people must be mindful of food allergies. For parents whose kids have reactions to peanuts, gluten or other products, added precautions should be taken while attending family potlucks.
Peanuts can be especially dangerous for anyone who has been diagnosed with an allergy towards the food. Subjects can suffer asphyxiation, diarrhea and even death from just a single peanut. Given the ubiquity of peanut particles and oils in various entrees, baked goods and packaged foods, special attention must be paid by parents with peanut-allergic children.
In order to avoid the aforementioned risks, desserts brought to parties by other guests should not be consumed by anyone with a peanut allergy. With dessert foods accounting for nearly half of all allergic reactions, one can never know what might be included in assorted cookies, puddings and pie crusts. To prevent children with food allergies from being tempted at buffets and potlucks, parents are advised to bring safe, alternate desserts to such events.
Holidays are times when everyone should be able to enjoy themselves, though health factors unfortunately do necessitate precautions in certain households. Otherwise, the month of December is a time of merriment, where families exchange presents while watching the various programs featured on dish network packages.
Closing: WhoHasTheRemote.com hopes that all families eat well this holiday season. To help the New Year arrive without any health scares, all care should be taken to ensure that potentially toxic foods are avoided by certain individuals.
