Hot Chocolate is a fun treat during wintertime especially while watching a parade of Santa coming to town. Unfortunately, we have yet to find a safe place to buy hot chocolate for MG due to her peanut and tree nut allergies. This year I wised up and when we bought hot chocolate at Tully's we got water only for MG and brought a safe hot chocolate mix from home for her. When asked what her favorite thing was about the evening MG said, "Having hot chocolate with her friend at the parade." It's little things like this that make an allergic child feel included. I gave myself a little pat on the back for finally finding a way for MG to enjoy hot chocolate away from home and hope this little tip is helpful to someone else.
