Carefree day for kids with food allergies



When your child doesn't have a food allergy, the most that you have to deal with is a picky eater. But when coming near peanuts or dairy can cause serious health issues, then you have to be on your toes at all times.

So an event on Saturday is just what kids with food allergies and their parents need. They will be able to let their guards down when Amazinflates hosts a fundraiser for the nonprofit Kids With Food Allergies at Sports + Field in Wesley Chapel.

Mom_inflatable The Times story, by Helen Anne Travis, says that Amazinflates' nine inflatable fun houses and obstacle courses will be sanitized so kids with food allergies can jump and slide without fear of encountering an allergy-triggering particle. Only snow cones and cotton candy will be served — no milk, soy or nuts will be allowed.

And isn't it worth it for a few carefee hours for the kids to just be kids? Cost is $10 but adults are free. Find it at Sports + Field, 2029 Arrowgrass Drive, Wesley Chapel.
