As a food allergy parent you must ALWAYS be prepared.  Forgetting the Epi-Pens just one time can mean the difference between life and death-many people do not have enough time to wait for emergency crews to respond before it’s too late.  Today I am sharing with you what I always have with me and what helps us stay safe.

The new Extra® 35-stick pack of Extra® Gum Polar Ice®.

My Car Kit contains baby wipes, food allergy wet wipes, and changes of clothes.  Accidents happen and cross contamination is a real threat in our daily life.  I am thankful that at four he knows what the warning signs are for when he is about to puke BUT he just gets really upset when he starts to go into a full allergy-attack.  I mean honestly people of ALL ages get upset and frightened when they start to go anaphylactic . Thankful that at his school there is a team of people keeping him safe and educating fellow teachers and substitutes of the procedures that he requires just to survive.

On our trip to Walmart last week I was able to grab two more packs in the checkout line.  Super easy to find and I love that they fit in my purse or wallet.  Both Extra® Gum Polar Ice® and Extra® Gum Spearmint are available in the larger packs that are packaged in durable, recycled packaging.  Win-Win. Give Extra, Get Extra.

Extra® Gum Spearmint

I tend to have HORRIBLE breath when I am in new situations and am always carrying a pack of Extra® Gum Spearmint.  I am definitely happy that they now come in 35 stick packs!  WOOHOO.  It truly is the little things.  Be grateful that I have this with me-if we ever have the pleasure of meeting in real life.  I kid.  But really.
