Peanut Allergy

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Does anyone know if in Mexico (my wedding is at Dreams Tulum) people know about the seriousness of a peanut allergy ?

 

Yes, I will have about 4 epipens + a few bottles of benadryl for my 2 children (both are severly allergic... even to the touch they react!).

 

This allergy is quite commun now in the States + Canada, but how is it in Mexico?

 

I will be bringing lots of deserts for them but are the labels there as precise as here (every ingredients are written + "may contain peanuts" warning) .

My FI is allergic to Shellfish (yeah not so great when we travel coastal!), we always contact the resorts in advance and then bring a letter with us (translated into their language) and show the restaurant manager / waiter to show the chefs. they really appreciate this and we don't have to make a scene or try to translate about something so serious with mistakes!

I don't have any specific suggestions but I wanted to let you know that my niece also has a severe peanut allergy. She has been to both Cuba and the Dominican Republic several times and the resorts have been accomadating and understood when we mentioned her allergy. She eats in both a la cartes and buffets and she has not had a reaction.

yes I did read about that ! Great news if Kraft can start to make it !!! About 4 years ago I went to a seminar at McGill University and the doctor said that they figured that out a few years ago (produce a plant without the peanut proteen (that is what people are allergic too) but she said it would take a while before someone would actually produce them (more $$$$$ than the actual peanut plant). But yeah ! It's been more than 4 years and someone must of realized that since so many Americans + Canadians are allergic to peanuts, they should do it (and will probably get their $ back with all the sales now that most school band peanuts)smile159.gif

I just got a reply today from Dreams Tulum resort. I've always had quick replies with everyone that I wrote too so far (God knows how many e-mails Sandra WC got from me!!!!)

 

He said that I am not the 1st to go to the hotel with that type of allergy and once I will arrive there, he will give me a letter writen in spanish explaining the situation, for us to give each time we go to a restaurant.
