One of the downsides of summertime is seasonal allergies. My husband and older son have struggled with seasonal allergies their entire life, and summertime is one of the hardest for them to manage. With all the blooming flowers and grasses, it is a continuous battle for both of them. Recently, I invited some of my girlfriends over to talk and share their tips for managing seasonal allergies with children. Together, we were able to share all of our tips to help make our children more comfortable during the summer months.

One tip that we all agreed on was the importance of exercise. Keeping our kids active can help boost their immune system so that they can better fight their seasonal allergies.

The second tip is to cook healthy. Food has many healing properties, and I have used healthy cooking as a way to fight my a lot of my sons allergies. During the party, all of the moms brought their favorite kid-friendly healthy dish and recipe for us to share. We all walked away with new recipes to try with our families at home.
