Dear Alexander,

My whole family is coming over for Thanksgiving. How can I be sure that my food allergies will not stop me from really enjoying the holiday?

<p>Thanksgiving can be complicated when you are managing food allergies. It is important to keep a positive outlook and find ways to make the experience a happy one. Get involved in picking foods for dinner with your parents, and even help make the foods that are safe for you.</p>

<p>Also, Thanksgiving isn’t just about food. Play games with your family, watch movies, put puzzles together – have fun! It is a time to relax, not just to eat. There’s a whole lot of stuff to do, so get out there!</p>

Good luck!

Your friend,

Alexander Signature
