96 - How to Take a Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Vacation with Laura Falzon
Tips to Help You NOT Blame Your Child with ADHD

How do you stay gluten-free when you’re away from the comfort of your own kitchen? That’s the question we’ll dive into today.

Laura Falzon, the creator of the popular YouTube channel Five Hungry Travelers, joins the show to share practical tips and strategies to make travel less stressful and more enjoyable for families who are prioritizing health conscious choices. Laura shares ways to travel without compromising on dietary restrictions. She has worked for years in the travel industry before starting her own business as a birth doula.

When her child needed to adapt his diet to manage his ADHD symptoms, their whole family learned to trust their bodies and heal themselves through a gluten free and dairy free diet. As a result, Laura developed an approach to take their diet on the road and continue their family adventures around the world. Now, she shares this expertise on her YouTube channel, Five Hungry Travelers, to help families confidently travel with kids with dietary restrictions
