Hello, (1,2)please inform the team leader (teacher) about his conditions. It is ok for few days to stray from strict diet regimen because he can always make up later on return, with tests for any damage to his balance. Vitamin supplement is OK to take on trip.(3) He should inquire about presence of nut in dish at each meal. Epi pen can be used in emergency and is OK to carry. Good luck to him.

Hello, No harm for him on short outing, in a stable condition he is in.Food will not be a problem and he has to inform waiter or caterer about his allergy. Epi pen also can be carried by him in case of emergency if the leader of his team knows about its operation.Multivitamin supplements can be taken as he is taking presently at home.
