All children should come with warning labels, anyway

Anyone who has a small child with severe food allergies knows the temptation to wrap said kid up in yellow hazard tape or otherwise clearly label him in such a way that no one gives in to the temptation to offer Junior a cookie that might kill him. (This sound completely foreign to you? Count your blessings.) My son used to have a life-threatening peanut allergy, and in the days when he was basically pre-verbal, taking him anywhere there might be food was always nerve-wracking.

Fortunately, AllerGators understands that desire to label your kids, and they’ve found a way to do it that’s so cute and fun, your kids will want to wear their gear all the time.

Even better, this week (through May 19th), AllerGators is donating 100% of their profits to The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network in honor of Food Allergy Awareness Week. It’s great gear, and this week it’s for a great cause.

  1. That is so cute! I will tell a friend of mine about that. Her son is allergic to nuts.

  2. I like the wristbands…my son is allergic to tomatoes and strawberries…not as bad as many kids who get anaphalaxis, but bad enough to break out in hives and be miserable for several days…but he’d never keep the wristband on.

  3. What an awesome idea! I hope it catches on and they expand their line.

  4. I like the lunch bags. It alerts even the substitute lunch supervisors to the potential for trouble.
