Allergy Labels for Food Containers
I'm new to peanut allergy but all my kids have various other food allergies varying in severity. My oldest boys are in school and it always makes me nervous sending them off and allowing them to eat lunches/snacks at school. We've tried a number of different products over the years to act as a reminder of food allergies (they both wear medic alert bracelets but I'm really not sure how many people notice them... especially when they are covered by a long sleeved sweat shirt). Anyway... we came across these labels (check out the site at [url="http://www.christa.mabel.ca"]http://www.christa.mabel.ca[/url] They allow you to list up to six allergens which will appear on each label. They are bright red with white writing and are about the size of an address label. They are completely dishwasher and microwave safe and super durable. My oldest kids (7 and 8) have had them on their lunch/snack containers since the middle of summer and have used and washed them everyday and they still look as good as new. The other thing I like about them is that you can choose a cute icon which allows my two year old pre-reading daughter (peanut allergy and various others) to distinguish her cups and snack containers from everyone else's. Anyways... I just wanted to mention this product in case anyone was looking for an extra way to let people know of their child's allergies.
If you'd like any further information please let me know and I'd be happy to send you some. Thanks. CJ
