Peanut-free signs at school - provided by school as well as his picture outside the classroom door and in the staff room so teachers know the allergy children's faces quickly.
He wears a fanny pack ALL THE TIME when not at home. He carries two epipens and his puffer (exercise induced asthma) along with alot of other treasurers I clean out from time to time. Medical alert used to make a "medicine pouch" that was perfect for kids and clearly identified that medicine was inside. Now he just has a plain black one. He is 9 now and because he is getting to be "cool" he covers his pouch by wearing his t-shirts over it.
Yes to a medical alert braclet (with a hockey team logo) although he often doesn't wear it.
No to sunbutter or soybutter but recently he tried soybutter and wants us to buy some.
We have the book, "No Nuts for Me" and I have a couple of memberships.

I only have the following items:
7. Medical Braclet/necklace
8. Sunbutter or Soybutter (or similar)
9. Video tapes, books and stuff, memberships
We carry his epi pens in my bag or (now)sister's diaper bag. He has a medical braclet that he wears only on a few occasions (like large parties with potluck foods) We have soybutter in our pantry, and have only eaten it a few times. Son doesn't like it, husband thinks it is okay, and I have only had it once. We have the Allie the Allergic Elephant book, and he loves this. We read it often, and I also belong to FAAN and get the kids newsletter for him (although he can't read) I read it to him.

I had a thing to wrap on a shopping cart handle since my dd would immediately chew on such a bar(DS s going to be the same) but it had nothing to do with allergies.
DD owns a medic alert bracelet and does not keep it on the few timew I tired. I had her wear it on a field trip and I was there and a few times she had in in her hands, even though she thought it was cool. Not sure what to do about this as I want her to wear one on the bus and to K in another year.
We use soy butter and sunbutter and have a video and book about PA for children. becca

1. The Clean Shopper (or similar)
Never heard of it.
2. The Clean Diner (or similar)
Never heard of it.
3. Peanut-free signs (at home, school or somewhere else?)
My kids' preschool has them outside the classroom.
4. Peanut-free stickers
No.
5. Peanut-free gear (which ones? hats, shirts..etc)
I've thought about getting DS a shirt to wear to picnic-type events, but haven't.
6. epi-pen carrier belts (or fanny pack...etc.)
Yes. We have a carrier belt and a FAAN medicine pouch. Hopefully DS will wear the belt when he starts kindergarten (assuming the school will allow it).
7. Medical Braclet/necklace
DS has a MedicAlert bracelet.
8. Sunbutter or Soybutter (or similar)
No. I don't want DS to confuse them with PB.
9. Video tapes, books and stuff, memberships
We have the "Alexander the Elephant" video, the "No Nuts for Me" book, and the "Peanut Allergy Answer Book." I really, really wish that they sold a "No Nuts for Me" video or DVD. I think that the "No Nuts" book teaches a lot more than the "Alexander" video does.
I also bought "The Peanut Butter Jam." I did not like it, so we haven't read it to DS.
We belonged to FAAN for a while, but quit because we disagreed with some of their policies (mainly telling people that bans are bad, and that peanut oil is safe). It's frustrating trying to explain to people why FAAN has a different comfort level than we do.
