Keeping Kids Safe with Food Allergy Awareness Apparel

Posted 9.21.10 | Christine Graham-Garo

When you have a child with food allergies, it can be hard to leave them on the first day of school or send them off on a field trip. Will your child remember to avoid milk or gluten products? Will her teacher remember your little one can’t have those cupcakes? What if a classmate and your child trade lunches? These are all valid questions that must haunt a parent of a child with severe food allergies.

Food Allergy Clothing, Bracelets & More!

Fortunately, there are some easy ways to remind people about your child’s food allergies! Food allergy awareness t-shirts, wrist bands and more are available so that you can be sure the message gets out about the foods that they need to avoid.

As a child with Type 1 diabetes, I had to wear a bracelet that informed people that I was a diabetic. At that time, the bracelet looked very medical, so I wasn’t the biggest fan of wearing it. But if you take a look at the products out there now for kids with food allergies, you will see there are many more fun and fashion savvy items available!

Resources for Food Allergy Awareness Apparel:

  • Allergic Child – Allergic Child offers a wide range of food allergy awareness products, from t-shirts to chef cards. Take a look!
  • AllerGators – That adorable AllerGator will catch anyone’s attention! This clothing line is sure to be a hit for younger children with food allergies
  • Allergy Apparel – This line of food allergy awareness products may be the most popular with children. It is full of fashionable designs like skulls and peace signs while still alerting people about the child’s food allergies.

With all the new and trendy food allergy awareness products out there, your little ones can choose which they like most. But best of all, it will help communicate to those around them that your little one needs to stay clear of those specific food allergens.

Do you think your little ones may like these products? Have you purchased some already?
