Labels Available for the Most Popular Allergies Including Peanut, Nut & Wheat Gluten Intolerance
Giving parents greater peace of mind, AllerMates introduces a new line of food package labels to address the concerns of moms of food allergic kids. The food package allergy alert labels help keep children safer by reminding everyone in the household what foods are safe and which foods should be avoided. Parents can place them on food packages or containers to clearly distinguish what isn’t safe to eat. The labels make it easier for families to stock foods with and without allergens for various household members while creating a safer environment for kids with allergies. Moms can now keep their granola in the pantry while keeping Joey or Susan safe. The labels replace many a hand written note or sticky pad.
The food package labels are a highly useful and effective way to communicate and inform caregivers and protect children when they are at school, at camp, with babysitters, on play-dates, with coaches and more.
THE STORY Iris Shamus, a mother of a child with multiple food allergies, was frustrated by the lack of allergy-related kid-friendly products, so she took action and created AllerMates, a new line of bright, fun, whimsical character-driven wristbands, dog tags, stickers and lunch boxes that young children would happily embrace. AllerMates products always put a smile on a child’s face while parents love the comfort and security that comes from knowing their children are better protected while out of their immediate care. The stickers, wristbands, dog tags and other products Iris created in between her children’s play-dates and carpools will soon be found in CVS, Kmart and Toys R Us!
Interview with Iris Shamus.
