Making Food Allergies Easy for Kids to Understand


















Allergies to nuts, dairy and other foods are becoming more common among today’s kids. If you have a child with a food allergy, you’ve probably scoured your home to clear out any snack threats. But what can you do once you send your kid to school, daycare, or to a party or on a playdate — especially if your kid’s too young to read a list of ingredients on packaging?

These latex-free snap-on bands from Assure Products might help avoid allergy emergencies. They fasten around little wrists and come in blue, green and pink. Cartoon pictures of the ingredient no-no can help little kids can understand the danger — and remind the other grown-ups in your child’s life to be careful at snack time.
