What better way to kick off this Back to School party than a giveaway.
Going back to school can cause a lot of anxiety for kids and parents. If you child has food allergies that anxiety goes thorough the roof, and with good reason. There are a number of things you can do to help your child be safe.
- Spend time educating your child’s teacher and other staff about food allergies and get a 504 Plan
- Teach your child to advocate for themselves
- Pack safe lunches and snacks
- Wear an allergy alert bracelet
Over the next two months I intend to help you learn more about all of these methods. Starting with a GIVEAWAY!
Today I’m giving away 2 Allerbling Kits. Each kit includes two bracelets (one large and one small), one medical alert charm and eight food allergy charms. There is space for 5 charms on each bracelet. Each kit retails for $18.00.
There are a lot of great allergy bracelets available. I did a lot of research but one of the biggest problems I ran into was that I needed a bracelet for my preschooler. He started wearing the small Allerbling bracelet when he was 3. I also bought an adjustable bracelet about the same time.
I love that he can take both bracelets off by himself. This is helpful at bath time. We were initially concerned that he would remove it his bracelet and we wouldn’t know. He let him take turns wearing each one and eventually he decided to wear both.
The great thing about the Allerbling wrist band is that it is made of silicone (no latex), that means it is waterproof. Our adjustable bracelet causes some irritation when wet and I have to give it a good cleaning occasionally because it can get smelly.
Allergy bracelets can get expensive, they are worth the investment because they can save a life. I prefer these bracelets when dealing with little ones. They can be replaced as your child grows or if they get lost.
Enter to win an Allerbling Kit. Two winners will be selected on August 4th and notified via email. Winners will have 48 hours to send me their addresses or new winners will be chosen. US only for this giveaway.
