Do You Care for a Child with Allergies? Try AllerMates for Safer Playdates

Allergy-Conscious Mom Takes Action with AllerMates
Allergy Awareness Week May 13-19

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 wristbands, dog tags, and lunch boxes that her son would happily embrace.

Nannies and au pairs of children with allergies can now enjoy the safety and security of knowing the kids in their care are protected against unwanted allergens when they wear or use AllerMates products away from home.

AllerMates products are based on 14 fun original cartoon-like characters that represent the most common allergies: peanut, nut, gluten and wheat, milk, egg, shellfish, penicillin, insect sting, latex, pollen, fish, soy, sesame, and cat.

"No matter how many forms I signed or how many times I spoke to the teacher the inevitable happened," says Iris Shamus, Founder of AllerMates.

"My son and another allergic classmate were offered food they weren't supposed to have. So, I set out to create something more personalized so that a teacher or caregiver would always be aware of his allergies," explains Shamus.

She continues, "AllerMates wristbands gave me a sense of comfort and security I couldn't have without them."
