I am a Mabel’s Labels Buzzmama which allows me to find out about the latest products and promotions. The most recent product I reviewed is the new allergy alert labels. This video shows you how I applied allergy alert labels to the cups and containers A.J. uses the most since he has a long list of food allergies. Be sure to use the social sharing tools to pin, tweet and share on Facebook since so many parents are coping with ways to keep their kids safe!
You can see that the new allergy alert labels have plenty of space for kids who have a lot of food allergies like A.J. It’s also a great visual reminder for him when we go over all the foods he can’t eat! I even made the horrible mistake of giving him a piece of my protein bar before I read the ingredients. Sure enough. It had peanuts and peanut flour. He started to vomit right away, we ended up in urgent care and he needed medication to stop his nausea. Talk about mommy guilt!
Food allergies are such a huge concern that I joined forced with other parenting bloggers. We hosted a webcast “Keeping Kids with Food Allergies Safe” where we share our experiences and advice. My guests were @RosesDaughter @PunkyMama and @JBledsoeJr.
Our children all have different food allergies and various child care arrangements, so I’m sure you can identify with at least one of my guests. Your school or organization can also promote Mabel’s Labels as a fundraiser. You get all the tools you need and can sign up online.
Watch this Today Show report on why kids’ food allergies are on the rise. It’s pretty revealing and I wished that I’d heard this information before I became a parents.
