If your child has a serious food allergy, you know what a grind it is (and how high-maintenance you feel) reminding everyone about it all the time. It would be so much easier to just write it across his forehead, but alas, that's not the most realistic solution. And that clunky medic alert bracelet? So not cool, Mom.
But here's a stylin', low-key alternative to the bracelet. Jeeto!'s allergy collection includes patches, shirts, and stickers with phrases like: "No Peanuts Please" or "Dairy Free" that you can plaster all over your child's backpack, jackets, or lunchbox to make sure teachers, babysitters, waitresses, or anyone who might give him food is aware of the no-nos on his list.
What's even better -- the design is super cool (not unlike those band patches you used to stick on your pack back in the day) so stitching them to his backpack won't be a battle. And if you're not so good with the needle and thread? The patches can be ironed on too.
Patches are available in packs of 3 for $12.95, 6 for $22.95, and 10 for $35. Stickers come in packs of 5 for $4.99. Shirts are $17.95-$22.95. To order online visit:
