Nut Allergies

Ah so I took all three of my children to the allergist only to find out two have Nut Allergies. I thought oh my! I need to find a way to let others know. I found this site that translates your allergies other languages in case you travel. I decided I would make my own tags for my children just in case they weren’t able to communicate their allergy or the person they were with didn’t understand that nuts are everywhere and may not be as easy to spot as you would think.

I have three children and two are allergic to nuts. I know that most people can recognize the obvious appearance of nuts but most do not know that non obvious names for nuts. I also like having the tags laminated on my children’s bags just in case I forget to tell the people who take care of my children or if there is a new teacher. I send my children to a nut free school but you never know. I have make a card for you to place in a lunch box or a wallet. You can see the top 5 Allergies.
