12 Days of Celiac Christmas: #7 & #8 Allermates

Let me start off by apologizing that I’ve combined dates 7 and 8, but when I thought about the cool giveaway from AllerMates, I thought that it would be best to combine their products and offer two gift packs that feature the best of the best (in my opinion) of AllerMates!

If you’re not familiar with AllerMates, they make fun bracelets and stickers for kids with allergies, asthma, and health issues – all while keeping them safe. They’ve got a great selection for ALL allergies – not just wheat/gluten – peanuts, eggs, soy, shellfish (Mr. Crabby), and conditions like diabetes, asthma, and latex allergies. Yes, they even have a cat allergy one!

These bracelets are fun, and even fit my adult wrists! It makes kids have something fun that also keeps them safe (they’re way cooler than Medic Alert bracelets!). Thanks to AllerMates for giving me a sample bracelet and some stickers so I could testdrive the product for you all.

I wore the “Professor Wheatley” one around on Thanksgiving.

And to add to the Thanksgiving fun, I also brought in their allergy-friendly gluten-free stickers too! Not only do they have “proud to be gluten-free” stickers, but they have a “don’t eat me, I’m not gluten-free” stickers too! These are great for kids that can not only help them feel accepted for their food allergies, but to also warn them about items in the house or at gatherings that are not safe for them to eat.

I put them all around on Thanksgiving to show all of the party guests what I have to go through at every party by examining all of the food and declaring it “safe” or not (mostly not). It also told them what foods they needed to take their gluten-ridden hands off of!

BOO! Who brought the awesome-looking chips???

No, Murphy isn’t gluten-free (he doesn’t like gluten-free cat food) so I have to be careful with him drinking out of my coffee cup or desert bowls!

I loved using these stickers – and I’m an adults! These are super fun for kids, and I would definitely recommend AllerMates to any parents that have kids with any food or environmental allergies. On top of these stickers and bracelets, AllerMates also sells lunchboxes, epi-pen holders (seriously SO adorable), dog tags, and multi-charm bracelets (if you have multiple allergies). Awesome.

    I so need to win this because my 3 year old was “poisoned” on Thanksgiving after I told him that the gluten free cookies were on the fish plate and the regular cookies were on the other plate. Well the fish plate was moved and naturally he grabbed a cookie from the other plate! Grrrr….if we had these great stickers it wouldn’t have happened!!!! What a great idea. If I don’t win make sure you get these in the drug store so I can buy them! 😉 We have the bracelet, purchased from Walgreens.

    It seems like a fun and nonthreatening way to introduce the topic of gluten free.

    Love the bracelets! My daughter would love to have a Prof. Wheatly bracelet. She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 3 years ago. Thank you for making such cute “allergy aware” stuff.

    I would like to win these, because putting these stickers around during the holidays could help me from getting “glutenized” or cross contaminated.

    Having 4 of us that are gluten sensitive these would come in handy!
