Allermates has always been one of my favorite brands. Which is kind of strange, considering I don’t have kids and they really focus on cartoon-ish fun wearables for kids with food allergies. However, I love supporting a brand that I believe in, and I believe that Allermates is trying to change the face of kids with food allergies, one Professor Wheatley bracelet at a time.
For anyone who has a food allergy, intolerance, or something like celiac disease – you know that it’s hard to feel happy and excited about our food issues. You know that we often feel lonely – like we’re the only one with our issues. But Allermates tries to make life with food allergies fun, while keeping kids safe with awareness wearables that are fun for the kid too!
Allermates has an entire line of products for a whole range of food issues available in their store. This includes:
- Allergy wristbands found here. You can find them in a host of food allergies and intolerances, as well as drug allergies (penicillin for me!) and latex allergies. I would get a cat allergy bracelet, but Murphy would know it was just a sham for me to avoid petting him. They’ve also added their new VEGAN bracelets – which rock!
- Allergy charm wristbands. Have more than one food intolerance or allergy? You can get a multi-charm bracelet here.
- Allergy dogtag necklaces here. These are great, and available in many of the same allergens as found in the wristbands.
- Allergy stickers here. You might remember that I used all of the Allermates stickers on my Thanksgiving items last year when I went to a highly-contaminated household!
- Allergy lunchboxes here. I feel pretty special because they have two versions of their larger lunchboxes – “I have food allergies” and “I’m gluten free.” These bright green insulated lunchboxes are great for kids and adults – as I bring mine to work, functions, and trips! They also have reusable bags too – even one for vegans!
- Epi-pen injectibles & medicine bags here. These newer additions to Allermates are extra awesome for the anaphylaxis community. They fit the Epi-pen and Avi-Q injectables. They can strap onto backpacks, bicycles, purses, etc. They are amazing! They also have bags for asthma inhalers too.
Aren’t they awesome? Again, I can’t say enough about this company. Luckily, I’ve been saving up some awesome Allermates goodies for a great giveaway, and acquired some great food allergy Allermates products at Food Allergy Bloggers Conference in Vegas a few weeks ago.
You know what that means? A GIVEAWAY! This one will be a little different – as I have more than just gluten-free things to giveaway! I’m going to need to know what specific allergies you have so I can get you the right stuff if you’re the winner! Here are some options:
- Wheat allergy/gluten-free
- Dairy allergy/intolerance
- Peanut allergy/intolerance
- Shellfish allergy/intolerance
- Other allergy/intolerance
- Anaphylaxis (I use an Epi-pen)

I have a mild dairy intolerance, but my friends have Gluten/Dairy allergies.
My two youngest are allergic to nuts, bees and penicillin. My older son is asthmatic. Allermates has been a lifesaver, literally. The multi-bracelets help keep everyone aware of their allergies, and the epi carriers make it easy and convenient to carry their pens. Allermates also has the best customer service of any company I’ve ever dealt with. When my daughter’s allergy bracelet tore after several months, they immediately sent me a replacement. Great company, great products!
Great company we use the bracelet for my little one and his nut allergies as well as epi pen and asthma!
My son has a severe peanut allergy and asthma we have the peanut allergy bracelet but am looking to get the multi-bracelet soon…huge fan!!

My oldest daughter haa enviromental allergies, pollen, grass, etc. She also has other allergies that we have not been able to pin point but have caused some bad reactions so we have an wpi at all times.
My youngest has a gluten intolerance (wont know if its celiac until she is older)and she has a dairy allergy along with strawberry allergy. She is also allergic to penicillins and has had some bad reactions to unknown allergies at times so we have an epi pen at all times for hee also !
These are super cute! There are 4 of us that have to avoid gluten (due to celiac disease) in my house and 2 of us with a dairy allergy. I love that they include asthma with these bracelets.
I’m in the Celiac category, so I have eliminated all gluten, all grain, and all soy from my household and diet. I’m trying hard to spread the awareness and support people with what I’ve learned!
I didn’t know they made wheat free/gluten free! They are so cute!
My three year old has celiac. He was diagnosed one exactlty one year ago.
These are awesome!
I have celiac disease and I just love the bracelets! I have a moderate dairy allergy and a shellfish allergy, so I would love to have a charm braclet. Everything else sounds adorable too!
I was diagnosed with CD in May this year. I think you rock Erica!!!!
I love Allermates and unlike you, I have a gang of allergy kids! For starters, no wheat/gluten, egg, dairy, nuts, peanuts and soy. 2 kids have Epipens.
Gluten-free for me and my daughter because of celiac.
I’m gluten intolerant, and I also stay away from soy, chocolate, and most dairy.
Allergies: Penicillin, Wheat, Sulfa based drugs, Seasonal (molds, pollen, etc)
Intolerance: Dairy, Eggs, Gluten (Celiac)
Oh. I didn’t realize these were for kids. I am not a child. Please remove me from the sweepstakes so that someone with a child can get them.
They can be for kids AND adults! I wear mine! it’s really fun! 🙂
I have gluten and dairy allergies.
Do you have the pollen charm and/or bracelet?
I have moderate pollen allergies and if i won i would love one of those. Thank you!
I don’t think they have one, but I’m not sure. Maybe check the Allermates.com website or message them on Facebook!
We do have a pollen wristband and charm 🙂 You can find it on our site 😉
My children and I have Celiac Disease, my son specifically has a shellfish allergy that seems to be getting worse the older he gets….
I have celiac disease (boo gluten) and am intolerant to citrus and citric acid.
I am a celiac, and also have a soy allergy. But I also do not eat eggs or dairy!
My daughter has a Tree Nut allergy. She hasn’t quite grasped that she can’t have the same snacks as every other kid, so it is very important that she has some safety measure that prevents people from harming our daughter.
She also has an epi-pen, but we are soon switching over to the Auvi-Q when her pens expire. We have several of the allermates products and love all of them!
Entering for my sweet nephew who has a severe peanut allergy
Im celiac but have allergies to nightshades, dairy, shellfish and mold.
My daughter has Celiac Disease.
Gluten, soy, corn and dairy
My list is quite long. Mostly top 8, p/n, t/n, and salads. Yes, salads: lettuce, spinach, green peppers, tomatoes, carrots, celery; salad. Latex, percocet.
I think this giveaway is great. I get so focused on being GF that I actually forget all the environmental allergies that I have until I start to show symptoms. This is my ever growing list of allergies/intolerances: Gluten ( of course! ), oregano, pollen, mold, dairy, some antibiotics, pineapple and eggs.
I Have never seen these bags before! WAY Coool!! Would totally use them for my grown up lunches!
I love allermates. I have a 5 year old with food allergies and asthma and then also an 8 year old diagnosed with Celiac. While my children sometimes feel left out and we have learn to hate food holidays, we are making it through and learning more every day to make life a little easier. My daughter felt left out for the longest time because my son got to (I make him is more like it) wear his allermates peanut wristband to parties. Then she was diagnosed with Celiac and was actually happy that she now get to wear a “cool” wristband like him. It really is the little things that make big impacts for them 🙂
Here is a list of our “household” allergies
Wheat/Gluten, dairy, all nuts tree and ground, dust mites, mold and most other environmental, oats, eggs, the list goes one with a side of asthma. We just gnaw on the kitchen table for meals!
one lost mother
Thank you for this contest. My 5 year old is Gluten Free.
My 10 year old daughter has celiac disease.
I have Celiac!
I suffer from Celiac, and I also have a few odd allergies as well. Cream cheese makes me break out in severe hives, and Tylenol makes me deathly sick 🙁
I’m entering because I after years of medical problems, I have finally figured out what is wrong with me, and I want something cuter than my medical bracelet 😛
I love this idea. The gluten/wheat charm and the insect allergy charm along with auvi-q/ epie pen charms would be the ones I need. I have the pens but will be will be switching when my pens exp.
Allergies… Penicillin, Naproxiin, Egg yolks, and then all my touch allergies. My dad is on the strawberry, fish and foul, jalapeno’s, cinnamon, raisins, who knows what else, it seems like there is something new each week!
