Living Without Favorites: Get the Message
It’s a parent’s nightmare—your food-allergic child in a crowded area overseen by busy, distracted preschool or daycare workers. How can you keep your youngster safe? Help is on the way, thanks to Rebecca Nelson, mother of two severely food-allergic children. Nelson’s Alert Clothing Company offers colorful T-shirts and sweatshirts designed for kids too young to speak for themselves. This kid-friendly clothing (T-shirts are made with 100 percent cotton, sweatshirts are a cotton/polyester blend) is cheerfully silk-screened with butterflies, dinosaurs; cowboys, fairies and other whimsy. More important, it sports bold, life-saving messages like Please No Food Sharing or No Nuts For Me. Parents and those who work with young kids will be grateful for the easy ID.
