Summer camp is a place for your kids to swim, play sports, run around and have fun! If your child has a food allergy, summer camp can seem scary. It’s not uncommon to find peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or products consisting of eggs and wheat in the camp cafeteria, but for many children who suffer with food allergies, these products can raise high concerns. According to The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), 8% of U.S. kids have been diagnosed with food allergies and every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction occurs. With food allergies on the rise, it’s extremely important for parents to inform teachers and staff of their child’s allergies, as well as take precaution into their own hands.
Hope Paige, has created new, fashionable, and affordable medical bracelets for children to remain safe when suffering with food allergies when away at summer camp, in the classroom, on a field trip or a play date at a friend’s house. These ID bracelets are stylish and easily blend in with everyday pieces, but during a time of need, will stand out to medical professionals. With fun colors, styles and a personalization option, these bracelets will allow any child to show off their personal style with a one-of-a-kind bracelet while staying safe.
You can even give back by purchasing a bracelet created by a celebrity and a portion of the proceeds will go to their favorite charity. For example, Melissa Joan Hart supporting ST. JUDE Children’s Hospital, Misty May-Treanor supporting BreastCancer.Org, Kimora Lee Simmons supporting JDRF and more.
In addition to the bracelets, Hope Paige has created an infographic illustrating the amount of children suffering from allergies who will be attending summer camp this year. We all work so hard to keep our kids safe, why not ensure that they are protected by wearing a stylish bracelet to let everyone know about their allergy.
