Philadelphia, PA, August 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- For millions of parents who face the daily challenge of managing their children’s food allergies, help is on the way courtesy of STAT kids™. From specially-sized, red silicone wristbands that boldly state each child's particular food allergy to bright red lunch bags that contain a prominent health alert, the STAT kids™ product line helps parents clearly communicate the needs of allergic children to teachers, coaches and substitutes.
The STAT kids™ product line includes kid-friendly, allergy-specific wristbands, lunch bags, backpacks, and Epi-Pen carry bags. Each item was designed by founder, Robin Davison, with her own child’s safety in mind.
“As the number of children with food allergies continues to rise at an alarming rate, an increasing number of parents struggle to keep their children safe,” said Davison. “When children go into new classrooms with new teachers, even into new schools, the need for practical, age-appropriate tools to protect them is particularly important.
"Whether my son is at school or camp, on a play date or at a birthday party, I worry that someone could unknowingly give him the wrong food. For children with food allergies, this mistake could mean the difference between life and death. Our goal is to make it easier for parents to protect their children," added Davison.
The STAT kids™ product line includes:
Health ID Wristbands -- Kids love them because they're fashionable and comfortable. Parents love them because they are effective and kids actually want to wear them. STAT kids™ hypo-allergenic, 100% silicone bands makes the identification of a child's specific food allergy quick and easy. The bright red wristbands with white lettering are eye-catching to ensure maximum visibility and are comfortable, durable, water-proof and stretch for easy on and off. Available in extra small, small and medium sizes.
Health ID Lunch Bag -- The most important feature of this bright red lunch bag is its clear display window that holds a customized health ID card. This easily identifies a child’s specific food allergy or other health issue…especially important during mealtime, when the risk of exposure is at its highest.
Health ID Backpack -- Now children can go to school, day care or a sleep-over with a health alert that can't be missed. The STAT kids™ backpack features a display window that holds a customized health alert which can be updated as need change.
