Back in ye olde days, eating was a whole lot simpler. Foods weren’t overprocessed, kids weren’t allergic to everything, and parents didn’t OCD over every morsel.
Take back the table with customized health ID gear from Stat Kids.
The colorful wristbands, lunch bags, and backpacks allow you to clearly identify allergies or health issues so kids are protected when they’re out on their own. Cherry red silicone bands are waterproof, comfy, and fit small toddlers. Backpacks and lunch bags have display windows for health info. Travel fannypacks provide easy access to keep EpiPens, inhalers, and emergency medical info.
So they can eat, drink, and not feel scary.
