When your child is allergic to peanuts, gluten, eggs, shellfish, or anything else, going to a restaurant can be a terrifying experience. Even if you order something you deem to be safe, you can’t be 100% sure that the person preparing the food won’t mistakenly use a spatula that has been contaminated, or even reuse a sauce pan that still contains trace elements of the dangerous food.

Of course it’s not always possible to never go out or to bring food along for the allergic child, but simply telling the waitstaff about the allergy isn’t always reassuring enough.

These allergy cards, inspired by moms re-purposing our business cards to list their children’s allergens, are just what you need in your purse or pocket when heading out to eat.

Hand them to the waiter when you place your order. The card will stay with the order and will catch the attention of each person who comes into contact with the food.

Once your child gets a bit older they can bring the card with them when they go out with friends. If something does happen, the restaurant and people with your child will have your contact information on hand!

Are you the one with the allergy? No jealousy! This design is perfect for older kids or adults.
