One Step Ahead has Allergy Labels (perfect for school)! with #Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


One Lucky Winner Gets the  40 Allergy Labels seen here!
With school starting up again soon, parents everywhere are scrambling to get their kiddos ready. There are so many things to consider including clothes, lunches, school supplies, etc. What might be overlooked, however, is finding a way to easily share with administration and other school/caregiver personnel that your students have an allergy.

Of course parents inform, but allergy information can oh so easily be forgotten or mistakenly overlooked in the midst of a busy school day. One way to prevent that and ensure your child is safe is with allergy labels! The more visible an allergy label is, and the more often it is seen, the more likely those working with your children are to remember your child has an allergy.

One Step Ahead has devised an easy system to let others know your child(ren) has an allergy with these bright red stickers that are so easy to apply and yet so effective in getting the message across. Highly visible but unobtrusive, these stickers are a great way to send out the reminder. I would advise sticking them on everything! Clothes, backpacks, lunch boxes, jackets, coats, etc., I'd put these on all of the above and more. With such an easy way to help spread the message, parents can rest a little easier when their children are away from home.

You can get a 40-pk of allergy labels for $19.95 at One Step Ahead. They come pre-printed in just 'allergy' or they come with specific listings such as, 'no soy,' 'no nuts,' 'no dairy,' 'no eggs,' 'no gluten,' 'no meat,' and one that says, 'no seafood.' They are also microwave and dishwasher safe.

Learn more about the labels by visiting the One Step Ahead website. You can also follow along on Facebook and/or Twitter.

I have a 40pk of the generic and ever-so-awesome 'allergy' labels to give away (you can see them in the picture above). One lucky winner takes them all. US entrants only.

Oh this is so essential anymore. What a great idea.

Have a fabulous day Rose. ☺

Susan Kane said...

Do they peel off and stick? Will they stick on clothing through washing? Are there sew-on badges? These would be so helpful for parents to inform the school, keep on informing them.

How I wish this wasn't necessary. Allergies, and particularly life threatening allergies seem to be increasing dramatically.

debdenny said...

That is a great idea. Perfect way to let people know.

Pat Hatt said...

Allergies are everywhere, can sure help to make all aware

Jeanine said...

Oh this is awesome. I know plenty of kids who would benefit (life or death) with allergies so these would be perfect! - Jeanine

Rebecca Bryant said...

I wish this wasn't a necessity but as someone with Allergies I know it is.

Robin (Masshole Mommy) said...

These are very important. We don't want our kids accidentally ingesting something that they are allergic to. That would be a parent's worst nightmare.

FidoseofReality said...

This is a great idea and I love that you can give these to kids to put on their products to keep them safe.

Heather Lawrence said...

I totally agree with elephants child.
When I was little I went to school with a peanut butter sandwich and a thermos of warm milk every day!
Now both are high allergy risks :(

Jody Arbogast said...

I like their selection of toys. And i learned they have Bath, Home and clothing as well.

Aunesty Janssen said...

These are awesome, I just wish they existed 13 years ago when my college student was in elementary school

Milena said...

I know so many kids with allergies. These would be so helpful.

Theresa Mahoney said...

It must be very scary to send your kids off to school when they have food allergies. That's great that companies are making it a little easier to keep kids safe when they are away from home!

Liz Mays said...

Oh wow those could really come in handy. My kids were allergic to a couple of really common things.

Mama to 5 said...

This is great! I know many that have peanut allergies and can be fatal.

RANE said...

Great Idea Rosey ... These can be life threatening and sometimes the Teachers and Staff really don't know since they weren't told. The Labels are a great idea

ACM'smommy said...

This is a great idea and would be so helpful for school aged kids with allergies. I'm sure this will really help someone!

Chelle W said...

That is such an awesome idea! Last year there were a lot of close calls in my son's room with other kids when they had substitutes. Going to share with friends!

Jessica Harlow said...

I'm so grateful that my children seem to be allergy free (so far). I would be constantly worried if my kiddos had food allergies. It would be so hard to make sure that everyone was informed. Love the idea of these stickers!

Binky said...

That would probably be pretty effective.

Courtney said...

This is such a great idea. Allergies are serious business and there seems to be more and more of them these days!

Ai Sakura said...

Ah yes! We remember about name labels but forget about allergies!

Holy Ghost Writer said...

A great idea to keep allergies in the open and known

Joyce Lansky said...

Looks like the sort of thing someone could really use.

Christy Maurer said...

I like the sand away beach sheets! These allergy labels are great! It would be so helpful for parents who have kids with allergies.

Censie Sawyer said...

Great idea. It is so scary how easy it is for kids to get food at school that could really hurt them

Amanda Love said...

My youngest is allergic to certain fruits so this is perfect for her when she's in daycare. I'll have to check them out.

Kristi Maloney said...

As someone who is responsible for watching many kids during lunch and recess at grade school - this would be SO HELPFUL for us if kids had these labels!! Love this idea!

Chubskulit Rose said...

My son is allergc to peanut so this is perfect to have. I always buy a smilar label like this when school starts.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Can I wear them to my job and tell my boss I'm allergic to work?

Liz Mays said...

It's really nice that the labels are dishwasher and microwave safe. They could last the entire school year!

Jeannette said...

These are a great idea! Serveral of my son's friends have allergies and I am always worried about then being exposed to someone. I'd love to be able to tell more clearly if a child has allergies with these labels.

Colette S said...

These are always so very helpful!

Anonymous said...

These are great I.D's to have for a child who suffers from allergies and to let the people around them know what not to expose them too.

Adrienne P said...

Great idea. The specific listings of which foods the child cannot have is very clever.

Felicita said...

My daughter has a peanut allergy so this would be very helpful for her. They know in school but its good when she is out with friends.

ourfamilyworld said...

This is a great idea. This will be very helpful for kids with allergies. It would be too scary if they eat something that they are allergic to.

CourtneyLynne said...

This is a must have for anyone with allergies!!!! Especially kiddos!!! I don't have allergies and I don't think my daughter does, but she's only 3 so that could always change.

Susan Quackenbush said...

My granddaughter has a severe peanut allergy and this would be perfect for her. Thank you for sharing.

Franc said...

Those allergy labels would really be useful in sorting items. This can help avoid allergies for kids.

April Mims said...

That's an interesting way to let others know of your child's allergies. I was very fortunate that my kids were not allergic to anything.

mail4rosey said...

Hi Susan. Per the sponsor who was so kind to reply: the stickers are not reusable, so you cannot peel them off and re-use. They are also not machine washable. They are designed to be used on non-porous feeding items (plastic, stainless steel, etc.). Hope that helps! And I agree, these are a wonderful product for getting the word out about an allergy/allergies!

mail4rosey said...

You can, but I'm not sure it's going to get you out of work. ;)

Michele D said...

This is so important since school will be starting soon. Wonderful idea for parents!

Kerri said...

I am grateful that none of my girls have allergies however it can be so frightening for others especially when school starts up again. We all need to be aware of peanut allergies and more. As a teacher this will be so helpful to spread the word to other classmates if someone does have an allergy.

stevebethere said...

I still can't work out why your URL still doesn't show up in your comments over at mine Rosey I am totally puzzled LOL :-)

Parent Palace said...

Since our youngest has such a serious allergy, this would be wonderful for us. I really like that they are so durable because she puts durability to the test.

Jaclyn Anne said...

I checked these out and they are pretty reasonably priced as well!

Donna Jacoby said...

I liked the Bug Smarties Girls Tunic Top with Insect Shield. Thank you for the giveaway!

Sarah @ Must Have Mom said...

These are a great idea! I have a child with allergies and it's one of my biggest worries.

Breanna said...

This is seriously a FABULOUS idea! I am a 2nd grade teacher, and even at that age - kids forget and/or aren't aware of allergies, especially for others. This is a must have for anyone working with children that have allergies!

Robin said...

I am thankful that despite having her many issues, my daughter doesn't have any serious allergies. It has got to be terribly frightening as a parent.

~ Noelle said...

With so many allergic reactions going on, this is great to have.. especially with school starting back up

alissa apel said...

My Mom thinks I should wear a sulpha allergy wrist band. It's on all my doctor's charts though.

I read last year to give your child peanut butter as soon as possible. For awhile they were having them wait. So many developed allergies to peanuts because the parents waited. I waited. Mica and Isaak aren't allergic, but they do have a lot of skin allergies. It wouldn't surprise me if they are allergic to some nut or dairy.

Lauren said...

I like the backpacks.

Philip Lawrence said...

I liked The Sand-Away Beach Sheet!

Melanie Montgomery said...

I like the prices on them, very affordable.

lilyk said...

I learned that the company is located in Monroe, Wisconsin.
