Food Allergies...and Labels

Whenever I go places with the girls I always make sure that I take their own "labeled" water bottles.  I'm often afraid of another child accidentally grabbing their water bottle and mistaking it for their own.   As you know with food allergies, all it takes is for a child to drink from that water bottle and then my daughter drink from it and we are in some serious trouble. 

My brother P-touch is one of my favorite things.  I use it for EVERYTHING!  I label anything I possibly can especially food containers and cups.  I couldn't live without it and I believe that it really helps keep my daughter safe, especially at school.  If you're a mom who has a child with food allergies, you will appreciate this product! 


  1. We use a label machine as well to label all my sons food & drink. The bright yellow plastic labels will stay on even after going through the dishwasher. And the bright yellow is clearly identifiable.

  2. That's a great tip ~ the bright yellow labels. I'll have to try that. Thanks for stopping by Allergy Mum;)
