Childhood Allergies – Easy2name help with Allergy wrist bands

Kids Wristbands for Traveling

 

Childhood Allergies – the facts:

Did you know that almost 50% of children in the UK have allergies, and for those affected this can mean a daily battle of trying to keep symptoms under control.

Allergy is when the body has a reaction to a protein (e.g. foods, insect stings, pollens and antibiotics). These substances are called allergens, and for most people they are harmless. Common things that cause allergic reactions include: food (e.g. peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat and fish), pollens from tree and grasses, house dust mite and insect stings.

Allergy symptoms:

Allergic symptoms can affect the nose, throat, ears, eyes, airways, digestion and skin in mild, moderate or severe form.

These symptoms can go largely unnoticed until a child has been suffering with the problem for some time. However, the consequences of suffering with one, or several, of these symptoms every day can cause a child to struggle with their schooling and other general abilities. Concentration levels can be reduced from lack of sleep, or simply from having the symptoms.

Diagnosis and treatment:

The most important fact to remember is that if a child does develop an allergy, with early diagnosis and treatment of this condition, it will be easier to manage the symptoms and help minimise their effects on the child’s daily life. Look to www.allergyuk.org for more information.

Choosing Clothing Labels for Children

As we get ready to return to the new school term, parents are getting ready for “back to school” by planning and purchasing uniforms and athletic kit for the year. But who has the time to sew labels into children’s clothing?

Apparently Kate and Pippa Middleton’s Mom. According to a recent post in The Guardian “How Do You Label Your Children’s Clothes” Mom’s everywhere are struck with the task of not only sending their children to school with the appropriate uniform or kit, but ensuring that those articles actually return home. In an interview with Tatler Magazine, Carole Middleton admitted to hand sewing her children’s name into their clothing each year.

It sounds like a lot of work doesn’t it? Why bother labelling the clothing at all? Well, being a Mum of four boys makes me an expert on the topic, and the Easy2name business was set up in 2000 inspired by my own struggle to keep track of my children’s belongings. We make and dispatch labels every day for nursery, school, care home and craft use, we can even make labels with your own team or business logo as well. Continue reading »

 

Lunchbox Labels for Safety:

Advice for Children with Allergies

If you are a parent with a child who suffers from moderate to severe food allergies, sending a special lunch to school is often the best preventative measure to ensure your child’s safety. Not only can you plan a meal that is healthy but also closely monitor what your child is eating to avoid reactions to other foods that may contain allergens. If a child has a significant risk of anaphylaxis, it is the first line of defence.

However carefully you monitor what your child eats there is always the concern that they will come into contact with allergens outside the home, and the highest risk of that occurring is during the school day. While teachers and lunch supervisors do their best to adhere to allergy precautions, there is a chance that your child’s lunch may become misplaced or mixed up with someone else. And while that is a minor inconvenience for most children, for a child with severe food allergies it can be life threatening.
What steps can parents take to further reduce the risk of severe allergic reaction to food during the school day? There are a number of ways in fact to help ensure your child avoids unknown foods as well as ways to help educate your child to understand why they need to be careful.
