The AAIA has new information posters available through their website. I plan to buy some for our school. One deals with milk allergies and there is another on egg allergies. The website is:

13 year old daughter -- lives with life-threatening allergies to milk, tree nuts and peanuts; seasonal allergies (birch, maple, ragweed); pet allergies; asthma; and eczema
10 year old son - no allergies

I like those posters!
I also like the patch that indicates you carry an Epi-Pen. That would be handy to sew to a coat.
It's not so obvious in the winter months.

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

I'm going to buy the egg and milk ones for my dd's school. Other parents just don't get it... the reminder can't hurt.

Thanks. Last time I had looked at their products I was saddened to see the strictly peanut messaging. While it is unfortunate they need to branch out, it works in our favour! Raising awareness is so important - we confront "Really?" so much when advising that our dd is ana to her allergens - many people still seem to assume that you can only be ana to peanuts, nuts and bee stings

daughter: ana for egg, sesame, dairy, pistachio/cashew/hazelnut. on contact. allergic+ to soy protein isolate, environmental allergies (e.g. dogs, dust mites). asthma. eczema.
son: peanuts, tree-nuts, OAS, environmental allergies. asthma.
