Eating Safely ... In Any Language
Item: Food Allergy Cards
Where to Buy: SelectWisely
Review: When you have food allergies, the scariest place in a foreign country can be its restaurants.
It's hard enough to get some servers in the US to understand that my husband is deathly allergic to nuts. Now imagine trying to express it in another language.
That's where these food allergy cards come in. Available for dozens of allergies, the cards describe the allergy in any of 15 languages. And they're laminated for easy conveyance in your wallet or purse.
Relying on pantomimes isn't a good idea when it comes to food allergies. A food allergy card can make the difference between a relaxing vacation and one spent in the hospital.
