The Allergy Adventures website is a fun resource for kids and parents. You may have seen them at the Allergy and Free From Show. It was set up by Hailey after her experience of her niece growing up with an egg allergy and herself having coeliac disease.
There are activities for kids to download or do online and a range of books (£6.99) and food safety stickers (£1.99) which are available from the online shop.
Each Allergy Adventures book features a loveable character with a food allergy. Like Didge, join her on a dairy-free adventure to the zoo! Find out what happens when she meets a beetroot monkey that dances on his jacket potato bed and chats to a seal that rides a fruit smoothie wave. As the characters go on adventures, they learn how to manage their allergies, keep themselves safe, and still have lots of fun. The books have rhymes and fun activities for the kids as well as a really quirky fun design!
For parents, there is useful advice, personal stories, and contacts page. It is refreshing to come across a site which puts a fun positive twist on raising awareness and managing allergies. These books are great for the home and perfect to raise awareness in nursery and schools.
