In celebration of Valentine’s Day, My Kid’s Food Allergies is pleased to introduce many allergy-safe products from our partners in the food allergy community.
While these products are great for any time of year, the sweet treats, kitchen and cooking accessories, apparel and other items you’ll find in their stores—made especially for families with food allergies—make perfect gifts for your Valentines of all ages. And as gifts to all of us, these companies have generously offered discounts for the upcoming holiday.

They’ve created these functional and fun items with the goal of empowering kids who have food allergies and helping them be safe by reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
