NOTICE

At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge. Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU. DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON THIS INFORMATION AS INGREDIENTS AND INFORMATION DO CHANGE. Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP. Thank you so much!

FREE Food Allergy Cards from BrokerFish

 
The other day, I was contacted by Chrissy Carter who is the Education Coordinator for BrokerFish.com.  She wanted to let me know that they were offering FREE Food Allergy Cards and wanted to know if I would check them out.  I was more than happy to oblige.
 
After talking with Chrissy and doing some browsing through the cards, this is what I found:
 
  1. You can get allergy card translations in the following languages: French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Thai. Though the allergy cards are designed, at this time, for English speaking travelers going abroad, they DO have plans to add English cards in the future as well as many other languages.
  2. The cards are designed for use when dining out in a foreign country to avoid eating ingredients that you shouldn't due to language barriers.  It quite literally gives you the words to say - or at least hand to your server - so that there is no confusion about what you can and cannot have.
  3. They have 8 different cards available: Dairy, Nuts, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Shellfish, Gluten and Emergency (See the sample below of the Soy Allergy Translation Card in French.). They have plans to have more allergy cards available in future, and are even currently looking into making them more interactive/customizable.
  4.  
  5. The cards are easy to understand, nicely done, printable and totally free!   You can't beat that, and if you are struggling to communicate in a foreign language, having a card you can hand your server can make all the difference and quite possibly stave off an unwanted reaction.
As I mentioned before, the cards are still in the beginning stages, but they are definitely on the right track!  If this is something you need or want or would like to share, hop on over to BrokerFish and check them out!  You won't be sorry!
