STATkids® is committed to promoting the health and safety of children. For children with food allergies, Celiac Disease, Asthma, Diabetes, Autism, and other issues, the most critical component to their safety is making sure those around them are alerted to their needs. STATkids® provides practical, age-appropriate, kid-friendly products that raise awareness of children’s specific health concerns and facilitate the management of emergency situations. From specially-sized, comfortable, red silicone wristbands that boldly state each child’s particular food allergy to bright red lunch bags that contain a health alert when mealtime is a high-risk activity, the STATkids® strategy is working to make kids safer.
Parents will be relieved to know that when a substitute teacher enters their child’s classroom, the STATkids™ 8 1/2″ X 11″ poster clearly and quickly identifies him by name, photo and specific food allergy or other health concern.
For children who require emergency medication, such as an Epi-Pen® or Inhaler, STATkids™ provides the simple solution to keeping it immediately accessible. A bright red, personalized travel pack stays with the teacher or caregiver at all times–on the playground, during a field trip, or in a school assembly–and not locked in a cabinet or left in a desk drawer.
STATkids® understands the difficulties parents face when trying to make others aware of their children’s food allergies and other health issues. It is a daunting task, especially when one considers all the teachers, lunch room aides, coaches, tutors, babysitters, friends and family members who spend time with their children.
STATkids® products are being used by many schools, child care centers and summer camps to ensure that they are providing safe environments for the children in their care. STATkids® also partners with corporations, both for profit and non-profit, to provide information, resources, and innovative and effective tools to help protect young children. We have and will continue to develop new and useful products and strategies to help protect these kids.
