Allerbuddies – Educating Families About Allergies

by kateG (follow)
I am constantly amazed at the increased number of kids who are being diagnosed with an allergy.



Research shows that, in general, allergies, particularly food, are becoming more common amongst young kids.

According to Better Health Channel, around 60 per cent of allergies manifest themselves on the first year of a child’s life. Surprisingly, the most common early childhood allergy is cow’s milk.

It’s now commonplace for parents to ask whether a child has an allergy when they are invited over for a playdate. There is no doubt that we, as parents, have accepted this as normal.

But sometimes it’s not this simple, if we don’t have the opportunity to ask a parent or a child, how do we know that a child has an allergy?

Even though Melbourne Mum, Viktoria Komornik’s young daughter does not have any known allergies, she wants to help those families that do.

So, Viktoria has created a community space where the whole family can learn about allergies called AllerBuddies.

As part of AllerBuddies, Viktoria has created a character called Dr Willow who is a cute wombat. Dr Willow aims to help explain allergies to children and adults.



Dr Willow also features on AllerBuddies’ brightly coloured medical alert bracelets. These specially designed soft PVC bracelets are for a child with an allergy or medical condition to wear to show others what their allergy is.

Viktoria says: “I wanted to make it fun for families and to enable them to have necessary resources at their fingertips. I feel it’s our responsibility as parents to teach our children about their health, allergies even if they are not the one living with them.”

So far the range includes:
• Wheat
• Soy
• Shellfish
• Sesame
• Peanut
• Tree Nuts
• Egg
• Milk
• Fish
• Asthma

AllerBuddies is committed to constantly grow their product range to include a wider range of allergies and medical conditions.

AllerBuddies recommends that families keep spares at home, we all know that kids lose things very easily! Also, parents may wish to consider keeping spares bracelets at grandparents, childcare, kinder, school, sports groups etc.

To celebrate their launch, AllerBuddies is offering free shipping on orders of two or more bracelets.
