My daughter did great in China with her food choices. She enjoyed the most freedom she has ever experienced eating out in restaurants. Dairy is used very infrequently in Chinese cooking; however, when needed, the food allergy cards were of great help. The Chinese were very intrigued with the cards. Several people commented that the translations were very accurate and precise! Thank you so much for providing this service; it is well needed and very useful!

Just to let you know that the cards I ordered in March were amazing. I had my son's food allergies to milk, eggs and nuts translated into Thai by you. We used them everywhere we went and couldn't have survived without them. The staff in the resort in Phuket took the cards to the kitchen and managed to provide safe meals for my son. We did have an incident at breakfast and we think the Special K cereal may have been cross contaminated with nuts. My son had a severe anaphylactic allergy reaction so we used your Emergency card to get us to the hospital. The hotel staff got us a taxi immediately, the taxi driver read the Emergency card and got us to the hospital very quickly. The doctors read the food allergy cards and understood what was going on. They treated him instantly. In summary your food allergy cards and emergency cards were a life-saver for us. Thank you very much. It is a great service you provide.

My recent trip to Italy was a great success thanks to your Italian Strongly Worded food allergy card on peanut/peanut oil. The very first day I used it, the waiter told me that when he showed the card to the chef, the chef told him that I could not eat their pizza because peanut oil is used in the dough. That came as quite a surprise as I had never heard of using peanut oil in dough, but it shows how invaluable the food allergy card is. The cards also proved useful when ordering gelato because of possible cross contamination. The gelato store manager stated that I was safe eating only the fruited gelatos. I highly recommend the use of these life-saving food allergy cards when traveling to any foreign country.

I have just returned from trip to Vietnam and would like to express my upmost gratitude. When showing your food allergy cards at restaurants, the waitstaff spent a lot of time studying the cards. Often they would consult the chef but surprised me was the limited food I could eat. I realized how much fish and shellfish are in dishes that you would least expect - especially in Asian cuisine. If I did not have the food allergy cards with me, I am not sure what would have honestly happened so I am really thankful.

You have made my day! Your food allergy cards in Russian arrived in this morning's mail. Yes, in England we get mail on a Saturday and I couldn't be happier about the envelope from your organisation that dropped through my door this morning. The cards are perfect: clear, concise, informative and easy to read. I've had cards in other languages from other places which aren't nearly as good and don't give the kind of no-nonsense information with translations underneath so the person with the card knows exactly what message they are giving.
