I have been using your food allergy cards for at least 8 years and am a huge fan. Thank you so much for allowing me to follow my husband on expat assignments to Germany and now China and still be able to eat out and travel extensively. I have bought new cards because I have developed new food allergies but also have purchased them for my daughters and recommended them to MANY expats in both countries - including my nephew who is here in China as well with an allergic son. These food allergy cards give me a great deal of confidence when eating out and the Chinese here in Shanghai have been very attentive to my dietary concerns. Thanks, again!

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.

Throughout my life, my severe food allergy to nuts have made me fearful to travel, particularly in countries where I don't speak the language. After reading my food allergy cards the waitstaff always went out of their way to make sure that all of my food was cooked and served without any contact with any of the foods that I am allergic to. We were still, of course, cautious when eating--we stayed away from food stalls and buffets, and we were always insistent that the waiter show the food allergy card to the cook. The cards proved to be one of the best purchases I have ever made.

We wanted to let you know how grateful we were to have my husband's food allergies translated into Spanish and Italian. We used your Italian food allergy cards constantly on our trip, as there were numerous occasion when English was not spoken. They were also a tremendous 'ice-breaker'... in one friendly Italian restaurant, the waiter (after he read all of the allergies) threw up his hands, said 'vino' and brought a bottle of wine saying that's all he could have!

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!
