It’s October! Time to start planning for the spookiest time of year – Halloween!
You’ve likely heard of the teal pumpkin movement. Be sure to get your paints early so you aren’t scrambling at the last minute.
If looking for a soundtrack to your Halloween allergy awareness fun, look no further!
10 years ago I started http://www.allergytranslation.com and couldn’t be more proud on how the site has grown and developed through the years.
It’s amazing how much has changed in 10 years on the Internet and have loved keeping up with it all. This is especially true in the last year by prioritizing in a smartphone app.
Watch the video above to learn more about it, but essentially it’s handy way to communicate your food allergies in foreign languages right on your smartphone.

Greetings! I’m happy to announce that I will be back in California performing at schools in February, 2018. As always, my assemblies encompass strong messages of allergy education and anti-bullying, all while promoting understanding and empathy to students. Of course, it’s presented in a fun way with music, trivia and puppets!
I only have a few available dates left. Please get in touch if you’re school is interested and I can send along more information about exact availability for your area and fees.
- February 20 – 23 – SoCal
- February 26 – March 1 – Bay Area
Back at it for Food Allergy Awareness Month (Canada)/ Week (U.S.)! This time I will be crossing the U.S. from Chicago over to New York, available at every spot in between.
To find out my exact availability, shoot me over an email and I will get back to you right away.
It’s the real teal deal folks!
Back to school for many means buying new pencils, outfits and school supplies. For those affected by allergies, there is another element – making sure your child, your child’s teacher and the full school environment is prepared for a new school year of allergy safety.
It’s important to set the tone at the start of the year with food allergy awareness so students all understand what is/is not acceptable. The “Kyle Dine & Friends” DVD is an easy way to educate students just by pressing play. It covers all of the essential info for grades K-6, plus it’s incredibly interactive and features zany puppets, funky tunes and games.
I’m happy to offer a back to school allergy awareness bundle to help get allergy awareness off to a great start in your school!
For $25 you will receive:
- Kyle Dine & Friends DVD
- 3 posters “Food Allergies are No Joke”
- 3 posters “Food Allergies – Take Note”
