About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 21 years. The company is led by CEO Lori Torman, who has an eye for great quality and classic styles. In the early days of medical id bracelets (we're talking 1960's), medical alert bracelets were pretty boring -- basically engraved metal tags with curb link chains. The same styles were offered for children, just smaller (no wonder kids didn't want to wear them). And, by the end of the 20th century things hadn't improved that much. Lori was among the first to recognize that medical id's could be fashion conscious, and in 2005 launched designs in leather as well as stainless, and introduced polyester kids medical id bracelets that had cute designs. The sport strap line of child medical id's she introduced nearly 20 years ago is still the most popular line of children's medical jewelry on the market today. And, we now produce more than 100 different styles of medical alert bracelets and necklaces for men and women. Our engraved bracelets are individually custom engraved by our team of master engravers, ship within three (M-F) business days from the date you order, and all products come with a 90 warranty against manufacturing defects. Please come and shop with us today. It will be our pleasure to serve you.

It’s important for children to learn from an early age how food allergies affect them and the people around them so that they can keep safe and healthy. Read below for some effective ways to teach your children about food allergies.

A great place to start when teaching your children about food allergies is to first begin by educating yourself. With the evergrowing expansion of educational videos available online for free these days, it’s quite easy to learn about a variety of important subjects including food allergies. In addition to educational videos, books in hardcopy and digital versions are available at the library or at most bookstores which can help you to understand more about all the elements related to food allergies. Furthermore, you can ask your doctor and communicate with people who have food allergies to learn from their experiences.

Once you have a strong understanding of food allergies and the safety measures you should take with them, it’s time to share your wealth of knowledge with the kids.

When it comes to teaching children, it is a wise idea to use interactive exercises which they can actively participate in to help engage their learning and comprehension. Simply handing them a book and asking them to read it, especially depending on their age, may not be the best solution and it could lead to limited understandings of food allergens. However, if you take the time to make learning fun, then you’re almost guaranteed that they’ll be happy to learn all about food allergies and how they can keep themselves and their friends safe.

One of the most exciting learning activities for children to engage in is cooking. It’s fun for them because they get to eat delicious treats and they get to engage all of their senses to explore varying tastes, sights, smells, textures and more. Children enjoy helping out mom in the kitchen. It’s a positive situation where they can learn and be rewarded. This is a win-win situation for your child and yourself, because not only will you be teaching your kids about food allergies, you’ll be teaching them to cook and hopefully you’ll teach them about how easy it is to prepare healthy meals for themselves too.

For example, if your child has a peanut allergy, it’s a great idea to teach them about alternatives to peanuts such as almonds, coconuts, dates, walnuts, cashews, soy and more. By interacting with your children in the kitchen, you teach them what foods look like raw and cooked. You teach them what to look for if they have a food allergy so they know how to keep themselves safe when eating outside of your home.

Cooking with your children is hands down probably the best way to teach them about food allergies, but if you’re unable to cook with them, there are many other great resources available online and off which include illustrated books in digital and hardcopy formats. Videos about food allergies for children streamed online are another excellent way for your kids to learn. In addition to videos and books for kids, there are websites which have created customized educational puzzles and games they’ll want to play.

Take the time to educate your child and yourself –with food allergies on the rise, it’s of the utmost importance to get educated and set in place life-saving safety practices. A food allergy bracelet is a smart choice for additional food allergy safety for both kids and adults. Food allergy alert bracelets don’t have to be ugly either. Online retailers such as StickyJ Medical ID sell allergy bracelets for kids and adults that are stylish – utilizing modern trends. Their allergy alert bracelets are also durable and affordable.
