Food Allergies Stink, and I Don’t Like Foods That Make Me Sick! ~Niko Vento
My son must state that phrase about 10 times daily as he is plagued with food allergies, some of which are life threatening. We had no idea that a few years ago when he told us his tongue was numb after eating some chocolate that his whole life was about to change. No cool looking foods, no cool packages and surely nothing really great tasting! I was about to change the taste of all his foods and give him things he could eat but it was a challenge. Being handed a list of food allergies about a mile long really was not a 7 year old’s most exciting moment and being banned from eating, mostly everything FUN that young kids eat is a serious morale downer! What is a mom to do?
I have had to change everything that my son eats, and I have to inspect every package for every detailed ingredient because one ingredient can have a drastic change on how his day may progress. I have been creating fun things for my son to eat and writing notes on his bags! I want him to feel good about what he is eating, not odd because his packed food does not look like the other kids foods that have brightly colored bags and fun foods in them. Sometimes I get crazy and put a sticker on the wax paper or plastic bags just to make the bag look nicer. I don’t have to do that anymore.
Have you ever heard of WEXY BAGS ? These are Lunch and Munch Bags that come in packs of 28 and have 4 Funky Monsters on them! The bags are BPA FREE, Biodegradable and Made in the USA. The same type of story that I just recanted for you about food allergies is pretty close to the reasons these MOMS created these great bags!. When I was sent a box of these to try, I knew that they were going to make a difference in how my son viewed the foods in his lunch bucket, and snack containers.
Wexy Bags are not only good for the environment, but they are a good moral booster for children who can’t normally have fun bags, because of allergies. I like the bags because they can be used more than one time! The bags are a nice texture but they are not Clear, they are white. Each bag has a Funky Monster on it. Each monster is named.
Meet the monsters:
Sammy the Surfer : Gluten free and dairy free
Scout the Soccer Player: loves to cook healthy and recipes that make food healthy
Bailey the Bubble Maker: loves organic foods
Dusty the Diver: raw foods make Dusty Happy.
The bags can individualize food or just be used as fun looking monsters decorating the bag, making the food inside MORE exciting! The bags are the fun, the food will make a difference! Together Wexy Bags and you can create food that wins your little ones over with healthy ingredients.
Each day I make new snack and a treat and he guesses what he thinks is in the bag. There is so much excitement and he is truly happy with his new snack bags. It keeps him eating and it keeps me creating because I know he will eat what I have put in the bag because he feels it is special like the other bags he has seen. I am so thankful to have learned about Wexy Bags! Thank you for making foods more pleasurable to a child that has had so much stripped away from him.
