Peanut Butter? Not for that guy!

I love love love peanut butter. If any of my kids ever develop an allergy to it, I don't know what I'd do. I was on an airplane once and they announced at the beginning of the flight to avoid eating anything with peanuts in it (you know how the air recirculates constantly) because we had someone on the plane with a severe peanut allergy. I was starving, but all I had was a peanut butter Nature Valley granola bar. I was good and managed to muster my way through the flight without it, but it makes you think about how bad those allergies can really be. Had they not made a special announcement, I would have likely eaten that granola bar and that person would have been in big trouble.... which brings me to Jeeto!

Jeeto! makes patches, stickers and tee shirts with cute cartoons alerting people of special allergies. Sew them onto your kids backpack and any literate adult will know what the deal is. Genius! Now, let's hope my kids never need 'em... because I'd miss my peanut butter banana sandwiches.
