For teachers, school nurses, educators and child care providers the cards are a great teaching tool. They introduce, cross-contamination, the importance of label reading, and carrying emergency medication. They do this in an easy to read format with colorful graphics for the children, and informational teaching tips on the back.
When used in a classroom setting, or with friends and family, they provide the education necessary to create a supportive and helpful environment rather than one that may single a child out.
