About us


Thank you for visiting! 
I am Michelle and a mum of 2 boys. Bertie is 3 and Wilf is 1. 

Allergy PenPals launched in March 2022 after finding out that my eldest son had an egg, tree nut and peanut allergy. My son Bertie was due to start nursery and would be in somebody else's care for the first time that were not us or grandparents. I wanted to design allergy alerts that were fun, kid-friendly but would help keep little ones safe whilst they were out and about whether that's at school, nursery, a party, softplay or playgroup. Being an allergy parent, I fully understand the worry, stress, anxiety, guilt and how overwhelming it can be at times. My aim is to raise awareness for kids with allergies and to help give parents a little bit of a peace of mind.
