Remember the days when mom used to pin a note to your lunch bag with instructions for the teacher? Not any more. The new “Don’t Feed Me” allergy alert shirts are starting to take off with parents who have kids with serious food allergies.

The shirts, developed by comedian/actress Kym Whitley developed the shirts for her son Joshua who has an egg allergy. The shirt has a place to write in a child’s name and then check off a box with some of the more common food allergies. There are also 4 write in boxes if your child’s allergy isn’t on the shirt.

Whitley is selling the shirts on her website Dontfeedme.org for $10 a piece. (The Site is currently down. You can see the shirts here)

Whitley first brought the shirts to her son’s daycare and she told ABCNews.com the other parent’s were asking about them.

“The other parents were like, ‘Oh my God that’s great, we need that,” said Whitley.

Whitley is preparing to debut her newest reality show “Raising Whitley” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The show focus’ on her raising her adopted son.

At least 3 million American children have allergies involving food, according to the ABCNews article.
