Safe & Happy Family Product Review and Giveaway #MySafeFamily

I am very picky about the products I choose to review – I only review products that are appropriate for a food allergy audience and that I think you will love. When Safe & Happy Family asked me if I’d like a sample of one of their food allergy plates to review I was skeptical until I checked out their website. I immediately fell in love with the idea and the designs, and I think you will too!


Disclosure: Safe & Happy Family sent me a plate to review and they are giving one away to a reader here.

Before I transformed my meals to be completely allergen-free, I had to contend with the “separate plate” phenomenon – making sure that the one dish that must be allergen-free was indeed safe. It never occurred to me to use a different plate (a concept that leading food allergy chain restaurants are embracing) – perhaps that was because I didn’t have one of these beauties:


If you are preparing separate meals, I always recommend preparing the food allergy plate first. But I know I’ve had occasions where I had four plates on the counter and then completely forgot which one had the casserole prepared without dairy… it’s easy to do. That’s just one of the reasons I love these plates.

These 10-inch plates are just the right size for any meal. (Some designs also come in a smaller 8-inch size and sets are available too!) They wash beautifully and are dishwasher safe (I know, there’s new research that says those who don’t use the dishwasher may have fewer allergies, but we already have allergies and the dishwasher can sanitize). They are BPA-free. (They can’t be used in a microwave.)

The designs are beautiful. I love the use of our favorite food-allergy teal color across the patterns. I chose the “retro green” for my review, but here are a few others you might like:



I made pancakes from The Allergy-Free Pantry with blackberry maple syrup topping.


To make the syrup: mash 5-6 blackberries in a small saucepan, add ½ cup maple syrup and warm it up.

Now, for the giveaway:

One lucky reader will win a 10-inch food allergy plate from Safe & Happy Family.

No later than April 1st at midnight
(yup, April Fool’s Day, but no fooling on the giveaway) leave a comment here about why you think you'd love these plates.

For extra entries:

1. Share this post on facebook with hashtag #MySafeFamily and @SafeHappyFamily (leave a separate comment here that you did so).

2. Share on twitter with hashtag #MySafeFamily and @SafeHappyFamily (leave a separate comment here that you did so).

One winner will be randomly chosen and announced on April 2nd. (Please make sure I have a way to contact you.) The winner can choose the retro-green pattern or another 10-inch plate (value $21.50).


And, in case you don’t make it over to the website, I need to show you this mug that I adore:


I know dozens of food allergy moms that need that mug!!

I have never seen plates like this before and this is TRULY amazing! For the past 9 months I have been going through a food elimination trial to try and figure out what causes migraines. Good news I have found several significant triggers! Bad news, it is taking a lot longer than expected & I still have quite a few ingredients left.
My friends and family have lovingly (mostly) embraced my "hitlist" that changes by the month and attempt to cook for me. But it would be great to have a plate to bring with me to designate as a convo starter & education moment. To emphasize the lifestyle change and necessity that this process has become. Thank you for posting about this and for having this blog. Your blog is one of several that I follow for inspiration on recipes and tweak accordingly so that my food options aren't as sparse!

I would love to have a plate like this! My daughter (7 years old) has an anaphylactic reaction to dairy and this plate would be so helpful at family gatherings! I love the mugs too!

I would love to win this for my friend whose daughter has severe allergies. Her daughter often doesn't eat because she is scared of having a reaction. These plates are great and I think would encourage her to eat more.
