Information Card

Recommended Posts

Is there any kind of small card that you can give to your server w/ a basic description of the problem (celiac disease) and how the food needs to be prepared (plain, no marinades, no contact w/ wheat, gluten products, or a surface where wheat, gluten had been ect) I am finding the servers mean well but like the game of telephone information is not presented in its original form! My friend said she knew someone who had something like this that she handed to the server which was shown in the kitchen.

Any ideas? It is for my son which if he is w/ friends or another family at a restuarant he can pass it off himself. Peace of mind for me I guess!! lol


It will be one year since my 13 yr old was diagnosed-doing good. Hoping my other two remain ok with gluten. Grateful for all the help!

Yes, there is. Triumph Dining Card are a series of laminated cards in several different languages. They are running a promotion currently. You can find it at www.triumphdining.com.

I have used mine frequently and I highly recommend them.

PM me and I will send you their promotional information.

I second the endorsement for Triumph. They hold up well, are translated into a bunch of different languages, and I've had a great response to them. Just used one this weekend, in fact.

gluten-free since 7/23/05

Never felt better.

Oops now I see MommaGoose already answered.

But what the heck, I'll copy here what Laura (Happygirl) posted elsewhere for the promo.

Another (free) option is to go to www.foodallergybuddy.com. You can customize your information and print out a whole page of food allergy alert cards. This is sponsored by the National Restaurant Association. I have used this with success when I can tell my server isn't familiar with food allergies or Celiac issues.

I bought the inexpensive laminating covers at Staples so that my card always comes back to me after the chef has been made aware.

Hope this helps!
