back to school products

Changes in weather, back-to-school germs, commuter travel, jobs in health care, stress and allergies are just a few of the factors working against you in the cold- and flu-avoidance areas.  Bottom line, if your immune system is shaky and you hang around a lot of people, you’re wide open for a virus.   And if you’re a stressed out school nurse that takes the train to work, well, um . . . good luck.  :)

The key to prevention is protection.  But with more than 200 strains of cold virus and three types of  flu viruses floating around it’s no wonder that so many people catch these highly contagious bugs.  All you have to do is inhale infected air, share infected items or touch tainted surfaces then touch your hands to your nose, eyes or mouth and BAM, the virus is yours.  Flu shots are formulated to prevent Types A and B viruses, but can’t touch Type C.  And the common cold, well, the causes of 30% to 50% of adult colds remain a mystery.

Allegro’s Cold/Flu Season Category has a wide selection of products to help prevent and relieve cold and flu symptoms.  Ideal for everyone from individuals to caregivers, schools, offices, stores, clinics, homes and hospitals – it’s time for everyone to take stock and be prepared.

DRI Sleeper Alarm System

Quit Wettin’ the Bed, Fred

The start of a new school year is stressful for everyone, but even more so for families with bed wetters. Besides the lack of sleep and overall frustration you’re ALL feeling, your child is also likely dealing with significant emotional and social issues associated with bed wetting.

If you are tired of the stress (and mess), try a bedwetting alarm as a training tool. 

Bed wetting alarms detect moisture and awaken the child when just a drop or two of urine hits the sensor pad.  They are worn in the child’s undergarments.  Check out the unisex DRI Sleeper Alarm System.  There is also a Nite Train’r for Males and a Nite Train’r for Females.

Crissy, an Allegro customer from Fullerton, CA says, “Our six year old son never had dry nights, even as a preschooler. He is a very sound sleeper, but after two nights he began waking up to the alarm…he has had three dry nights during the third week of use.”

Don’t wait until you’re at the end of your rope. Hopefully a bedwetting alarm will quickly let you remove bedwetting from the list of stressors in the morning rush to school.

Pediasure - Nutritional Drink - 8 oz Ready-to-Drink Bottles

No more Starvin’, Marvin

If you know, or suspect, or have been told that little Suzy is not getting enough calories, there is a simple answer. Supplement their meals with balanced shakes, juice drinks or puddings. We have a complete selection of Child Nutrition products – our most popular being Pediasure, Boost Kid Essentials, and Boost Pudding.

These products cover picky eaters, skinny kids, special needs, gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, reduced appetite, super-active, low-weight, chronic illnesses, short-term illnesses, malnutrition – pretty much everything. There’s no reason for you to worry about Junior getting enough to eat.  Kids love this stuff.

    Even if you’ve already invested in a backpack, you may consider swapping it out for one with back saving technology. Did I mention that it makes you stand up straight? The bonuses never end.

     

    Stop Missin’ the Bus, Gus

    (school morning dialog without the Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock):
    Time to wake up! Sweetie, get up… Get up, please. C’mon now, up, up, up. You’re going to be late for school…. (5 minutes later) Don’t make me come in there. Get…up…NOW.

    (school morning dialog WITH the Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock):
    Well, aren’t you on the ball today! Holy moley, you’re dressed already. What a great kid. (smiles, whistling, high fives ensue)

    Having a hard time waking them up? Fear not. Blast ‘em out of bed with a Sonic Bomb alarm clock. There’s even a Sonic Boom Sweetheart Alarm Clock to wake your sleeping beauty.

    Really, they’re not as scary as they sound and we sell a ton of them so they must work. Allegro Medical product manager Mike Benge wakes up to the Sonic Bomb every morning.  He says, “It’s like a freight train coming at me. Lights are flashing, the bed is shaking, and the sound is like nothing you’ve ever heard.”

    You can set these clocks to do all kinds of things – loud or not so much. I have the Portable Vibrating Travel Alarm that gently vibrates my pillow so I don’t wake up all freaked out. Ahhhhh. No noise – but I could add noise if I wanted.  And for all you do, Soccer Mom, you deserve a nice gradual awakening with the Sunrise Alarm Clock.  

    Hate running to catch the bus?  How about chasing your alarm clock instead?  This one jumps from the nightstand and runs away.  Seriously!  It’s called the Chrome Clocky Mobile Alarm Clock.  Makes a great gift.
