Kellogg's Releases Braille and Audio Lunch Box Notes for Visually Impaired Kids
Kellogg's wants to make sure no kid misses out on the experience of receiving a loving message in their lunch box this back-to-school season. As CNET reports, the food brand is making braille stickers and audio boxes available for free to families of visually impaired kids.
The new "Love Notes," a collaboration between Kellogg's and the National Federation of the Blind, were made with America's 62,000 blind and low-vision schoolchildren in mind. Each heart-shaped sticker in the pack comes with words of encouragement printed in braille. Messages like "You've got this," "You're the best," and "Love you lots," are meant to lift up students the same way a handwritten lunch box note would.
Kellogg's is also offering an audio box: a snack-shaped container that automatically plays a message when it's opened. Parents just press and hold the red button to record their 10-second clip and repeat the process when they want to record something different. The box can play about 1000 different messages—definitely enough to last a kid through the school year.
The 'Love Notes' are made for Rice Krispies Treats—the stickers match the heart-shaped space for notes on the packaging; the boxes are perfectly sized to fit a bar—but they can be used with a variety of snacks. You can order your free box and stickers through the Rice Krispies website.
