CINCINNATI - There's a new line of shirts for parents with children who have allergies.

The "Don't Feed Me" shirts were designed by Kym Whitley to alert people of a child's food allergy. Whitley is a comedian, reality television star and mother of a little boy with a peanut allergy.

You can fill in the child's name and check the boxes of what they are allergic to. Whitley first designed the shirt for her son to wear to day care. This was after a nanny accidentally fed her son peanut butter.

Whitley's reality show, "Raising Whitley" debuts April 20 on the Oprah Winfrey Network. It follows her life as a single mother raising her adopted son.

The shirts are being sold for $10 on the Don't Feed Me Website .

CDC numbers show that about 3 million children in the U.S. has a food or digestive allergy.

Her son Joshua is also allergic to chicken, corn, shellfish and peaches.
