Millions of children across the country have food sensitivities or allergies, and the number is on the rise.

Divided into three sections-- snacks, main dishes, and treats--this book also provides information about how to find what you need in a regular grocery store, instead of requiring a separate trip to the natural foods store. With the recipes in this book, even the most sensitive child will get a cookie too.

Parent's Guide to Food Allergies: Clear and Complete Advice from the Experts on Raising Your Food Allergic Child
Marianne S. Barber

January 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Few things are scarier than witnessing a child having an allergic reaction, whether it manifests itself as wheezing or life-threatening anaphylaxis. Parents will do anything to avoid having their child suffer such a reaction again, but treading the line between being prepared and being paranoid can be tricky. The Parent's Guide to Food Allergies was written by a team of people who shared their expertise from the medical lab and the kitchen; two M.D.s and one Ph.D. collaborated with author Marianne Barber, the mother of a food-allergic son, who writes with a personal slant so often absent from medical guides. Barber understands the daily coping skills that are needed when living with an allergic child, from banning particular foods entirely to reading ingredient labels.

Especially common allergens like peanuts, wheat,...



Food Allergies and Food Intolerance: The Complete Guide to Their Identification and Treatment
Jonathan Brostoff
0892818751
May 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This third edition updates a work originally published in 1989 as The Complete Guide to Food Allergy and Intolerance. Brostoff, a recognized authority on food allergy and author of numerous research studies, and Gamlin, a biochemist and journalist, clarify the difference between allergy and intolerance, explaining the immunological processes underlying hypersensitivity. Drawing on recent research, they identify common allergens and common treatment options. The authors also present a very detailed elimination diet and reintroduction schedule, their recommended method of diagnosing food intolerances. The text is detailed and thorough in the topics covered but lacks a satisfactory examination of alternative and/or complementary practices (many of which are excellent resources for allergy sufferers).
