Flourishing with Food Allergies: Social, Emotional and Practical Guidance for Families with Young Children
by A. Anderson

"An important resource for parents on a most misunderstood topic.While 8% of children and 2% of adults suffer from food allergies, information available is often conflicting and difficult to sort through. Compiled by a mother of two children with food allergies who has done extensive online research into coping with allergies, this book will be very helpful to parents coping with food allergies. It includes a number of very helpful interviews with doctors and parents, discussions on shopping with food allergies in mind, and advice on coping with food allergies at birthday parties, school, and other venues."
