Allergy Sense: For families: a practical guide
Allergies are increasing at a rapid rate and the team of experts behind Allergy Sense are here to break them down for families, ensuring people have up to date, and scientifically vetted, information.
A lack of easily accessible and accurate information about particular allergies can exacerbate the anxiety of discovering a new food allergy or your child’s food allergy. Protecting your health, or your child’s health while also maintaining a level of ‘normality’ as a family can become an all-consuming focus. The authors of this book, an allergy specialist, a paediatric dietitian and an occupational therapist collaborate to unpack the difficulties in identifying specific allergies, prevent picky eating in children and guide you to live and eat as a family within the context of this challenge. As well as explaining the background and offering solutions Allergy Sense includes 70 delicious recipes for all the family to try at home.
