Books for Kids with Food Allergies

Books for Kids with Food Allergies

For a child, reading a story about someone else with food allergies can help solidify what it means to be allergic. It can make your child feel not-so-alone when dealing with everyday situations such as school, parties, playing with friends, eating at restaurants, and more.

From the time my son had his first allergic reaction at 2 years old, I have been on the lookout for allergy books for him. It’s the best way for kids to understand what is happening. They can look at the pictures and listen to the story about someone else who is allergic as well… someone they could relate to, be it a chipmunk, a cow, a cute kid, etc.

Peanut and Nut Allergy Books for Kids

Peanut and nut allergies are the most common allergens that kid’s allergy books target, but they are definitely NOT the only allergies. Look through the selection below and find something that works for your family.

Adaptable Kid’s Allergy Book

Does your child have multiple food allergies or does it contain some uncommon foods? I totally understand.

Both of my kid’s have multiple food allergies. They each have a long list and it made picking a book for them very difficult.

Not to be defeated, my daughter and I have created the perfect book for your child. The main character will have the same allergic foods and allergic symptoms as your own child. Just grab a pen and fill in the blanks directly in the book so the allergic food(s) match yours!

The Allergic Princess and The Allergic Prince

FOR GIRLS:
the allergic princess
Princess Isabella has food allergies. When she is tempted by unfamiliar foods, will she make the right choice to keep herself safe?
FOR BOYS:
the allergic prince
Prince Ethan has food allergies. When he is tempted by unfamiliar foods, will he make the right choice to keep himself safe?

The Allergic Princess and The Allergic Prince by Jennifer and Keira Chung is a delightful book that parents can read to their children with food allergies to make them more aware and confident in handling their food allergies when away from home. The book also teaches young children about the importance of always carrying an injectable epinephrine and using it during severe allergic reactions.

* The books contain the same story line. The Princess version has girls as the main characters whereas The Prince version has boys as the main characters.
