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.

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!
