Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A number of books have been written about food allergies (or sensitivities), but these recipes are directed specifically at allergic children, though they could be used for adults as well. Both books offer recipes that avoid your child's particular food allergies. Meyer, the mother of allergic children, is the more health-conscious and offers unique, varied recipes. She includes suggestions for outfitting the basic pantry and kitchen when cooking for an allergic child and a section on how to tell whether your child is allergic. Harris and Nachsin, a home economist working toward certification as a nutritionist, have also raised allergic children. Because their recipes are for desserts, they contain a fair amount of oil and sugar, though fruit sweetening is also used. The authors indicate where special ingredients may be purchased and explain how to create an allergy-free home. Both books have merit, especially because little else is available on the subject, and are recommended for all health collections. (Indexes not seen.)?Lorraine F.

This book has helped the most when I need a substitution or need help reading labels for all the many names which food allergens hide under. In this respect, I think the book is the best. I did find the authors writing style to be somewhat offensive to those of us who are entering the cooking scene. She has a way of making readers feel bad for not homecooking every morsel our children ingest. Also, I found that many of the main and side dish recipes were pretty standard fare. Like I stated earlier though, her substitution list and label names under which the allergens are hiding is very helpful as I read labels at the supermarket. I find alot of prepared products which are allergy free for my child by reading labels carefully and the lists and resources in this book are indispensible for that purpose.

A particularly good book for parents who are just starting to diagnose and/or attempt to deal with a child's allergies. The author has crammed this book full of helpful advice and references as well as delicious and easy recipes that kids (and adults) enjoy. Recipes for basic items like baking powder and ketchup are included. This is one of the three books we recommend to other parents of kids with food allergies.

It's not a bad start for feeding kids with allergies, but it didn't go very far. We can't have almonds, so many recipes didn't work for us. Moreover, there wasn't even a hint at the broad range of ethnic foods which might be great to try.

This is a great book! Parents & friends of children with allergies will feel that they have an ally in author Elisa Meyer, who has two allergic children of her own. The recipes are delicious, imaginative, and within your reach--try the salads, the soups, and of course, the cookies!--it's all great. Whether you're just realizing you have allergies to cope with, or you're looking for some new things to try, this practical, direct, and fun cookbook is a gem.

Format: Paperback
I wanted to like this book, but just can't. The author is condescending at best and downright insulting at worst. I think it's safe to assume that anyone buying a cookbook can um - cook! She also uses butter in every other recipe, but according to the book her kids are allergic to dairy. I don't get it. She's also a little off the deep end, she basically goes off on the entire food industry as if they are trying to kill her little darlings on purpose. Then there is a section where she goes off on a tangent about the dangers of using a grill - then she actually has the audacity to provide a recipe for grilling hotdogs and hamburgers! As if I need a cookbook for that. The other problem that I have with the book is that nearly every recipe centers around a sauce made with dijon mustard, olive oil and copious amounts of lemon juice. I'm very allergic to lemon juice, so in all honesty my ability to use this cookbook is almost non-existant.
