"Food Allergies and Me teaches kids essential safety knowledge in a relatable, engaging way, which will help them build knowledge and awareness in explaining their food allergy to others..." -- Calorielab.com

I was looking for a book that explained food allergies on a preschooler level to read to my daughter's pre-k class. I searched forever for a book that got to the point but did not scare the living daylights out of the children with shots and ambulance rides, etc. This book takes the reader through a day in the life of a child with food allergies. It is witty and explains to the child why they it is important to be a "food detective" to ensure the safety of the product. I found it helpful that it explains why children with food allergies have to have a special snack to be certain it is allergen free. Simply put it got to the point, explained that food allergies could make the person sick, and ended with everyone is unique and children with food allergies are not wierd just that they have to do other things to make sure they stay safe just like everyone else. I highly recommend this book for little ones!

This book could not be better for your food allergy child. I read it to my 3-year-old at least twice a day. It makes food allergies seem like just another part of life...not a huge deal. I LOVE that. I have been looking for a book like this for months and couldn't be more pleased with it.
It doesn't go on and on about how "special" you are b/c you have food allergies. Jack, the boy in the book has them, he deals with them.....he moves on with life. It's perfect!

I really like this book and have come to like it more so as we have read many in this genre now. It is very low-key, told in the voice of a school boy as he goes through his day. It makes the allergies a part of life, rather than the main part, and although it mentions avoiding, getting sick, etc it is done in a casual and relaxed way. My kids like this one as well. This would be a great book to read to a classroom for some education and awareness, probably best in the pre-K/K/1/2 range.

I love this book! I ordered it because my oldest son (also named Jack), has multiple food allergies. I wanted something that I could read to him and his younger brother. I LOVE that this book simultaneously stresses that food allergies need to be taken seriously while also showing that it's not something that needs to rule (and ruin) every aspect of life. Fantastic book! I will be taking this to my son's preschool class to share with his classmates!

From the reviews, I could tell this was a good book...but I was still surprised at just how PERFECT it is for helping explain allergies to little children. My 3-year-old has severe peanut and tree nut allergies (had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter the first time he ate it at 14 months--so scary)! We've been talking to him about his allergies, got him an allerbling allergy bracelet, and are always teaching him about his allergies and re-iterating it with him continually. This book thoroughly explains how to safely live with allergies, and also to be sensitive to others' allergies. It also helps kids with allergy to understand that they are not alone, even though we are all different and may have different allergies. We need to be sensitive to one another. I LOVE this book and so does my son!!!

I read this book to our second grade class because we have many students with severe food allergies. The kids loved the story and the characters and the children with allergies kept calling out, "Just like me!" Our students have been reading it during quiet time and connecting with the characters. The message is important: we do many things to keep ourselves safe, some of us have to also be careful what food we touch and eat to stay safe. It's important to remind adults as well who don't understand the severity of food allergies. Thanks for giving the world this book!

My son has FPIES (a rare type of food allergy) to multiple foods and some are unusual (he is allergic to rice and oats, which are usually safe). I was looking for a book that didn't just tell him to avoid foods with a particular type of allergen, but one that gave some basic guidelines about living with allergies, that a two year old could understand and internalize. This book is great. The main character has 3 allergies and it covers all the basics - asking mom/dad before eating something, hand washing, not sharing food, not hiding a reaction, allergy testing and it does it in a way that makes allergies seem like a normal part of life, not something to be upset or anxious about. I love it! I highly recommend this book to any parent who is trying to help their child understand what it means to have allergies, I think it would also be good for kids who have friends or family members with allergies.

We absolutely love this book. Recently, my 2 1/2 year old son had a really bad reaction to coconut given to him by his babysitter, where we ended up at the hospital. Since then, we've been talking about his allergies, but I felt we were missing something in what we had to convey to him. We mostly said, you're allergic to coconut and nuts and you cannot eat them. However, this book covers everything, and it makes the subject fun and relatable: the main character is a food detective and talks about ways to keep safe with food allergies (like not sharing food, washing hands, school scenarios). It also helps explain what an allergic reaction is, and how it might feel. It has become one my son's favorite books, and we even read it to his friends and cousins too. It's a great resource to help educate the other little people in his life, himself and adults. I really recommend this book to people in a similar situation with a toddler with food allergies.
