Editorial Reviews

Review

Breezy, uplifting, yet “meaty” and informative. -- Nancy Carol Sanker, OTR, Director of Educational Support Groups, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)

I ... agree with one main goal of this resource, which is to help your child ‘eat differently without feeling different.’ -- Janet Rinehart, Chairman, Houston Celiac Sprue Support Group, and Past President, National CSA/USA, Inc.

This book will be a welcome addition to references recommended by health care professionals to their food-sensitive patients. -- Kenneth Fine, M.D., Intestinal Health Institute, FinerHealth and Nutrition

From the Publisher

Some things are inevitable. When Carol Fenster, Ph.D., discovered she couldn’t eat wheat ten years ago, she started her own publishing company to share her wheat-free living skills with others. When author Theresa (Terri) Willingham learned her son, Chris, was gluten-intolerant, she wrote a book about raising a healthy, gluten-free child. It was inevitable that the two would eventually meet. They collaborated and the end result is Savory Palate’s fourth book: Food Allergy Field Guide: A Lifestyle Manual for Families.

“Terri and I know we need more books for children with food sensitivities which, according to the Centers for Disease Control, affect 1 in every 6 children,” says Fenster, who has authored three books of her own. “This is especially true for Celiac Disease, a form of gluten-intolerance that was presumed to be quite rare but is now thought to affect as many as one in every 120 children (University of Maryland School of Medicine, 2000).” Gluten, a protein in wheat, barley, rye, and spelt, is the culprit because it prevents celiacs from absorbing nutrients from food. The result is malnutrition, anemia, small stature, and other complications.

Terri knows from first-hand experience what it's like to raise a child with food sensitivities. “I focus on helping families manage children’s food sensitivities, especially helping them to “eat different without seeming different”, says Willingham. “Children want to fit in and sometimes a special diet sets them apart.” She offers practical advice to build a child’s “health-esteem” while assuring that the child and family, friends, school, and other caregivers are prepared to handle the occasions in a child’s life––school events, parties, field trips, and eating out.

Savory Palate Press is proud to add the Food Allergy Field Guide to its list of offerings for those with food sensitivities. Physicians, dietitians, nutritionists, and ohter health professionals welcomed the new book with praises, saying it was a valuable addition to resources they recommend for food-sensitive families.

Format: Paperback
I have read the Food Allergy Field Guide and I believe the author has provided a wonderful resource of information for parents of food sensitive children or anyone coping day to day with a food allergy or food intolerance. The book's clear and easy reading style makes it my first choice when recommending literature on the subject of living comfortably with a food sensitivity. There are wonderful stories, tips, substitution tables, and recipes, all underscored by a rich collection of footnoted references.

Format: Paperback
Food Allergy Field Guide: A Lifestyle Manual For Families offers practical, "reader friendly", up-to-date information on food sensitivities; advice on reading labels, grocery shopping, eating out for those with food allergies; tips on emotional, social and psychology considerations stemming from food allergies; pointers for parents on helping their food allergy sensitive child to enjoy parties, field trips, and outings; how to detect hidden food allergies; one hundred kid-tested and approved recipes along with valuable cooking advice; and an extensive resource list. Food Allergy Field Guide is a "must" for anyone who must deal with food allergies for themselves or members of their families -- especially their children.

Format: Paperback
The Food Allergy Field Guide is one of the most comprehensive books of its type that I've ever seen. Since we're dealing with a couple of different food sensitivities in our family, it's great to have a one stop resource for shopping, eating out and cooking. It puts food sensitivities in the right perspective, too, reminding us that having a food sensitivity isn't the end of the world, but can be the start of a whole new world of healthy eating. I find that very reassuring and comforting.

Format: Paperback
Cookbooks for special diets are always a treat (especially for our family, where we have several different food sensitivities to deal with), but a highly readable, real hands-on coping manual like this one is a real find! Willingham puts food sensitivities in perspective, with humor and practical advice that I can actually use. This one's a keeper!

It's about time that someone wrote such a complete, well documented, understandable book like this! It is quite obvious that Ms. Willingham has thoroughly researched the subject. It has become the food bible at our house. Unlike most books on food senstivities, this one is full of wit and character creating a pleasurable reading experience. I will definately look for more books by this author!

I run a support group for parents of children with food allergies and continuously recommend this book. Resources, contacts, food family listings, nutritional requirements for age groups, recipes, substitutions, supportive stories....it's all in there. A very practical book. A must have!
