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 childrens 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 childs health-esteem while assuring that the child and family, friends, school, and other caregivers are prepared to handle the occasions in a childs lifeschool 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.
