Also, more research should have been done on ingredients prior to publishing. It's not helpful to hear about what "might" be safe options. For example, I felt it was totally unhelpful to have a section recommending a specific type of Disney Lolipop (strawberry/lemon) and then stating "I'm going to guess (and hope) that it doesn't (have any artificial flavor in it)" p. 47.
Another example of this is recommending the park's "Jumbo Turkey Legs" and then stating it's "likely free of the Big 3". I can appreciate that there is always uncertainty with food ingredients, but if you're going to write a book and make specific recommendations about foods, then I feel you should be able to state that you did your research and determined that the foods are confirmed to not have the ingredients you're trying to avoid at the time of writing. But instead, it seems the author is just going on her gut instinct and the fact that her kids "love these" turkey legs and other foods she recommends and "seem to do ok" eating them.
In addition, the recipes she included in the back of the book are all for beyond Stage 2, with plentiful amounts of herbs and spices, as well as use of essential oils like peppermint which are known to be very high in salicylates/phenols. If I'm going to prepare my own meals and DIY insect killer for my child while on vacation, I'm certainly not going to add in extra salicylates! It would make more sense to be very strict on those meals and homemade products to help compensate for the unavoidable intake of troublesome and hidden ingredients when eating out.
I realize that not all kids have issues with fragrances, herbs, and high salicylate foods like berries, grapes, and tomatoes, but when I purchased this book, I really thought it was going to be for someone who needed to follow the Feingold Diet.
All that being said, I do appreciate Ms. Sheri Davis' work and feel her book can be helpful to a parent who is new to food intolerances and needs general guidelines and ideas.
The Feingold way of eating has been extremely important for our family and our many food sensitivities. I am pleased to know that Disney can be so accommodating with food allergies/sensitivities. I plan to use many of the suggestions in this book on our trip.
