In addition to demystifying allergies, the 264-page book includes meal plans and over 70 delicious and foolproof recipes that use simple and inspiring ingredient combinations. These require minimal equipment and boast quick preparation times. The recipes are an accumulation of years of patient consults, support groups and families sharing their best meal options.

Ultimately, parents have the same goal: to settle, nourish and protect their child. This book will help guide parents in meeting these needs with less anxiety and more confidence.
