Books are a fantastic way to share concepts with children. Having dealt with food allergies now for over 25 years, I took a look at what is out there for kids about food allergies to help educate kids and also help with the social and classroom aspects.
These will certainly educate kids who are unaware of food allergies and encourage them to be especially kind to kids with it. I believe they will also inspire those kids who do have this condition to value themselves for the discipline that they must have in regards to food choices. Everyone learns something important with this books.
Here are my top five books:
A Lesson For Every Child – Learning About Food Allergies
Nutley the Nut-Free Squirrel
Daniel Has an Allergy
The BugaBees – Friends with Food Allergies
Why Can’t I have a Cupcake?
Let’s keep moving forward with raising awareness for everyone with food allergies. I hope this collection of books would help children, classrooms and families dealing with food allergies.
