Understanding and Managing Your Child's Food Allergies

Informative, compassionate and practical, this book is indispensable for parents, physicians, school nurses, teachers and everyone else who cares for children with food allergies. The author describes why children develop food allergies, the symptoms of food allergy (skin, gastrointestinal and respiratory) and the role of food allergies in behavioural problems and developmental disabilities. Parents will learn how to recognise emergency situations, how to get the most out of their visits to the allergist and how to protect their children in regard to their allergies in everyday life and restaurant situations.
