Please read, before reading

I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Food Allergy Books

Here are two great books to use to help explain food allergies to kids.

The Buggabees: Friends with Food Allergies, by Amy Recob

I really like that this story discusses the eight most common food allergies: milk, peanut, tree nuts, fish, wheat, soy, shellfish, and egg.   It's important for children to learn that they have allergies and that other children do, too. The illustration is really fun and interesting.  Highly recommend!

Allie the Allergic Elephant: A Children's Story about Peanut Alleriges, by Nicole Smith.
This story only focuses on the peanut allergies.  I like that it shows the allergic reactions.  It really makes it simple for kids to understand in a fun way.  Highly recommend!

    Thanks so much for recommending The BugaBees to others and sharing such great information on your blog! It's parents like you that inspire me to do the same. Keep up the great work. I look forward to learning from your experiences and sharing some of my own as well.

    All the best,
