From the Back Cover:

Peanuts on the playground. Shellfish in the soup. Dairy, egg, and wheat flour in every label you read. With a food-allergic child, the world is a minefield.

Let When Your Child Has Food Allergies be your guide to keeping your child safe—and your sanity intact. In this book, author Mireille Schwartz shares her invaluable frontline expertise and personal experience caring for her daughter and herself—as both suffer from anaphylactic food allergies.

Schwartz’s unprecedented guide delves deeply into the personal, psychological, and practical aspects of dealing with serious food allergies. It’s loaded with tested tips for:

Getting your child diagnosed · Allergy-proofing your kitchen and house · Surviving school · Balancing fun and protection at parties · Navigating common social situations · Gaining support from friends · Traveling safely · And more.

Like a big sister full of tough love, Schwartz will inspire you with confidence and hope when the going gets rough. Her words offer the moral support of someone who’s been there, is on your side, and will help you fight to protect your child. And like a thoughtful therapist, she helps you problem-solve your way through a world of tricky situations —from daycare to friends’ homes, restaurants, tee-ball games, and more—using directness and diplomacy.

Through this book, you’ll gain the knowledge and know-how you need to do right by your child. Schwartz shares how she and others dealt with the same challenges you face, the words they used, and the ways they overcame people’s ignorance and insensitivity. She shows you how to be the protective parent you aspire to be—compassionate and in control. With Mireille Schwartz’s help and support, you can embrace life with your child’s serious allergies rather than fearing every move you make.
