Our food allergy books tackle a difficult subject in a simple way, helping you begin a discussion on food allergies with your child.
Meet Thai & Rabbie
The loveable book character Thai is a highly relatable little boy. He has severe allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, shellfish and milk. Thai’s positive attitude shows other children how food allergies don’t have to stop you from joining in and having fun. Thai is confident and educates his friends, family and classmates on the importance of not sharing food and drinks, and hand washing with soap and water after eating.
With the quirky Rabbie by Thai’s side, follow them in their adventures as they help to educate children around the world about food allergies.
Educational resources for parents, carers and friends
My Food Allergy Friends makes it simple to start a conversation about food allergies, share these resources with family and friends to raise awareness about food allergies. You will also find discussion points on our resource page, craft and colouring pages to make learning interactive and fun!
Discovering your child has food allergies can feel overwhelming but you are not alone. We understand the challenges of bringing up a child with life-threatening allergies and we are here to help. You can start by educating yourself with our Parent Handbook or meet us at one our our Family Allergy Masterclasses held across Australia.
When your child is about to start kindy or school we have information and tips to help with this too. Check these out under our resource menu at the top of this page. Talking about anaphylaxis is also a difficult subject to tackle but we have that covered too with a gentle story about Thai’s first anaphylaxis reaction. Helping you begin age-appropriate discussion with your child and set them up to feel confident and give them the skills to eventually manage their own allergies.
It’s also vital that your child understands what having food allergies means and is confident at each development stage in their journey. We have you covered with our children’s book series and education resources. Learning about allergies needs to be fun and engage children and get them involved in becoming Food Allergy SMART.
