Thai’s Guide to Being Food Allergy Smart – Parent Guide
Having a child diagnosed with a food allergy is overwhelming. This book is a beginner’s guide to food allergies and will help you educate your family and friends on some basic steps to living life safely and positively with allergies. Food allergies may be challenging at times, but they are manageable.
Allergic disease affects four million Australians. One in ten babies will develop a food allergy in Australia. Allergy education is not just about educating parents and their children. Whether we are young or old, male or female, whatever our occupation, as a community we all need to understand allergies.
In this guide you will find all the basic information in one spot, giving you tips on managing allergies at home, at restaurants, BBQs, birthday parties and when staying with friends. Practical information for families and loved ones, making allergies seem less overwhelming. A guide that parents can then share with family, friends and teachers.
Are You Food Allergy Smart?
This is the book every parent should have when their child is diagnosed with allergies and then more copies for friends and families. It is a complete ‘survival guide’ and would have made a huge positive difference to our lives if we could have read it 5 years ago!! So much valuable information that applies to our daily lives. A great educational tool for anyone that spends time with our kids.

I’d highly recommend getting a copy of this book for your family if you don’t have one! It has lots of practical information about things like eating out, cross contamination and birthday parties….. plus heaps more.
I think it would really helpful for families new to allergies because it covers all of the important things that you often have to work out the hard way….. the stuff allergists don’t have the time to go through at an appointment.
It’s also great to have to give to people that look after your child to read. Thanks My Food Allergy Friends 🙂
