Thanks to another generous FAAN grant, our support group's lending library is expanding again. Here are the titles that we just added:
- The Food Allergy Mama's Baking Book, by Kelly Rudnicki. Kelly is a well-known blogger and author. Her blog, Food Allergy Mama, was created 4 years ago and has become widely popular in the food allergy community. Her first cookbook includes mouth-watering recipes that are nut-, dairy-, and egg-free, as well as tips for reading labels, tips for birthday parties, baking hints, and many other useful ideas for safely baking with food allergies.
- Understanding and Managing Your Child's Food Allergies, by Scott Sicherer, MD. Dr Sicherer is the Chief of the Division on Allergy and Immunology in the Department of Pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital. He is also a clinical researcher, focusing on various food allergy topics. The book reflects his vast knowledge and experience with food allergies, and it offers parents and caregivers all the tools they need in recognizing and managing allergic reactions, avoiding food allergens, dealing with the emotional aspects of food allergies, and so much more.
- Food Allergies and Me, by Juniper Skinner, is a children's book that introduces young children to the world of food allergies. Written by a mother of an allergic child, the book uses a simple story to teach children about safety, integration, and self-advocacy.
- The School Food Allergy Program, by Anne Munoz-Furlong, is a comprehensive manual published by FAAN that offers school personnel all the information they need to have in order to devise a safe environment for food allergic children.
