According to Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), an estimated 6 million (or 8%) of children in the U.S. have food allergies. As every parent of a food allergic child knows, new challenges arise at every stage. So how do we teach our kids about food allergies? Luckily, there are many excellent children’s books about food allergies available that do just that!
The books listed below are a few of our favorites:
The BugaBees by Amy Recob
The Bugabees is a story about 8 friends that have individual food allergies. These food allergies get in the way sometimes but that does not stop them from having a good time.
I think that this is a great book I hope you like it too!
The Peanut Free Cafe by Gloria Koster
This is one of the first children’s books that we found at our local library on the subject of food allergies. It’s a cute story about a new student, Grant, who is allergic to peanuts. He sits at a peanut free table in the cafeteria but ends up being lonely…until one of his new friends comes up with a clever solution. The Peanut Free Cafe was born!
