Item description for Dealing with Food Allergies in Babies and Children by Janice Vickerstaff Joneja, Pierre Cachia, Franz J. Monssen, Jonathan A. Wray, P. H. Chombart de Lauwe, Marta Rondon & David Mungello...

The tools and methods this guide provides for analyzing and treating allergies in children are adaptable to a variety of situations—without ever losing sight of a child's nutritional needs. Recognizing that deficiencies in critical nutrients during a child's early years can have enormous consequences on growth and bodily functions, the book focuses on prevention and allergy management during pregnancy, in the early weeks of life, and in early childhood. The unique allergen scale and the strategies for confronting the top 10 allergens will help parents balance their child's specific nutritional needs while managing delicate allergies to food.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dealing with Food Allergies in Babies and Children?

Fresh food NOT good for you ?  Apr 28, 2008
Indeed in many cases a particular healthy fresh food may be detrimental to your little one. As a nurturing parent you clean, cuddle, and feed your child. But you sence that there is something wrong. A differential diagnosis to be considered is food allergy. Food allergy and intolerance is more prevalent than you might guess ( 8%). Unfortunately not recognizing it causes the affected child distress. A 15 minute visit with the doctor may prove beneficial. But there is no single reliable lab test that can prove that a child is intolerant to a spreific food or additive. Specialty consultations are in order. And thats where this well written functional book fits in. Comprehensive chapters range through symptoms - detection - diagnosis - prevention - treatment. Celiac disease, autism, eczema, atypical behavior are just a few conditions which are highlighted. Dozens of diets and specific food allergies are detailed in this informative book. Step by step processes are explained by a very well qualified author. She presents methods for analyzing and treating problems, never losing sight of the child's nutritional needs.
Okay  Mar 1, 2008
This book is ok, though I have found many bits of information that are either outdated or just plain misleading. Like recommending clarified butter for use if you should not have dairy. That may work for a small number of people with minor allergies who happen to get some that is 100% casein free, but it is very unlikely. There was also a doom and gloom attitude about the dangers of a restricted diet while breastfeeding and not a lot of support about sticking with it as being the best thing for your child. Plus outdated information on recommended breastfeeding guidelines and a lack of practical advice for living with food allergies and the emotional aspect of sticking to it made this book not worth owning, IMO. There are much better out there. So use common sense and research more in this book before you follow the recommendations.
