Coping with food allergy in babies and young children can be frightening, especially for new parents facing the problem for the first time.

For anyone, especially those unfamiliar with food allergy, management of the condition in the very young can be intimidating. Food allergy is a response of the immune system. It is currently estimated that food allergy occurs in 8 to 10 percent of children. Food intolerances, which are reactions to chemicals contained in, or added to foods, can contribute to the growing number of problems many children have with food allergies.

While food allergy is much more common in babies and young children than in adults, most food allergies are outgrown by the age of seven. This book addresses common problems in infants and children afflicted with food allergies and food intolerances, and the difficulties faced by parents, family, and others who care for them.

You can ensure that you are parenting well if you educate yourself about the real problems that sometimes lie beyond the realm of finicky eating. Dealing with Food Allergies in Babies and Children focuses on the physiological aspects of food allergies in children, arming parents and caregivers with useful tools like the unique Allergen scale and other practical approaches and resources.

The book contains numerous valuable and proven strategies, and provides essential information for dealing with the Top 10 Allergens — Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Corn, Peanuts, Soy, Tree Nuts, Seeds, Shellfish, and Fish.

Dealing with Food Allergies in Babies and Children guides the reader toward nutritionally sound diets for children with food allergies, drawing on the experience of clinicians, parents, and families of children afflicted with often difficult food allergies and food intolerances. It presents methods for analyzing and treating problems, but never loses sight of the child''s nutritional needs.
