In addition to an extensive assortment of recipes and reliable guidance on feeding the allergic child (at home, at school, and while traveling), other sections include reference charts to the nutrient and chemical contents of common foods, medications, and grocery brands. The book includes a foreword by Frederic Speer, M.D., nationally recognized authority on food allergies and author of several books on the subject.
