But I'd like your help. This would be a resource that parents of newly diagnosed kids could reference to help them navigate the first few days, weeks, and months of handling a peanut allergy (or any food allergy for that matter). This will ideally be a 'quick guide' of sorts.
I'm thinking under 10 pages.
But here's where you come in. In the comments section, let me know what your biggest question/concern/issue was when you starting making your child's world 'allergy safe'. Note that I didn't say allergy free - can anyone really protect their child from the allergen at all times? I don't think I can.
So back to your feedback. What did you NEED to know, but didn't have time to read in one of the other great, albeit thick, books out there?
- How to tell your family?
- Preparing meals?
- Eating Out?
- Educating your caregiver/schools/teachers?
- Learning about what foods and products to avoid?
- How to find websites or support groups that could help?
- Learning about the different tests out there for allergies?
I look forward to your comments. If you'd prefer to email me, send your suggestions on to peanutfreemamaATgmailDOTcom.
