“Drawing on their own personal and family experiences, the authors offer very practical, ingenious and creative solutions for the preparation of nutritious, healthy and tasty meals, while still staying away from the various types of foods that allergic members of the family should avoid.” Dr Diab F Haddad MD MRCPCH, Consultant Paediatrician, St Peter’s Hospital, Surrey
“My toddler, Sophie, is allergic to dairy, wheat, soya, fish and nuts. When she was diagnosed I longed for a cookbook to help her thrive and me, a working mum, to survive. There wasn’t one, so I wrote one.” Clare Constant (Best selling educational writer)
“We have food allergies in our family but my kids demand to be fed “normal food” like their school friends – so I developed these recipes to make sure they can. Now, when their mates come home for tea, they can’t tell the difference!” Suzanne Wood (former Home Economist of the Year)
