Raising Awareness for People with Food Allergies

Sally Huss and I set out to create a book for children to help raise awareness about food allergies. Months later, our book, A Lesson for Every Child: Learning About Food Allergies, is still trending as a best-seller on Amazon in multiple categories and will soon be released in hardback.

As the book finds its way organically around the world, we are so incredible grateful for reviews like this.

"As a former educator I would encourage TEACHERS to get this book for their classroom! With the growing amount of KNOWN allergies now this is a MUST HAVE. My niece has a severe allergy to peanuts and I plan on purchasing this book for her to send along to her teacher. Of course the story addresses more than just a student sharing something “different” about themselves. It actually addresses the opportunity for peers to connect with one another on so many different levels. Something we need right NOW! I think most students would have a connection to this book. If they don’t have any allergies they sure know someone who does!"

Please help us continue to raise awareness to help all of us in the food allergy community stay alive and thrive with food allergies.

Learning was everything to Mrs. Emerson. So when a new student was brought into her classroom, Mrs. Emerson was delighted because she discovered that this young man knew something that everyone needed to know. She told her class that Jack was just like everyone else, except for one thing – he had food allergies. “Would you like to explain that to us, Jack?” Jack proceeds to educate us all. This book is endorsed by Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT), MedicAlert® Foundation, Elijah Alavi Foundation, The Love for Giovanni Foundation, No Nut Traveler, and Food Allergy Zone.
