My younger son Ben suffered his first allergic reaction to formula milk at just 5 months and was diagnosed ‘atopic’. He seemed to be allergic to everything and weaning was a slow and terrifying ordeal.
The hospital’s nutritional advice was helpful, but I really wanted a comprehensive list of simple recipes that would suit Ben’s particular needs. So I began experimenting with dairy and egg alternatives. Then, my lovely friend Chloe, as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award, enthusiastically helped me create a collection of our family's favourite recipes.
The result is this easy to use book, which has been developed with families in mind. So if you have to cater for anyone with an allergy to egg and/or dairy products and you don't want to mess around making several meals at the same time - treat yourself to the gift of confidence and buy this book! It also makes an ideal gift, especially for anyone you know who finds themselves in a similar situation. Or even a friend or relative who is going to cater for your allergic child! We have even, where possible, tried to offer alternatives for gluten and nut ingredients too.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the recipes as much as we have enjoyed discovering them.
