Feeding a family with food allergies doesn't have to be boring or tasteless. Kiwi, the premier magazine about raising families the natural and organic way, presents 120 great recipes to keep your family happy, healthy and sane.

Allergy-Friendly Food for Families is the most trustworthy, comprehensive, practical, and kid-friendly collection of recipes that exists for the important and growing audience of allergy-aware families. Unlike other allergy cookbooks, this book covers not one or two allergens, but the five most common allergens in kids: wheat, dairy, eggs, nuts, and soy. Each of the 120 recipes is free of at least three of these allergens; most are free of all five.

When parents are desperate for ideas for what to make for dinner (or lunch, or snack time), they want recipes from someone they trust, for food that tastes good, that doesn't require a lot of fancy ingredients, and that the whole family can eat. Allergy-Friendly Food for Families is the ultimate resource. From the three crucial mealtimes (breakfast, lunch, dinner) to the "fun" foods families can't live without (desserts, snacks, parties), parents are completely covered. Perhaps most importantly, all of these recipes are simple for parents to make.

Recipes such as Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies, Pear Yogurt Dunkers, Good-for-you Nachos, Polenta Mini Pizzas, Giant Cookie Cake, Veggie Bite Soup, and Cool Zucchini Noodles will make kids forget they have allergies. Parents will love the additional informational sections on spotting food allergies, stocking an allergy-free pantry, deciphering labels, and other frequently asked questions.

Food should be delicious; family time should be fun. This book reflects those values.

As a family dealing with multiple food allergies and sensitivities, I really appreciate the way this book is laid out. I've found some really great keeper recipes in here.

This is VERY well organized. There are basic recipes and more interesting ones as well. I love the way the edges fo the books are labeled so you can quickly see if the recipe contains allergens.

LOVE this book! I have had it for a few days and made 3 recipes from it...every one amazing!

I am so pleased with the ease and tastiness of these recipes that I am seriously considering buying this book for myself just so I can have it on hand all the time.

I like the book, lots of good recipes that would appeal to a variety of ages, with issues around dairy, soy, nuts & gluten.

I did think that the layout was a bit on the busy side. It would have been a bit easier to navigate if it weren't trying to accomodate so many issues in one book. I thought that it could easily have been done in two or three books, being more specific about the allergy/intolerance issues.

It is still a very accessible book, especially for those new to food issues, who have to deal with food issues & kids.
