I am considering sending this book back. The positives are it is very attractive and well laid out. The negatives- if you are ALLERGIC to egg, milk and wheat there are no recipes here for you. I had hoped for a cake book to compliment the excellent Alice Sherwood book.
I am also not so sure that allergies and intollerances are the same thing. There is no mention of it being medically approved or checked for accuracy.
If you have one allergy or intollerance this book may be for you but it is no good if you have multiple food allergies.

It is well illustrated and has been a fantastic tool at pre-school and with my older daughter at school to make the class aware of the issues. It is simple and non threatening as it is in a story format. It tells other… Read more
