As a mother of 6 kids (From 4 to 20) with most of us having various intolerances I was looking for a cook book that would provide me with ideas to suit the whole family. The recipes in Antoinettes book are:
*Easy to follow
*They really work & turn out as they should!
*There are colour photos of some of the dishes.
*The book is set out clearly showing what each receipe is free from
*Nutritional balanced
*There is a very interesting section at the beginning of the book written by Karen Sullivan about intolerances/allergies.The section also includes infomation on healthy eating, it's very informative & great to hear from an expert.

In conclusion this is a very useful book to have if you need to cook for anyone with allergies/intolerences. Not only does it have basic kid friendly recipes such as fairy cakes, fish fingers, ketchup & chicken nuggets. But it also has more unusual recipes such as bacon cheesy corn muffins, Bramble Fool & Chiken Tikka wraps all suitable for older teenagers & adults alike.
This is a book that I hope to try all of the recipes from as they all look good & the best thing is that my kids want to try them too!!!!

I bought this book a few years ago when my son had milk and egg allergies (now luckily outgrown). At the time, there were very few allergy cookbooks around and I was (and still am) very impressed with this one. Unlike some other allergy cookbooks that are full of sugar-laden and other unhealthy recipes, this book has got the balance right: the recipes are tasty and healthy, real food for real children (and adults) that you will still want to make when your battle with allergies ends. The authors give great suggestions for adding extra calcium, iron, essential fatty acids - all so important for any child, but especially one on a restricted diet or battling with eczema. I still regularly use this book, even though we can now eat anything. My favourite recipes are the chocolate cake (all my friends now cook it with courgettes and soya yoghurt too as it simply creates the most delicious, moist cake), the chicken tikka wraps and the spaghetti carbonara (I promise you, you will never return to milky home-made or ready made carbonara sauces).

Also useful is the general information at the beginning of the book on allergies generally and the "where to buy" index at the book.

I cannot recommend this book enough.

Good recipes with clear symbols to show which allergy is catered for. Plenty of ideas. The only downside is it states to use dairy free marg. Was hoping for alternatives such as oil or something else as cant find dairy free marg. Usefull to refer to though.

A real disappointment, particularly considering the other reviews. Out of date information and uninspiring. Some of the baby recipes even contradict advice given earlier in the book

Bought as a guide for my Daughter to help cater for my Grandaughter's food intolerances. Excellent advice and illustrations with great healthy recipes. Highly recommended.

Great book, I bought this one based on the reviews on here and I also now really recommend this book, my baby has dairy, soya and egg allergies and I was dreading weaning but after researching online and reading this book I've been able to find lots of 'normal' meals that we can all eat as a family rather than cooking a different meal for my youngest so she doesn't feel like she's missing out.
