Eden had problems with food practically from birth. By the time he was a toddler, he had been diagnosed with multiple food allergies. A few drops of soy milk on his skin would send his parents running for the Benadryl as Eden’s skin swelled and turned red, and he broke out in hives. Trips to the emergency room were common. Feeding Eden Susan Weissman is part mother’s memoir of the first few years of Eden’s life and part self-help and part motivational book aimed at parents of other food allergic children.
The book includes an appendix with links and book suggestions for helping live with your child’s allergies. Also included is extensive endnotes referencing all the statistics and information provided throughout the book. The only negative was the book needs a better editor. I highly recommend it for any parent with a child with food restrictions. My daughter’s only issue is gluten, but I still found Feeding Eden to be useful for me.
