New Children’s Book on Food Allergies Hits Shelves

A new book for children with food allergies, called The Gluten Glitch is now available to help explain food restrictions to kids. The book is about an elementary school-age boy named Gideon who can’t eat foods with gluten and learns how to adopt his diet accordingly.  

Author Stasie John’s children suffer from gluten-intolerant, as well as having food allergies to peanuts, milk and eggs. The book, published by Beaver's Pond Press in Edina, Minn., and illustrated by Kevin Cannon, is the first in the I Eat Different! series. John got the idea of the book when her son could not eat cupcakes at school and was upset when he was picked up from school.

The book briefly explains how gluten can make some people sick and focuses on emotions that children have with feeling different and how they can cope with having food allergies.

A portion of the proceeds from each book is being donated to the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) and The Celiac Disease Foundation.

Buy a copy of the book here.

Stay tuned… Emma, age 10 and gluten-free will review The Gluten Glitch in Delight’s Winter 2012 issue!
