The Girl Who Cannot Eat Peanut Butter - Managing Peanut Allergies with A Positive Attitude

Just yesterday, I was at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center doing what I LOVE to do most.  

Presenting a Smart Allergy~Friendly Education Product Awareness class to families new to managing food allergies.   Several of the families were in the midst of trying to figure out how they were going to navigate their child's newly discovered life-threatening peanut allergy.  I was pleased to have on hand a book my own children have enjoyed.

THE GIRL WHO CANNOT EAT PEANUT BUTTER, written by Sharon Chisvin.  

The Girl Who Can't Eat Peanut Butter Review from S.A.F.E. 

This easy to read, poetically written story shares the many challenges a little girl goes through while coping with a peanut butter food allergy at school.  It simply points out the obvious: that all classes are "made up of all kinds of children.. Each one of them special in a different way".   

Presenting at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center's Baby and Me Class
  Having a daughter with peanut allergies, Sharon Chisvin knows first hand the challenges which can come with navigating this often times, stressful journey.  Although the little girl CAN'T eat peanut butter, there ARE so many things she can enjoy.  As a matter of fact, her seemingly exotic lunches often draw a crowd of onlookers curious to see what she has to share today!

As a mom of a child with a life-threatening peanut allergy, I love her positive approach.   I think you will too!
