Allergy Friendly Cookbook for Kids

I found this great recipe book on Amazon. I bought it for my friend and she bought one for me. I haven't had a lot of time to try all of the recipes, because it came at an extra busy time in my life. However, the ones I have tried have been great. It contains more than 150 recipes that are wheat, gluten, nut, egg, and dairy free (as well as low in sugar).  Some of the recipes are: chicken nuggets, pizza bites, the very best spaghetti, sloppy joe veggie skillet, fruit bars, baked veggie nachos, happy birthday cake, homemade marshmallows, "cream"sicle cake, and frosted brownies.

Here is what someone had to say about it on Amazon. " Great cookbook! I have been cooking allergy free for my son for approx 2 years now. He is allergic to eggs, soy, dairy, wheat and tree nuts. It is hard to find a cookbook that is sensitive to all of the top 8 allergens. This one does, with the exception of just a couple of recipes. I purchased this cookbook to find some new ideas. I have started to notice that the varying cookbooks tend to rely on one specific type of gluten free flour. This one is rice flours and tapioca flours which can have a little grittier taste. The last cookbook I used it was oat flour (Sophie Safe) and those recipes tend to crumble. It is nice to have a few new recipes and to try new ingredients to see which ones work for you. I still love Sophie Safe, but am enjoying this cookbook just as much! If you cook for someone with allergies, you know how challenging it can be. I would recommend this cookbook highly!! Good luck!!"


  1. We've tried many of the recipes in this and they are well-received by the kids (and the grown-ups!)
    I don't think it is the healthiest of cookbooks, but it is definitely full of fun recipes that are allergy-friendly versions of kid favorites:)
