Resources For Families with Severe Food Allergies

Posted: Updated: March 17, 2012 03:02 PM EDT

This week on Rebecca Regnier's Full Plate we talk about the difficult challenges parents face when their children are diagnosed with severe food allergies.

We introduce to a new book called Feeding Eden by Susan Weissman which chronicles the emotional journey of a family coping with life threatening allergies. In addition to the emotional story Weissman also shares resources that help her family.

Then you'll meet an amazing family with a novel idea on how to deal with allergies. They've got an allergy sniffing dog! It's a new way for people with allergies to be alerted to ingredients that could be dangerous for them. 

We weigh in with a dietician on the first steps to take if you suspect your child is allergic to a food.

And finally a GREAT cookie recipe from Dena's Cookie Jar that's safe and delicious.
