Review by austcrimefiction
I don't have kids, and it's been a hell of a long time since I was a kid, but I do drool over a LOT of cookbooks, and this one looks fantastic.I particularly liked the opening chapters in this book as they give parents guidance on how to do a conversion to gluten-free, and what seemed vitally important, how to teach your child to handle the transition (god knows it's hard enough when you're an adult... particularly with the "charming" comments that fly around about fads, and oh yes another one of you fussy types). The coping strategies provided in this book were simple, made sense and gave me some hints at my ripe old age and after many years of wrestling with this problem.The recipe part of the book had some great "favourites" - fish fingers, pizza, polenta chips, cakes, salads, and healthy stuff suitably disguised. There's even a Pad Thai recipe.Really this seems like it would be a very handy book for anybody struggling with a child with gluten intolerance of any kind. I'm planning on recommending this book to somebody I know who is dealing with exactly this problem with their grand-daughter at the moment. I think it might help.
