As food allergy parents, it's heartbreaking to see our kids miss out on so much. We want nothing more than for them to experience all of the childhood experiences possible, and yet, memories of watching helplessly as they react are seared into our brains. Sometimes we have to exclude them in order to keep them safe. It's a challenging balancing act—every. single. day.
While you cannot possibly protect them from the tough feelings that come with a food allergy diagnosis, this children’s book about a young frog with an allergy to flies is a fun and affordable way to help your child feel at least a “tad bit” better.
Let’s face it, even if we say all the right things, our kids may not believe us because they know we are biased. They are more likely to internalize the message when they see an endearing character struggle through and overcome the same challenges they are facing.
Will one frustrated frog’s travels show him a way to feel good about his unique food needs?
Spoiler Alert: the answer is, Yes! Tad starts out feeling sad because he thinks he doesn’t fit in but ends up confident in who he is and hopeful for his future.
