Imagine how hard it is for a child.
It took you a while to understand. We need those who are responsible for our kids' environments to also understand. It's not always that simple.
I tried to make it easy to help teachers and grandparents and family understand ingredients and cross contamination - and the fact that with a little pre-planning all children can be included. I tried to give a view through a child's eyes that it is sometimes painful. And I tried to show children with special diets that there are others just like them - and that it is OK and that they can speak up for themselves.
