Donna DeCosta, your Food Allergy Mom Doc, has compiled a comprehensive look at the food allergy experience from both personal and professional perspectives.

A Little Bit Can Hurt ­underscores the dual message that food allergies are life threatening but also ­manageable. It recounts the very personal narratives of those living with food ­allergies, both directly and indirectly, and ­tenderly reveals the beloved face of your food allergic child, student, patient, spouse or friend.

These faces and voices of food allergy:

  • explain what food allergy is like, why we should care and what we can do about it;
  • give readers specific and helpful ideas to incorporate into their daily routines;
  • enable readers to learn from others’ experiences; and
  • provide a springboard for discussion.

In addition, learn from professionals whose jobs involve the daily care and keeping of food-allergic individuals.  Hear from prominent voices in the food allergy community as well as educators, dieticians and food industry professionals!
