Mum, Can I Eat This? is a great everyday cookbook for families dealing with their children’s food intolerances. It has tasty recipes and useful tips. This book will also be a great help over Christmas and at other special events, and for when parents are starting out and dont know what to cook with the limited ingredients.

Usually, those who suffer from food intolerances have no option but to eat blander foods or miss out all together. Not any more. Mum, Can I Eat This? is a great everyday cookbook for families dealing with their children’s food intolerances. It has tasty food and useful tips, and recipes for both everyday use and special occasions.

When Casey Ellis’s children began to experience food intolerances, she found there was a lack of credible information and cookbooks that catered for children. And most of the recipes she did find, her children would never eat because they didnt taste quite right.

To ease the pain and frustration of food intolerances in her family, Casey took to the stove. After much trial and error, she has created a degree of normality in her children’s lives, and it tastes amazing! She has published this collection of recipes to share with other families.

All ingredients in this book have been approved by an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

Casey Ellis is not a qualified dietitian, nurse, researcher or doctor. So how is she qualified to write this cookbook? She is a mum who for the last four years of her life she has lived, breathed and dreamt about low fructose and FODMAP foods, lactose, sucrose and gluten intolerance, as well as IBS. She has read countless books and research documents. She must get it right as if she makes a mistake with her cooking then she has unintentionally made her children sick. She has learnt to use the ingredients and balance what her children can tolerate, and has done her best to make sure that they miss out on as little of life’s pleasure as possible. This book is the culmination of four years of throwing food in the bin because her kids wouldn’t eat it. Best of all, she knows what kids like and believes she has created a great set of recipes with a challenging set of ingredients.

1. Usually, cookbooks just cater for one or two intolerances, but this book can be helpful for people with fructose intolerance, lactose, gluten and sucrose intolerance, IBS or people who just want to get rid of table sugar.

2. The recipes taste a lot like the food that people could eat before they had any intolerances. 

3. The recipes are simple foods that children love.

4. The author has cut down on steps to save time for busy parents. 

5. While the focus is on food for kids, adults with intolerances can also get great value from the book.

6. This book is written by a mum who has had to deal with these issues in her own family.
