The Nut-Free Mom Blog: Food Allergy Memoir: “Feeding Eden” by Susan Weissman

The Nut-Free Mom Blog: Food Allergy Memoir: “Feeding Eden” by Susan Weissman.

Feeding Eden,” by Susan Weissman is a new memoir that speaks to the heart of what it means to parent a child with severe food allergies, everything from finding safe foods to exploring medical care, and ultimately, learning to live with your new normal. 

So much in this book is validating for the food allergy parent, who is often ridiculed or taken to task for their cautious approach to what others think of as harmless activities. Says Weissman in her book, “When I break from routine, there is always a risk particular to Eden. Whether I hire a new baby-sitter, purchase a new brand of tortillas, or plan a family day trip by ferry, I chance the unforeseeable.” Well said and truly understood only by another parent facing food allergies.
