||"Food allergies in children are an emerging epidemic. Food is an essential part of every culture. It is more than just a means of sustenance: it is social. It is used to celebrate events, reward achievements and show love.
Children with food allergies can feel excluded and isolated. You Can’t Always Tell! is inspired by the need to teach children to safely participate in everyday activities without feeling a sense of exclusion. The book adopts a positive attitude toward food allergies and empowers children to manage their allergies by reinforcing a number of simple and effective safety strategies.
In addition, by raising awareness about the issue of food allergies, the book aims to foster compassion and empathy amongst all children towards those who are different from themselves. "
