Perfect Gifts for Food Allergy Moms

Are you searching for the perfect gift for a special someone on Mother’s Day? Mother’s Day this year falls on May 10th, coincidentally the beginning of Food Allergy Awareness week. What could be more appropriate to gift on that day than something to help your favorite mom, grandmother, or spouse manage food allergies?

My top picks include books and essential tools:

1. The Allergy-Free Pantry:
Readers love my second book for its practical suggestions to make staples in the safety of your own kitchen.

2. Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking:
If it’s recipes for meals that you need, Cybele Pascal’s book is unsurpassed for those with multiple food allergies.

3. Learning to Bake Allergen-Free:
If you’re looking for a baking book that teaches you how to bake without wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, or nuts, this is a great cookbook for your collection.

4. Feeding Eden:
This memoir by Susan Weissman continues to be one of my all-time favorite books. Perfect for moms with a newly diagnosed child

5. Primo digital scale:
I can't stress enough how important it is to weigh flours when you are baking wheat-free and gluten-free. This is the scale I rely on daily. And now they come in pretty colors, too!

6. Cuisinart Spice and Nut Grinder:
This is the only item on this list over $25, but it’s a tool I use nearly every day for grinding flaxseeds to make flaxseed eggs and flaxseed mayonnaise. Make sure you use it only with allergen-free foods (this is the type of tool that can easily get contaminated).

7. Teal Kitchenaid Cookie Scoop:
A tablespoon size cookie scoop is perfect for forming allergen-free cookies. This one comes in teal – the food allergy awareness color. Love it!! Add it to one of the cookbooks above, put a teal ribbon around the package, and you’re all set!
