“Having many patients and friends with peanut allergy it is fantastic to have a set of resources available for these families to use. I will keep both book and website at hand to give to those patients. Keep up the good work!”
Calgary's Child Magazine (Nov/Dec 2005)
This must-have guide offers practical solutions on how your child and the rest of your family can live with a peanut allergy. As a parent of a child who suffers from this life-threatening allergy, Sheila Rusnell-Newton, wrote this essential handbook. The book shos you how to recognize the symptoms of an allergic reaction, illustrates how to administer a simple prescription drug, and explains how to identify foods that are safe to eat. Also included is an area to store the child's personal information, including photo, medical information, emergency action plan, and notes specific to the child. Parents, Teachers, Caregivers, and even Grandma's will appreciate this useful tool. Available through peanutaware.com

"The Peanut Allergy Handbook is an indispensable resource for the peanut allergic's library. Replete with practical information, and laid out in a most easily accessible format, this manual is a must-have for every caregiver who interacts with a child with a life-threatening peanut allergy. As a school psychologist, I reference the Handbook each time I devise an accommodation plan for an allergic student; and as the mother of a toddler with a life-threatening allergy to peanuts, I rely on the Handbook as my On-the-Go, A-to-Z Peanut Allergy ‘Bible.’ Buy one for yourself, one for your child’s babysitter, one for your School Nurse, and one for any other person who comes into daily contact with your precious little one.”
Thank you, Sheila, from the bottom of my heart for putting this tremendous reference together for our community."
