  • Description

    Caring for Kids In All Mothers Work: A Guilt-Free Guide for the Stay-at-Home Mom, Cindy Ramming, former accountant, current at-home mom, delivers encouragement and counsel to those women who have decided not to return to the workplace after the birth of a child. Despite the title, she also discusses issues that challenge mothers working outside the home: guilt, juggling competing demands of one's outside job, family, home and self. An appendix includes a list of ideas for home-based businesses and those that get one out of the house. Buying for kids is just like buying for adults. Except their interests change from week to week. And their bodies change from month to month. And they have no resistance to peer pressure. Or any understanding of the value of money. In The Smart Shopper's Guide to the Best Buys for Kids, Sue Robinson, the editor and publisher of Kid News, a national newsletter on consumer bargains for children's merchandise, offers her advice on hunting for pint-sized bargains. In chapters on clothes, furniture, travel, toys, food and more, she offers general advice and caveats (as well as styling tips and recipes) combined with geographically grouped listings of stores and services. For kids whose diets are restricted by food allergies, Mary Harris and Wilma Nachsin have developed such permissible treats as Gingersnaps and Toffee Squares in "My Kid's Allergic to Everything" Dessert Cookbook. Included with recipes for cupcakes, brownies, pies and a variety of flavorful breakfast options are substitutions for flours, sugars, leaveners, chocolate, dairy products, etc. There is also information on safe cleaning products and pesticides, shopping tips and a list of resources. Forewords by Drs. Rebecca Hoffman and Ida Mary S. Thoma discuss the medical aspects of asthma and allergies and explain how to detect offending foods. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

           A number of books have been written about food allergies (or sensitivities), but these recipes are directed specifically at allergic children, though they could be used for adults as well. Both books offer recipes that avoid your child's particular food allergies. Meyer, the mother of allergic children, is the more health-conscious and offers unique, varied recipes. She includes suggestions for outfitting the basic pantry and kitchen when cooking for an allergic child and a section on how to tell whether your child is allergic. Harris and Nachsin, a home economist working toward certification as a nutritionist, have also raised allergic children. Because their recipes are for desserts, they contain a fair amount of oil and sugar, though fruit sweetening is also used. The authors indicate where special ingredients may be purchased and explain how to create an allergy-free home. Both books have merit, especially because little else is available on the subject, and are recommended for all health collections. (Indexes not seen.)?Lorraine F.
