Just One Bite

A FOOD ALLERGY MOM'S SEARCH FOR ANSWERS

$19.99 USD

The diagnosis. The planning and preparation. The constant vigilance. The uncertainty. The fear. These can be constant struggles for food allergic individuals and those who care for them. You try to do everything right, you follow all the “rules,” and then BAM, just one bite of the wrong food and an allergic reaction can rock your world. With no right answers and plenty of wrong ones, what works for one family doesn’t necessarily work for another. "Just One Bite" is a book about relatability. The “I get that”s along with the “who knew”s. Additionally, the back of the book features 20 responses from individuals who have/manage various food allergies sharing what is bad AND good about their "restrictions." For author Meghan Neri, experienced food allergy parent, educator, support group leader, and advocate, some of the best medicine has come from connecting with others who understand. Follow the Neri family’s journey of fear, adversity, hope, and connection. You are not alone.

From the Introduction

I would venture to say that parents of children with any disability are just making their way, the best they can, at least initially. I would also venture to say that with increased awareness and education we can create more space for empathy and compassion regardless of the disability. I know for me, I just kept thinking if people understood this better it would be so much easier.

My family's journey led me to learn far more about food allergies than I ever could have imagined. This journey also helped me find my voice, as an advocate for my children, as well as for the food allergy community at large. This book is as much a therapeutic release of all I've collected along the way as it is a space for connection and resource for others on a similar journey.
