Imagine rushing your child to the hospital, terrified for his life8230;just because he took a mouthful of the wrong food or a few drops of milk touched his skin. Susan Weissman knows how that feels. From birth, her son Eden suffered from allergies so intense that an errant bite could be deadly: Dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, fish, shellfish, and several fruits all wreaked havoc with his body. Susan had to make food the focus of her existence just to lead him safely through a world filled with edible landmines.
In Feeding Eden, Susan writes with poignancy, honesty, and humor about her quest to help her son-including trying a cluster of alternative therapies-as well as the effect of Eden's illness on their entire family.160; More than just a story for parents with severely allergic children, this is a stirring account of one woman's recipe for motherhood as she rises to a challenge she has no choice but to conquer-and successfully restores her entire family's appetite for life.160;
