A new children's book on milk allergies has just been published to help children, parents, teachers & educators understand food allergies. "Cody the Allergic Cow: A Children's Story of Milk Allergies" is a wonderfully illustrated book detailing in simple terms the sources of milk allergies, alternatives to milk and how to be part of a group of friends when you are the allergic child.

Does your child have milk allergies? A new book has been written just for you. “Cody the Allergic Cow: A Children’s Story of Milk Allergies” is the second allergy-related book by author and mother, Nicole Smith.

“Cody” tells the story of a young cow who discovers he’s allergic to milk and explains severe dairy allergies in simple terms. It details alternatives to milk, and foods to avoid if you have milk allergies. This is the second book by Nicole Smith, her first being “Allie the Allergic Elephant: A Children’s Story of Peanut Allergies” a national best seller on the topic of peanut allergies.

Food allergies affect approximately 6-8% of children in the United States, and milk is one of the top 8 allergens. Children can exhibit mild to severe symptoms, yet some may outgrow their milk allergy as they age. “Dairy avoidance requires a huge commitment on the part of the family,” states Nicole Smith, “recipes have to be reworked, labels read and foods from friends are never eaten.”

“Cody” explains the problems of accepting foods from well-meaning friends as a potentially hazardous situation. “Milk ingredients hide in so many foods, and non-allergic children aren’t going to know whether what they’re eating is safe for the milk-allergic child,” continues Mrs. Smith. “A parent’s best power tool is knowledge on the part of the allergic child. Never accept food from others, and only eat food with an ingredient label attached that a parent has okayed.”

Both books are available on and, or through the author’s Web site:
