Judi and Shari Zucker are two twins on a mission – to bring delicious and nutritious vegetarian snacks to children and adults alike that have common, as well as, uncommon allergies. Starting at a ripe age of 11, these twins became vegetarians. They wrote their first snack book at age 16 and are continuing to spread the word that there are alternatives for traditional snacks that make allergy sufferers sick.

The Ultimate Allergy-Free Snack Cookbook is not only filled with dozens of kid friendly treats and sweets but also has a lot of information for parents and adults new to coping with allergies. The beginning of the book explains common allergies while also explaining foods and additives to avoid. The delicious recipes to follow are easy to make and taste amazing.

I tried the Really Raspberry Sorbet, the Lemon Drops, Mummy’s Yummy Hummus and the Burritos 2 Go. Being lactose intolerant, I was delighted that the Raspberry Sorbet was luscious and full of fresh ripe raspberry flavor and the Lemon Droops smooth and tangy. Perfect for serving to little ones! Mummy’s Yummy Hummus  and Burritos 2 Go were a hit with my two picky nieces and nephews who have combined nut, dairy and other food allergies.

I look forward to trying more safe for the stomach recipes. I definitely recommend this cookbook to allergy sufferers and parents with little ones that have allergies. Because why shouldn’t everyone be able to have gourmet tasting, allergy free snacks? Look for the sisters’ other books as well!
