As a food allergy parent, I would love to have everyone watch the episodes. Specially as allergies in children increase, it is more and more important for the public to learn the basics of it. The episodes did a very well job in delivering the information, while still keeping it fun and entertaining. This is the first DVD we have ever owned that is geared for children, and one that made my son feel good and inclusive. I could see his facial expressions change as he watched in approval. Not only did it stress any issues for him, it also lets those with food allergies know they are not alone. I would of course advise parents to watch these with their young children to make sure the messages are received well and the information is understood.
