Food Label Ninja Review

It’s a fun and interesting book for reading, the kids loved it and get most of the information about gluten free food.
Thank you .

My 8 year old loves this book, what a great resource to teach kids to read labels whilst making it fun. She also loved her badge and wears it proudly telling people about the book and what being Coeliac means.

Another 5 Stars

We love this just as much as How hayden found her favourite foods. This book has all the info needed to read labels and is very in depth. There has been no stone unturned and again very relatable. Maeve took this to school to show her home economics teacher who then asked me for the book link so that the school can order one. Another big congratulations on a great book. We have preordered the next and can’t wait.

Exactly what we were looking for

After searching high and low I'm so glad I found this!! This book starts off as a story but then Hayden has to complete a ninja quest. In this quest there is all the information we needed and each step of the quest had ninja training exercises we could practice with. I like how it finishes off resuming the story where Hayden practices what she's learnt at the shops and cafe. Even having the ninja badge as an extra for kids to wear just like Hayden does in the book is a nice touch. Would recommend this book over and over again.

Great book

This book is a gem and we’re loving every page of it! The activity questions have had my kids thinking and problem solving. It’s going to be such a confidence booster for them. It’s also good having the information coming from the book and not just me as Mum, as they always see me as nagging. The preorder badge was a highlight for them as well. I recommend selling these separately as I have 2 coeliacs who are now fighting over the badge lol. A big thank you for making these books, I would recommend them to anyone.

Happy Grandma

My coeliac granddaughter excitedly showed me the book she received yesterday. I know the basics but didn't fully understand the ins and outs/hidden facts of what I could purchase or cook for her when she visited, especially when she stayed overnight and it became quite stressful for me. The book is brilliantly set out with steps and actions that I can easily understand and follow and I have learnt quite a few things. I would recommend this book not only to children and immediate family but also to extended families and grandparents. I have now ordered my own copy as a reference and would like to congratulate the author on an outstanding job and I look forward to the rest of the series. Kind regards, Anne

The perfect tool to help gluten-free kids turn food challenges into tasty triumphs.

Being gluten-free doesn't have to be boring or tasteless, in fact, it can be the most fun Hayden has ever had!

  • Endorsed by Coeliac Australia and Allied Health Professionals
  • Uses adaptive coping strategies to navigate dietary change
  • Encourages dietary compliance through a fun world of exploration
  • Inspiring and entertaining story the whole family can enjoy
  • Vibrant and captivating illustrations

Hayden is just like every other kid her age, except for one small difference ... 

She's just been diagnosed with coeliac disease and finding it difficult to navigate the changes it's making in her life. 

One BIG change is that she now has to keep to a strict gluten-free diet and think more about what she's eating. It seems easy enough to just avoid gluten, but when she realises she'll never be able to eat her granny's homemade pie again, and everything she used to love tastes different, she goes in search of answers. Luckily, she finds even more than she bargained for, in the form of new and exciting recipes from a group of friendly gluten-free kids she meets from around the globe. And beyond. 

As well as finding a welcoming community where she can really be herself, Hayden also learns that it isn't just those with coeliac disease who have to eat gluten-free; there's a whole range of reasons why her new friends are gluten-free. It really is a community for everyone!

Once Hayden gets a taste for the limitless recipes available and learns how to make amazing gluten-free versions of her favourite meals, she discovers how much fun cooking can be. Soon, she starts to see that being coeliac isn't necessarily an annoyance, but something that can be enjoyed. 

How Hayden Found Her New Favourite Foods is part of a six-book series that will encourage and educate those on their own gluten-free journey. Through age-appropriate stories, young readers can navigate a diagnosis, adapt to dietary change, learn how to read food labels, manage cross-contact and overcome the social challenges of being gluten-free. This heart-warming series about a young girl learning to conquer her gluten-free lifestyle is sure to inspire and entertain.

I don’t typically leave reviews but I just had to come on to rave about these books! This is a beautifully optimistic book that our daughter Maeve related to straight away. It doesn’t dull down the impact of coeliac disease but rather sheds a different light on the situation at hand and different things to think about to help get through at an age appropriate level. Maeve is obsessed with Hayden and the international characters. We really loved Granny too. A big congratulations to the author for making these books and a big shout out to our nutritionist Michelle who sent us this website.

Wonderful book!

We bought this book for our 3.5 year old after she was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. Our daughter LOVES it! It's a wonderfully written book with lovely illustrations. It's very relatable for our daughter as the main character also has Coeliac Disease. Absolutely recommend this book!

Fantastic book with an educational and empowering message

This is a delightful and educational book that has really helped the confidence of my goddaughter. What truly sets it apart is its positive and empowering message for kids who may feel different due to their dietary restrictions. It encourages kids to embrace their uniqueness and teaches them that being gluten-free doesn't have to be a limitation but rather an opportunity for creative cooking and new food experiences. We love the colorful and vibrant illustrations which adds to its appeal.

Amazing - approved by my 8 year old

We bought this book for my newly diagnosed son. It has helped him feel better about eating gluten free. It has also helped his cousins and friends to understand his needs better. He is now asking if we can make Ben’s Berlines. My son has never been interested in cooking until now!! Thank you

Great book

Arrived in the mail today and our twins (both coeliac) read it at least a dozen times. They proudly displayed it in their room in eye sight so they could see it from their bed when it was sleep time. Great read and the pictures were great to. I look forward to getting them the other books.

The perfect book for young coeliacs

This outstanding book is a new favourite for my grandchild, who was diagnosed with coeliac last year. It made them feel special and connected to others facing the same challenges. It's well-written and beautifully illustrated. As a school librarian of 30+ years, I highly recommend it!

A wonderful relatable story

It is a beautifully written book that both my children related to, they were so excited to read about someone with similar struggles. They are looking forward to reading the other books that you will be releasing. Thank you for writing a book they were able to relate to and were excited to show their friends and family.

Great Resource

The author's approach to cognitive restructuring and acceptance themes in this book is incredibly effective and practical, making it an invaluable tool for any professional working with children who are dealing with health concerns. The book offers a clear and concise framework for helping children work through their concerns, and the language used is accessible and easy to understand. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a helpful resource in supporting children's mental health.
