Teething Cookies  Allergy Friendly Recipe

The teething stage can be stressful for everyone. Parents suffer as much as children, especially due to the impotence that they feel during this stage. But what happens when on top of what you are going through during teething, you have to then be vigilant about everything your child eats because they have food allergies?

This is why this is such a good recipe for families to make. By incorporating ingredients that your family will be tolerant to, you are making teething cookies that will not only help your toddler while he/she is teething, but also that will be safe for them.

Let’s take a look at the recipe:
