Many children from 5 to 18 year have food allergies. Although most children "outgrow" their allergies allergy to peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish may be life-long. Once diagnosed, most children can often find it confusing and difficult to understand why their body reacts differently to certain foods.
With this and other diseases and conditions in mind, Dr. Kim Chilman-Blair and Dr. Kate Hersov teamed up with a former Marvel graphic novel artist to create a series of comic books. Each comic is written by doctors and peer-reviewed by leading specialists in each respective therapy area. Medikidz is a resource designed to educate not only young patients, peers and their parents, but also to aid practitioners and educators in explaining health conditions as effectively as possible.
The books follow a team of five larger than life superheroes. The Medikidz each specialise in explaining a different part of the body. What's up with Paulina? is an engaging way to educate children about Food Allergy.
