Food allergies are never fun, but best friends always are! "The BugaBees: Friends with Food Allergies" tells the story of eight best buggy friends and the different food allergies they face with positivity and poise. At home or at school, at the park or on the beach, BugaBees find ways to stay safe, have fun, and remember that the joy of friendship is far sweeter than any food they can or can't have.
Honored with several distinguished literary awards, "The BugaBees" has also received international praise from physicians, educators, and families of food allergic children. With captivating illustrations and clever rhyming verse, this app teaches children to be happy and healthy in spite of a food allergy diagnosis. Interactive storytelling supported by a special lessons section promotes food allergy awareness for users of all ages.
While a child could be allergic to any food, BugaBee characters are based on the eight foods that account for 90 percent of all allergic reactions: peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, milk, soy, eggs and wheat.

What's New in Version 1.1
Significant performance improvements.
I bought this for my 6 year old daughter with multiple severe food allergies. She really struggles with feeling left out over foods, and we found this to be an encouraging story dealing with just that. The illustrations are adorable, as are the character voices. I gave the app 4 stars though because there are some issues that need addressed -- you can't see all the words on screen, you can only read 1/2 paragraphs on some pages and others are completely cut off. This isn't a huge deal since the app reads the story to you, but still needs to be fixed. I also wish you could navigate back to the main menu once you're in the story or the lessons. In order to get back to the menu, you have to exit the app and restart. Overall, it's a good purchase considering the emotional issues connected to kids with food allergies, but I would expect a $4.99 app to not have these types of issues. I thank you though for creating a story that helps my daughter to deal with the difficult emotional side of food allergies.
Adorable and Educational!!
This story is a very fun and entertaining way to educate children about allergies! My kids love the animations and music, and have gained a sense of empathy towards their friends with allergies!
