    i haven't started yet but will be soon..

    my ds1 has ongoing ecezma, asthma and allergies.. and I am sure that hie bahviour could be improved by dropping some of the numbers as he doesn't sleep as well in the last 6 mths (always fabulous sleeper, but in last 6 mths is not that great).

    I am basically dairy free myself at the moment as my 4 mths old has very bad reflux and has been diagnosed with failure to thrive and I am trying anything i can to try to help her.. she just will NOT eat (dr telling me she may need top be tube fed.. yikes)

    where do you suggest i start with the additives.. i think my hubby would freak if we did the whole failsafe thing..

    I think most sultanas are sulphur free. My thing is I don't like the ones with oil so I get fussy with them.

    Wild at heart - sorry to hear about both bubs health issues. Hopefully trying additive free will help your DS.

    I started by looking at the website "additive alert"
    i would get something out of the pantry and look at the ingredients. There is a section of the website where you can type in a name or number of something and see the health risks. Then i would try and find a replacement for this item the next time i went shopping.

    The easiest thing to change (and probably the thing that affects kids most) is Bread and Preservative 282. We only get bread from Brumby's or Baker's Delight (your local baker might also be preservative free but it's best to check their ingredients).

    Pre-packaged snacks are most often full of additives. So it's best to make things like muffins, slices, cakes, etc at home.

    If there is a specific product you would like to know a replacement for you can always post in here and we can see if anyone buys something safe that is similar

    Hope this helps. Feel free to keep asking questions

    we've found many of the supermarket brands are processed using sulphur (it's not counted as an ingredient so they dont have to list it) and DS will react to them. Same with many dried fruits.

    Whilst myself and my family are not currently living additive and preservative free, and I haven't read through this entire thread, I just wanted to recommend a site which I think you'll all find inspirational:

    No problem. I was very confused when i started (and still make mistakes now!), i wished i could have had a starting place or people to ask advice back then.

    As far as im aware only Woolworths stocks Macro. In our local woolies they are located in two sections...near the gluten free/Health food area and next to the tinned fruit (this is the dried fruit and nuts). The packs are all a dull green colour and fairly simple.

    Adding another biscuit to the list...Arnotts Butternut Snaps. (My mum was just using them to make mini cheesecakes. yum, gotta love staying with mum while on holidays )
