    Default Dairy Wheat & Soy allergy

    Hi,
    My 10 month old daughter has recently been diagnosed with a dairy, wheat and soy allergy. I am breast feeding her 4 times a day and she has 3 solid feeds a day consisting of farex rice cereal for breakfast, mashed vegies and fruit for lunch, fruit and mini rice cakes or rice rusks (Baby Mum Mums) for snacks and mashed vegies and meat for tea.
    Can anyone help me with some more ideas for foods especially finger foods, or some other helpful forums, Facebook pages or websites? Is there anyone else with children with similar allergies?

    Thanks J

    My DS also had these allergies and I did what you are doing for years. But it's harder as they get older and go to parties. In fact I think without dairy and soy they have a great foundation for health food later as there is little you can buy.

    Make things with Oats - porridge, anzac biscuits with dairy free butter etc.
    There are some other types of oat based cereal as well. I think Oat flakes and also corn flakes, rice bubbles.
    There is a biscuit that is made only with Oatflour - it is round and it was in the international section of the groceries. I can't remember the name,
    If they can have eggs then you can make haps at home using rice and oat flour and nuttalex butter. My son also couldn't have eggs but we used egg replacer and made heaps at home.
    For summer make your own iceblocks from fruit.
    I also used to do dips - corn or rice crackers with dip.
    Dried fruit.
    I used to fry sausages and then cut them up small for take out snacks
    Make your own mini muffins,
    Mini sushi with cucumber - in a little while when ready
    Make your own chicken nuggets from chicken breast and crushed rice crackers and then fry - can do the same with fish.
    Meat balls.
    I would also give her asparagus to much on - kids seem to love stick shaped things, capsicum too and baby corns. He used to eat those as snacks.
    Cherry tomatoes are great to take out and about.
    Cucumber sticks.
    There is rice and millet pasta from Organ that is great.
    Bread is the tough one. I am not sure I ever found bread with no wheat or soy but there might be one somewhere.
    Good luck.

    Cucumber sticks with homemade avocado dip or hummus

    Rice cakes with avocado or nut butters

    Mini falafels , mini meatballs, veggie patties , crab or fish cakes

    Corn on the cob is a great finger food at that age and keeps them occupied for ages trying to eat it !!

    Also try quinoa flour or quinoa or rice crumbs for baking or crumbing and I used to make puffed quinoa cereal for DS and just added fresh pear or banana

    I would have a look at some Paleo recipes, very popular at the moment, and mostly they avoid wheat, soy and diary I think, and are usually also quite healthy.
    Coconut oil works quite well to replace butter in most recipes and I have even heard of using chia seeds to replace eggs.
    Sarah Wilson's I quit sugar recipes are often wheat and dairy free, or have suggested substitutions, and also pretty sure they are free from soy too. Lots of them have eggs, but not all.
    She has a kids recipe book, but might be more useful for when bub is older.
    For the moment I would just concentrate on giving bub mainly veges, fruit and meat.

    If they are allergic to egg use the egg substitute, "No Egg" from Organ.
    If there is a cake that calls for egg you just add the "No Egg" as a substitute and you would never know the difference. I used it for years and everyone was surprised that there was no difference.

    Following, we've discovered a nut and dairy allergy but need to see specialist in a few weeks for testing. I'm thinking there may be soy as well as I just started replacing the dairy in my diet and his eczema seems to be getting worse than when I just ate diary

    My ds was allergic to dairy, soy, wheat, eggs and gluten until he was around 3-4 yrs. I had to avoid all of these while bfing as even traces passed through my milk. We ate lots of hommus, corn pasta and fruit/veggie fingers steamed. It takes a bit of practice and it's a pain always having to pack snacks instead of eating out but there are plenty of alternatives and websites with allergy free recipes for kids.
