Allergies in my son
19-12-2011 08:25 #2
My son is also 9 months and has a bad allergy to egg whites and yolks and also wheat.
He has only had egg once where he blistered, swelled and rashed instantly. When he has anything containing wheat his eczema flares up.
Heres what he eats
Breaky - rafferties garden multigrain cereal with pureed fruit (its wheat free)
Lunch - homemade savoury muffins, rye cruskits with avo or cream cheese, rice cakes wth avo or cream cheese or rice noodles/pasta
Dinner - Whatever we have (the bits he can have) and a jar of vege puree
He has snacks too. Fruit, rice cakes, yogurt, cheese sticks.
We buy a lot from the allergy friendly section in coles. Im so used to reading labels now. I have wheat free flour and egg re placer so I can bake for him.
If you have anymore questions just ask

hi girls. my son is allergic to eggs and nuts and i bought a cookbook from facebook called Edans kitchen and its been handy.
also there is a group on facebook that has been my lifeline http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/110760385678767/
i checked the bubhub guidelines and i think i am allowed to post that link
also search for the "no E.N.D. cookbook" (no eggs nuts dairy)
i like to make savoury muffins alot , my boy is 19 months old, and use puree apple or pumpkin as a substitute for eggs or use the egg replacement mixture.

The allergy section in Coles is definitely a lot better than it used to be.
I find it easier to allergy cook if I stockpile a bunch of recipes that are suitable and print them out. Then I put them in a folder so I can look through them when it's time to do the grocery shopping. I roughly figure out what's going to get eaten for the week (planning what I need/want to cook), write down what I need to get for each recipe and transfer than to a shopping list.
It takes a little bit of effort to begin with, but if you sort your recipes into sections it saves SO much time later on. You can even write on the recipes how much your LO likes them

We keep some commercial safe foods go the cupboards for those times when you just don't have time and then the makings for the rest. If your whole family isn't changing diet, we mark safe foods with stickers so my son knows what he can and can't have. Something to keep in mind as they get older. Also if you are breastfeeding still then you may need to go on the same diet until he weans, I found my son sensitive enough to egg that if I had it he would still get excema from it.
It takes some adjusting but once you've made the initial changes it gets easier.
