Yeah I was a little hesitant to research it all before as he generally eats well anyway. I've always avoided packet food and made things from scratch but since actually making a huge effort to check in things it is unbelievable the difference. It's a bit tricky around other people though. I don't want to be nagging and say no to others but I think I might just have to explain the situation a little more.
Does everyone use A2 milk?? I'm starting to question him on it.

I'd like to try this but DS eats such a small selection of food now that I don't know what he would eat anything at all.

Probably the main downfall is sauces, I occasionally make a batch of chutney but for example, we had some mayo with dinner last night and that had an antioxidant number on it (not a huge deal I know). Aside from sauces I rarely buy anything in packets. It is disheartening how much has 202/282 (?) in it.
I don't notice any difference in anyone's behavior but I feel happier if we are eating as cleanly as possible (We still have hot chips from the fisho etc, we are not angels!).
Does anyone know which brands of sauces are the best? i.e. mayo, sweet chilli, tomato (shock horror lol) etc. I shop at Aldi but will go to the big 2 for something specific if I need to.

I'm joining in too. My eldest boy is 4 and just lately he has been complaining about a sore tummy after some foods. It seems to only be chocolate products (chocolate custard and choc uht milk) and the only numbers are in the 400's. Does anyone know if they cause problems?

As for the A2 milk I can't comment. It has a different protein which is supposed to be easier to tolerate. The lactose is the same as other milks though.

Aldi are usually pretty good I think, they have a rep for avoiding the nasties. We can't use a lot of their stuff tho. We do buy their rice cakes, they are 100% brown rice and no additives.

Thank you for that. We are not gluten free, but with clean eating I have noticed a big reduction in the amount of gluten we are eating.
I will keep an eye out for that mayo. I've also seen Fountain does a sugar free sauce range. I'm not sure what else is in them though
I've switched to coconut Aminos instead of soy, I really like it!
Aldi has a lot of good products, but a lot of their products have that 202/282 (can't remember which one) preservative in it. I know they avoid artificial colors and flavors in their products though.
