My 18 month old has had severe "eczema" since he was an infant. No matter what remedies we tried nothing ever seemed to help long term. I always thought that it could be food related so I took him for a RAST test and it turns out that he is in fact allergic to 4 of the 5 main food allergies (classes 3, 4, and 5) eggs - whites and yolk, peanuts, soy, and a mild allergy to wheat. Luckily he isn't allergic to dairy which is weird cause that was the one I was most concerned about.
He has to see an allergist and was prescribed epi pens (which scare the smurf out of me for some reason)
I am so overwhelmed with the news because those things are in almost everything! I went through my cabinets and tossed a bunch of things and went to Whole Foods and got started on as much gluten free food as I could find that would interest an 18 month old. This is what I have so far..
Can anyone help me with maybe a gluten free menu plan or give me some other safe alternatives for him that he will like that doesn't taste like ass? Or direct me to some sites for safe foods? I've been searching but I think I am a bit worn out on the entire thing. Anything will be much appreciated.
