I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.
If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.
I probably haven't mentioned that our daughter was allergic to blueberries when she was just a year old. Oh, I was so excited that she liked them -- another fruit to add to the list. Her face was a little red after eating them, but she was always a little red in those days. I gave her blueberry pancakes soon after and she broke out in hives. Noooooo, I thought, but she liked them.
I held off testing her for blueberries until the other day. She devoured them. I told her we had to watch for food allergies (she understands what that means, now). We waited and waited and no hives or even redness. "Hooray," we shouted! So happy to have another fruit to add to her diet. We recently discovered that she likes blackberries, too. Good timing, too.
