Please read, before reading

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.

Question time

I am a little at a stand still on this blog lately.  I alway have things to share, but I'm not sure what you the readers are really interested in reading about.

So, I open this up to you.  You can either post a comment below or e-mail with a question about dairy-free, egg-free or nut-free diets or just about raising a toddler. It can be about specific products, getting toddlers to eat, or how to explain to family members. Nothing is off limits.  I will be addressing your questions in a future post.

Remember if you wonder, others might be wondering, too.


  1. I'm always looking for easy recipes I can fix in bulk, freeze in individual portions and keep at my 1yr-old's sitter for those days she can't eat what the other children are having.

    Also, I'd love your input on these articles:

  2. I really enjoy your blog, my son is almost 2 1/2 and has nuts/legume ,soy, egg, and wheat as food allergies along with every single outdoor pollen, mold, etc along with severe eczema. He also has a dairy allergy but because we were unaware until last year he seems to have built a resistance to it so he can have milk, butter, yogurt, etc.
    I like just being able to hear/read other people's experience/idea of dealing with their child's allergies. It makes me feel like I am not alone and that he is not alone either.
    I also like how you share products and recipes that I can try that I didn't know were out there as well as crafts you do with your daughter, especially the one about painting the wooden eggs instead of dying regular ones.
    I say just keep doing what your doing and thanks! :-)

  3. I just found your blog today while looking for recipes for my 18 month old son. He's allergic to all dairy, wheat, eggs, oats, and because of all the negativity we've read about soy, we've chosen to not follow that route. His allergic reactions come in the form of severe eczema. It's horrible. I hate to take him in to public sometimes because it's so bad. We are on a very limited budget, and I feel like all I can feed him is rice, most meats/beans, and most fruits and veggies, which when you think of it is quite a bit to choose from, but I struggle with how to prepare the foods to make them appetizing for him, as well as easy to prepare for me (I'm a homeschooling mom of 4, so I stay busy a lot)and I want to keep his meals balanced, and I want to be able to give him sweet treats every now and then. I've seen all the gluten free flours and products, but right now they are out of our price range. I guess what I really am asking for is I need convenience, or like another reader said, things I can make ahead of time and freeze, so I'm not in the kitchen cooking 2 different meals, 3 times a day. I'm so thankful I found your website, thanks so much for sharing all this wonderful info!


  4. Great comments! Thanks! I will be addressing some of your concerns in the next week -- stay tuned!

    More comments welcomed!
