DD has severe food allergies, HELP

We just found out DD3 had severe allergies...eggs/chicken, dairy, soy, gluten, nuts, tomatoes, strawberries, and a ton of environmental ones. She is almost 4, no longer BF'ing and I am desperate to find things to make her that DH and 3 other kids will eat too. Please help

Re: DD has severe food allergies, HELP

Dealing with food allergies/intolerance is very difficult. I know there are some good kid-geared allergy friendly cookbooks out there, although I haven't tried any of them myself. You might try searching Amazon.com...

But as a word of encouragement, usually when multiple allergies show up like that, they aren't all really allergies. What I mean by that is that one allergen reaction will set off others. You might find that once you get her system cleared up, you can reintroduce most of the foods without issue.

I really hope so. We spent new years in the ER because of a severe reaction. We have a 2nd appointment with the immunologist tomorrow to see if it may be what you said, secondary reactions.
