Food suggestions [Oct. 19th, 2012|02:05 pm]
Against the grain


I am looking for crackers/chips/snack ideas that I can feed my 3 and a half year old son. He cannot have any gluten, oats, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, nuts, sweet potato. We have to limit potatoes, rice, and tomatoes due to sensitivities. I am just looking for some other ideas for snacks and side dishes. The crackers we used to eat have corn in them, as do the chicken nuggets we used to eat. It is so hard with so many limitations. I feel so bad telling him he can't have foods he used to eat, but I know it will make him feel better. Any suggestions for foods or even recipes would be greatly appreciated. I tried to make mashed cauliflower one night and he was not a fan. I have made him tomato free ketchup since he eats ketchup on everything, and that works good. I am planning to try carrot fries, and we just found plantain chips that he loves. It was one thing before when we just had dairy, wheat and eggs, but now to take away more foods from him that he has already had is hard. Thanks!

How about seeds? There are a lot of raw foods and GAPS diet (grain-free) recipes out there that call for flax seeds, or sesame and sunflower seeds.



Watch out with the flax seeds though, they are high fiber and might give some digestive distress.

Oh also if you're avoiding corn you might want to look at the Facebook corn allergy group. Lots of people on there who are taking care of multiply-allergic kids, and are extremely creative with recipes on a limited diet.
