Spryte Posted June 15, 2012 Share Posted June 15, 2012 Is there an app for this? My grocery store visits are crazy-making. I am having the worst time keeping up with all of our family members' food requirements. DS8 has been allergic to peanuts, lentils, tree nuts, coconut, sesame, and banana most of his life. Even trace amounts, so those have to stay out of the house completely. I've got that one down due to lots of practice. Now he's developed a wheat allergy. True allergy to wheat, not a Celiac issue - so for him, it's actual wheat not gluten. But we still have to watch for cross contamination with his other allergens. Okay, working on that one, learning. He also has Oral Allergy Syndrome to many raw fruits and veggies, but we can have them in the house, he just can't eat them. Now I have developed allergies to spinach and egg yolk. Ugh. Okay, we can work with that. I am also gluten free, as gluten makes me have terrible stomach cramping though I have not tested positive for Celiac. For me it's not just wheat, but seems to be any gluten at all. I am still learning on this one, so know very little other than how very sick I feel after the tiniest bit of gluten. Now... Doc wants me very low fat, less than 15 gms per day, and vegan if at all possible (to help with inflammation). Of course, since kiddo is anaphylactic to nuts and seeds - those have to stay out the house. Aaaaaahhhhhh! Baby is, at doc's request, avoiding milk products to see if helps the eczema that popped up as soon as we introduced cow's milk. Oh. My. Goodness. The label reading is nuts, excuse my pun, and I find that if I remember one person's requirements, I forget another's! How on earth do you moms who have kids with multiple different food allergies do it??? (I think this was just a rant, but if you have tips, I would welcome them!)
