Allergy Testing

We finally took my 1 year old daughter in for allergy testing this week. We've suspected multiples food issues for about 11 months and both of us have been gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and tomato free for about 10 months.

The tests confirmed that she is allergic to corn, dairy and peanuts. We still suspect intolerance to soy, wheat and tomatoes and will do some food trials in the coming weeks to retest these items. We never suspected peanuts but are glad to know about her allergy so that we can avoid any trips to the emergency room!

While we aren't happy that she has allergies, we are relieved to know that we aren't crazy, over protective new parents either. Our suspicions over the past year have actually been based on something real and all of the restrictions have been worth it.

This blog will still cater to those with multiple allergies since most products that are free of corn and dairy are also free of atleast one other common allergen. I will also be taste testing some recipes that hide veggies in foods and are allergy friendly, so if you have a picky eater at home, stay tuned!

I'd love to hear about any allergy friendly products that you or your family love. Or if there is a product out there that you have wanted to try but haven't yet, let me know and I will try to post a review.
