Steph - that's a good point - about prioritising health issues (food allergies over cancer risk). I still am uneasy of introducing another health risk into my son's life, however. My son has 8 food allergies that we know of so far including wheat and potatoes, EoE plus environmental and I have several food involving severe anaphylactic responses to soy and shellfish and all seafood and many environmental allergies as well we both have autoimmune issues. I will look at the Safe Eats...

Hugs Helen~. I can certainly understand the cancer concern as my husband is a lung cancer survivor. We also balance 4 kids (1 of whom is autistic with many developmental delays), food allergies, etc. I don't worry overly much re things like junk food, lunch meat etc. My kids all eat fruit and veggies, whole wheat stuff, things like salmon, etc. For my peace of mind, I have to pick and choose my battles. Anyway, do check out our resources, forums, etc.

Hugs Helen - our life experiences and personal medical history can also effect our priorities. We all do what we feel is right and just hope we've done due diligence and made the best choice. Please check out our forums (here is our GI disorders forum ) and recipes collection . If you see a recipe that looks promising, we can usually help to find substitutes and "healthier" versions of things. We are here to support you where ever you are along your journey.

Yup. For instance, I am all about environmental safety and recycling and such, but for two years when I had small children, was a single mom and had no dishwasher, I bought an obscene amount of paper plates and cups, rather than having to face a huge mound of festering dishes that I simply could not face. Do I think it was the healthiest and most ecologically-sound option? Nope. Would I recommend it to another mom going through the same thing? Absolutely. Regarding processed meats, I...

Some simple ideas but I am confused as why you are suggesting parents give their kids processed lunch meats, pepperoni, etc. These processed meats often contain wheat as filler and are filled with carcinogenic nitrates. Even if you find a wheat free pepperoni or lunch meat, they are still full of unhealthy levels of sodium and fat. I can't believe a health professional is actually pushing lunch meat as a healthy lunch!

As always, read labels to ensure the food is safe for your allergy set. Yes, some of these do include processed lunch meat. While not the healthiest, it is a good protein source and everything in moderation. These lunches are paired with veggies and fruit, so a good balance overall imo.

I disagree with idea that a twice weekly consumption of pepperoni or salami for a child is "moderate". Find me a pediatric oncologist who would recommend such a diet. And look at the American and Canadian Cancer societies for nutritional advice - both advise to avoid these foods.

We all have to do what is best for our own families. For instance, my son is allergic to various foods that other kids take for routinely might take for lunch (eggs, dairy) as well as peanuts, tree nuts - and the sesame and mustard allergy rules out most forms of sausage, salami, and other kinds of lunch meat, unless it is a special brand (read: pricey). For a child with few protein options who can't have it, they often want it. It doesn't mean I would let him eat it every day even if he...

We're sorry that you are finding the lunch alternatives unhealthy. We try to appeal to a wide range of parents and realize that everyone needs to make decisions based on their family's needs including prep time and cost. With that in mind, healthy often translates to "safe" foods. There are healthier versions - low fat, low sodium, uncured meats.

Helen, what allergies are you managing? I will state up front that the immediate tasks of avoiding our many allergens and filling my 4 kids' bellies 3+ x/day while educating them and running a household, plus manging a tight budget and maintaining my sanity, are always going to get priority over strict adherence to best practices for cancer avoidance. The perfect can be the enemy of the good, sometimes. Parenting kids with food allergies is a daily dip in the puddle of stress. I think we can...

I am new to this food allergy thing. My son also has EoE and has now been put on the six food elimination diet. i love to bake. to have purchased buckwheat flour, quinoa flour and tapioca flour. I want to make a flour blend that is also nutritious. I'd like to make his bread as well as muffins pancakes, and anything else a 2 year old might like. I'm not sure of the nutritionsl content of the king Arthur flour blend that you've recommended. I will definitely use that when making cakes etc,...

If coconut is safe, there is coconut aminos. Otherwise, I've had good success using umeboshi vinegar. It doesn't have the same depth of flavor (or color - it's purple which can be an odd color in some things), but give that salty "bite" to things. Another options is balsamic vinegar plus salt. That's a little sweeter though. If you can do fish, nuc mam (Vietnamese fish sauce) is another option.
