Thank you so much for this article. I have a son who is 9 years old and has EOE. He's allergic to almost all fruits and vegetables, nuts, barley, soy, corn, potatoes, rye, etc. He does not eat any kind of meats , fish, poultry. He got so tired of rice that now he can't even see it. Now the doctors decided that he should not eat anything that has wheat, milk and eggs on it because they believe that's what is making the disease worse. What should I do? I'm seeing a dietitian and everything she...

Welcome Rosangela! We are glad you found us. I second the recommendation to post on our EOS forum: http://community.kidswithfooda...sinophilic_disorders Is your son on any type of formula? A formula can take the guess work out of the nutritional side of things. I know we have some members with older children that are drinking Neocate, Elecare or E028 juice box type drinks.

Hello Rosangela I agree with the suggestions made for you to post on the EOS forum. You are not alone and there are many parents in the group who may be able to provide support and share their experiences. I am hoping the dietitian you are seeing has a significant level of experience with children who have not only food allergies, but experience with more challenging cases such as eosinophilic disorders. Formulas definitely are useful in meeting nutritional needs as well as giving the...

great article thank you.quick question. Most of the bread and cereals are fortified with folic acid. I just started to make my own bread since its hard and expensive to buy gluten free bread that has no soy and corn. Could I add folic acid to the bread I make myself?

Did he not like the taste of quinoa or could not digest it? I found one great quinoa cereal which I give to my son with a fruit puree (any fruit he can have) and it comes out ok. http://www.amazon.com/gp/produ...ct?ie=UTF8&psc=1 can your son have garbanzo beans? you can make bread with it. can your son have coconut milk? Good subs for milk.

Does "smaller" refer to height, weight, or both? I'm wondering how much of the size difference has to do with nutritional deficiencies vs. an overall awareness of our diets. Because we read every label, every time, we notice not only allergen-containing foods, but also artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners. Our kids eat a lot less junk food than average American kids, and we eat out a lot less too (restaurant food tends to be higher in fat and sodium than home-cooked food). That...

Thank you for this article! I've always suspected that my 8 year old son's food allergy to dairy, eggs and nuts had something to do with his small size and this article helped affirm my suspicions. I've often been told by family that I'm a "helicopter mom" when it comes to making sure he eats and eats good. I do it because I know he has to make up with foods that will give him the equivalent or if not similar nutrients from foods he's allergic to. And with his high metabolism, it doesn't...
