The one thing that's not stated here is children that are seriously allergic to red dye that is in almost all foods, I have kids that are seriously allergic to red dye and made many trips to the emergency room cause of it, I found that really only organic and all natural foods don't have it and that can be really expensive to buy all the time so making your own foods is best for that one.

Welcome, @Crazy dragon mama ! You're right that it's really hard to deal with a food allergy to an ingredient that's in many foods. We have other folks who deal with "non Top 8" allergies like your family's on our forums ... why not hop over to our Food and Cooking forum and start a topic to share some of your tips and tricks? I'd definitely be interested in comparing notes!
