The work you do is invaluable...cannot be measured...SOOOOOO incredibly important & SO reassuring to all who live with food allergies everyday. PLEASE keep up the good work that you do, and if there is ever ANYTHING we can do to...
Recent research shows that the flu shot is tolerated by almost everyone with an egg allergy: http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.org/resourcespre.php?id=163&title=Is_the_flu_vaccine_safe_for_egg_allergy? My son gets his flu shot in divided doses in the allergist's office. He is anaphylactic to even trace amounts of egg and has never had a reaction to the flu shot. Our allergist says that in recent years, the amount of egg protein in the flu shot is almost nothing. Before my son developed...
Product Review: We tried the Aged White Cheddar Puffs and really liked them. They are mild in flavor and not salty. I was worried that the puffs would have the texture of Styrofoam, but they didn't. They melt in your mouth. The entire bag was gone within minutes. If you like nutritional yeast, you'll like these Puffs.

Until I call to find out details this kills it for us! "This product is manufactured on shared equipment also used for dairy, soy, corn and wheat", not their fault that my son is so allergic, but I am really tired of not finding truly safe chips for my severely dairy allergic son!

I had a chance to try some samples of Cybele's cookies last week and they are terrific! Views and reviews expressed by volunteers reflect their personal opinions and not necessarily the views or opinions of Kids With Food Allergies Foundation.
We found shredded Diaya in chedder and LOVE it! It's not as good if it's not melted, but it tasted great on pizza and macaroni and cheese! I teared up when my three year old had his first taste of macaroni and "cheese". It melts great.
We have used the shredded cheddar and mozarella varieties in a number of recipes, and we love it. Melts great, smells like dairy cheeses, the melted texture is similar to milk-based cheeses, The Jalapeno variety was way too spicy for my son, age 11. Also keeps unopened for months, for weeks opened, and can be frozen. Only drawback is no calium or protein, really. Looking forward to trying the wedges...I wonder how the costs will compare?
Tried melting daiya wedge vegan "cheeses" - I put thin slices on bread then toasted in a toaster oven. Looks like it melts well. Views and reviews expressed by volunteers reflect their personal opinions and not necessarily the views or opinions of Kids With Food Allergies Foundation.
Hello, Does anyone know of a peanut/nut free snack bar that is portable, healthy and not loaded with refined sugars and ingredients that I can't even pronounce?! I know there are products out there that are peanut free but they are not very healthy. Any help would be much appreciated! Sahba
Hi Sahba! Welcome to KFA!! The one that comes to my mind is the bars from Enjoy Life Foods . Click on the flavors to see the ingredients lists and decide if you think they are okay in terms of refined sugar (evaporated cane sugar) and ingredients you can't pronounce. I sort of know what you mean but my tolerance is probably different from yours. I know that a lot of granola bars and fruit bars are indeed a risk for people with tree nut and peanut allergies. If the Enjoy Life ones don't work...
Hi Sahba Try PeanutFree Planet www.peanutfreeplanet.com, I believe... You need to read ingredients carefully, because they distribute products manufactured by many co's, and the ingredients vary widely by product; however, you can find snack bars and energy bars there. Try EnerPro...they might work for you. They work for my son, and are fairly high in protein. He also likes the Enjoy Life ones. I like the idea of making your own, too. Good Luck! TC
I am new to viewing this site, but this might be an answer to prayer! My three year old is now realizing she does not get the foods her sister and brother receive and this will be great if I can make her a pizza or tortilla with "cheese". The others we have tried do not taste well at all so hopefully this will be something new for her. Being allergic to dairy and egg and having a picky eater is quite a challenge! Thanks!
I am new to this sight and have a question. My Daughter was diagnosed with a deadly peanut allergy. Infact I almost lost her last year and had to rush her to the Hospital when My nanny gave her peanut butter without my consent. Today My Daughter ate Hidden valley ranch and sure enough with in minutes she had huge red blotches all around her mouth. How can I know what she was allergic to with so many ingredients? Its terrifying not knowing if your child eats something you don't know she is...
Hi Tricia, Welcome. I can see why you are so concerned. My first thought is to call the company and inquire about their product and manufacturing practices. It could be that the product was made on equipment shared with other products containing peanuts, but you will not know unless you ask. Shared equipment issues and advisory labeling do not have to be stated on the label - it's not a requirement of the current labeling laws in the U.S. Since you are new to Kids With Food Allergies...
Hi Adrianp! Welcome to KFA! The Daiya cheeses do contain coconut. You can view the ingredients here: http://www.daiyafoods.com/our-products/cheddar-wedge These may not be a choice for your child if you are avoiding coconut. I have heard that Daiya is the a lot better tasting than the rice cheese on the market. I encourage you to log in to the KFA Support Forums and post any questions you may have. We are here to help! http://community.kidswithfooda...rum/forum/main_forum
I have noticed that oatmeal-raisin is a common flavor for allergy friendly foods...what's funny is that my daughter is allergic to oatmeal and raisins (allergic to grapes). But I'm glad to see the chocolate chip and brownie varieties! I'll be on the lookout for these.
