My DD really likes hummus so I tend t give sticks of celery with that. Also in pasta sauces clergy becomes quite sweet when cooked for a while, but I'm not sure if you need raw celery. Good luck, it would be great if you could cut down on one of your DS' allergies.

Ugh, celery is awful, nasty stuff. Why does he have to do a celery challenge? I'd be sick

Hi Babybarrister. Really don't envy you that's the marmite of vegetables! Sorry I don't have anything useful to say, but good luck for Thursday smile.

No ideas here as we all dislike celery too. - Not allergic to it though at least. BUT I was wondering what triggers you being allowed to do a food challange. DS is still so allergic to other things I was wondering if you have to not react to a skin test or something to do the food challenge? If so we could never get there sad

DS has high reading for egg- they only ever test raw egg and it was v high (although apparently not as high as the previous time) and nuts are getting worse, fish too. Ahh well. I won't hold my breath that it could be done any time soon. - Good luck with the celery challenge though. - I know what you mean about getting him to try it. - DS is so suspicious of any new food even when I make it and he knows it won't cause a reaction.

No ideas of any sort to make celery actually taste nice I'm afraid. grin

Did want to add my wishes of support though as I know how much difference it will make for you/ DH and especially DS to have 1 less allergy.

Just checking but I take it baked egg is in cakes/ biscuits etc and cooked is the egg actually cooked alone - as in fried/ boiled? Raw eggs pretty obvious though!

Don't tell my DS about the ketchup though he'll be envy He failed that challenge in May - and that's as just one chip dipped in it! Mindyou it took 4 hours for the rash to appear hmm

Fanbloodytastic grin! So, so pleased for you! Whilst scrutinising labels I often am surprised just how many things have celery listed.

ClaireOB Thu 22-Sep-11 19:24:02

very pleased for you and DS and hope you had a good (ketchup themed) celebration!

ChocaMum Thu 22-Sep-11 19:28:30

Excellent news for your ds! I hope he enjoys as much ketchup as he can eat! grin
