Copied and pasted from the food board as think I'll probably have more luck here...
Hi, My DD is has a dairy allergy, i am looking for snack ideas really. If she wasn't dairy free i'd give her yoghurt as a snack or dessert or maybe some cheese. At the moment i am always giving her fruit but i think she has too much and has quite a runny tummy. Mealtimes are boring but fine, meat fish veg pasta rice etc.
I dont give her peanuts yet due to all her allergy / excema (sp) blah blah, still don't know whether this is the right thing to do or not, it would probably be great for her as i do worry that she doesnt have enough fat in her diet. The toffutti cheese is a great idea, i've had that before myself. Oatcakes and frittata also good. Thanks.
Going to take a mini pitta out with me this afternoon.
Flapjack made with stork hard margarine. (You can make any cake with stork hard margarine, it's just harder to mix.) Popcorn. Sainsburys jaffa cakes, dark free from chocolate or most bourbon biscuits would give her extra calories. Just bought some McVities ginger nuts made with only vegetable oil. Bananas tend to be constipating so a good fruit to give. HTH
(very) ripe plantains slowly (shallowed) fried until yellow. The riper the plantain the sweeter it tastes fried- don't worry of the planitain is over-ripe / black. Just use slither knife to slice and then fry until yellow; turning once
Forgot to mention Nutramigen formula. There is Nutramigen 1 and Nutramigen 2 for older children. The taste isn't great but we kept dear son on N2 until he was 9 !!! It is full of vital supplements. The consultant and dietician were very pleased that we were able to do so. DD7 and DS5 are still on N2. They still drink it from a bottle as it is somehow tastes better. ACtually they are now very used to the taste and they ask for it and we stopped DS10 from having it as he would only drink it from a bottle. We told family that it was vital that they drink it and not to make fun of DCs drinking from bottle.
I am always thinking of importance of calcium for growth and bones. DS10 will now have to have calcium supplements as he doesn't get enough since coming off of N2.
Alpro soya yoghurt Alpro soya dessert Organix gingerbread men Breadsticks Any berries pureed up with oatly cream Homemade icecream (made with either coconut milk or oat cream) and lots of fresh fruit Avocado cut up into easily grabbable pieces I also make ds2 thick milkshakes by taking 2 oz hypoallergenic milk, a scoop of homemade icecream and a handful of berries, a bit of sugar/golden syrup to taste and blending together. He loves it. Sticks of toast with any of the following: toffutti cream "cheese" (vegan), Granovita vegetable or mushroom pate, Plamil chocolate spread or Holland and Barrett do a really yummy 100% fruit spread (Apple and Pear or Apricot and Apple, I think. Neither have added sugar so I think they're a bit better than jam).
