He is allergic to wheat, fish, soya, eggs, cows milk, peanuts At the moment he is having 'free from' toast and vitalite and fruit for breakfast, toast and veggie pate for lunch (and fruit) and roast dinner for tea (which is a right fanny on if you don't mind me saying)But he loves it and manages really well. And breast milk. We are waiting for an appointment to see a dietician but any suggestions in the meantime would be gratefully recieved! TIA B
How about?: -rye bread -cooked polenta cut into finger food with veggies -cornmeal/rice pasta with a sauce (pureed carrots, tomatoes, mushrooms etc) - steamed veggies and sliced or mashed avocado/hummous (although not sure if you are avoiding hummous due to sesame content) - doves farm or other wheat free cereals - have you tried lactofree milk products? - lentil patties with steamed veggies - falafel - Strips of chicken and other meats - chips
are you doing any spoonfeeding or avoiding that altogether?
Thank you for your responses! Avoiding tomatoes after we tried him with homemade bolognase - waiting to test for that. Will look up Doves farm and check out polenta (have never had/ cooked polenta)is that potato? We do loads of veggies and chips (homemade ) and he has had beef, chicken pork. Will look up lactofree - is that a brand? Am notspoon feeding as he doesn't like it/ won't have and he is doing so well feeding himself. He s 8 months. He alsmost had corn pasta but had to call an ambulance when he started wheezing after the smallest dab of sauce - so can give that a try.
we get a kids wheat free pasta from tesco with bob the builder on. She's only 10mo so doesn't give a stuff about bob but it's smaller and easier to eat. Also lots of broccoli. Organix do different rice cakes and cereal bars no wheat or dairy. Goodies have some crisps too. We also give her jelly and fruit puree but if you're not using a spoon that's not much good..
