Doodles
My daughter has just been diagnosed with wheat, egg, milk, soy, and corn allergy. Anyone have any advice?
90% of what she eats has just been eliminated and we're struggling to find things she can and will eat.
The itch episodes and respiratory problems she was having led us to get her tested.
Please offer suggestions.
Additional Details
And also peanuts.

When you have another child dont get them vaccinated. Thats likely the problem. Look up kids who have never had vaccines or drank fluoridated water and see they rarely get sick and have higher IQ's


Astonos
feed her cardboard


Looked Down and I was Smoking
Tell her to eat Pizza for breakfast .


Chgritq J
dont give her any ???


Penguin Angel
dont let her eat any of that. Give her processed tofu in a blender


Kjfv D
dont feed her all that stuff.

Okay, chances are she's not equally allergic to all of them - try testing again to see which foods produce the worst allergic reactions. Perhaps she should eat the less noticeable or harmful ones. I'm supposedly allergic to milk, as it causes slight mucus buildup, but that doesn't stop me.


striker#2
TOFU.

you can make it healthy, and very good.
just make sure you get the organic kinds

you can find it in the produce section in Publix.

poor girl :(

its like being allergic to nuts, you have to check the labels on anything before buying it

its gonna be hard, but theres nothing more you can do than to be careful


Crysta
oh that's tough. I'm sorry I don't have much to advise, but did the doctors give you any suggestions on a new diet for her. Or you may be able to google different dietery restrictions and see what is suggested. It's really hard to stay away from those things, good luck!

There are lots of gluten free pasta, breads and biscuits in most supermarkets. You could make bread and pizza bases & buscuits with wheat and corn free flower. Another option would be to cook more veg...make soups...

Are you struggling with specific meals?

that is terrible and i am sorry...

however, if she is still young, it is fairly common for children to "grow" out of these allergies. Keep hope!

Absolutely get a second opinion. That's a huge diagnosis to trust one source with making.

Almond and rice milk are both great, and there's plenty of gluten-free products available. Look into vegan cooking, and you'll have a lot of luck. (As far as baked goods, I really recommend "My Sweet Vegan," it's wonderful) Really read labels carefully, milk especially likes to hide in everything.

Jello!
Apple sauce!

Did she get tested for peanuts? My Son has food allergies, but peanuts are the worst and would kill him.

I think RICE is one of the safest foods. you don't give her age, but there is baby rice cereals, and anything rice based. Mashed potatoes are also good, and they are loaded with vitamins..I would make all natural potatoes, minus the milk/butter, use water to thin it down. Carrots should be food too. Meats rarely have allergic reaction, turkey/chicken/lean ground beef prepared accordingly for her age. You may want to try plain Cheerios for snack (if she is old enough) and Cheerios are fortified with vitamins. Mashed bananas, also healthy.

maybe you could take a look at this cookbook:

Wow, that's pretty scary!

I have a friend who has similar allergies. She has to go on a purely vegan diet. You might try other vegetables and mushrooms, and fruits and nuts- provided that they won't cause a reaction. You might still be all right with oatmeal, but check with an allergist to be sure.

Good luck!

you could ask a dietition


Sprunt
Almond milk is a great substitute. You can also find gluten free products in health food stores. Take her to an allergist as well!


Mosie
I would query the valididty of the test that was done. Just make sure that is was a reliable person that done the test such as local doctor or paedrician. There are many many quacks out there cost a fortune and only put the patient at very high risk of nutritional deficincies. Be careful

for grains - rice or rice noodles
for protein - there are lost of legumes like lentil, beans & chick peas
also meats.
for starches - potatoes or sweet potatoes, dasheen, cassava etc. (can also make breads from some of these)
Eat lots of vege & friuts.

She may need to take a calcium supplement.

EDIT: I saw someone say TOFU - No!! Tofu is made from Soy.

Special companies make certain, non-allergenic, foods for people with allergies. Don't worry, she will probably outgrow some of those allergies. I outgrew my egg allergy around 5-6 years old.

Try this website. It has been very helpful for our family. It has lots of great advice, tips for eating in, eating out and just living day to day with these types of allergies.

1. Hopefully this is only temporary.

2. Seek a few more professional diagnoses.

3. Be positive that she has not been bitten
by a poisonous insect or reptile...?

4. Fruits, especially cranberries, peaches, and grapes...
are excellent for people that suffer from allergies...

5. Beef, poultry, fish, and various crustations should be okay.

6. Unleavened bread such as pita bread might be okay.

7. Potatoes, bananas, and mushrooms are good for potassium.

8. Name brand peanut butter such as Jiff should be okay.

9. Green vegetables should be okay.

10. Veggie pasta and tomato based sauces should be okay.

rice products are plenty.

wow, i'm sorry to hear that. Try vegan cookbooks, they have alot of good recipes not containing those products and a substitute list for others.


I'd rather be at the beach
I'm so sorry to hear about that!!! We've got the same sort of issues in our family.

My little niece is allergic to all the things you've just listed (except corn) and my son is allergic to soy and intollerant to dairy, oats and apples

Allergies can come and go, which is great! My cousin was terribly allergic to corn when she was 1-2 years old. Now she's 3 and it doesn't bother her at all! So she may outgrow some of these (maybe all of them!)

My son drinks goats milk (since he can't have dairy or soy) or rice milk. They also make rice cream (for ice cream) and he eats goats cheese. I saw on the carton they make goat's butter, but I've had trouble finding it around here. So I'm just using coconut oil, instead of butter, for him. You can also use 100% pure maple syrup as a sweetener

There's a great book called the Dairy free, egg free, wheat free diet (I think that's what it's called!) and they give lots of great recipes. Rice checks are a cereal she can eat, or oat meal. Maybe Kix?
I would have her eat a lot of fruits, veggies, meats, soups, stews, that sort of thing. She's going to be one healthy girl! =)

Corn is really tricky I think! Corn syrup is in everything!! It's even in medicine like Motrin and tylenol (because of corn syrup they use for flavoring) My aunt would have the pharmacy mix up medicine for my cousin. There are actually support groups online for parents of children with corn allergies.

Once you get into the routine, and once you figure out what she's able to eat, it gets easier.

I wish you the best of luck!!!
