Wheat, Gluten, Egg Allergy

My son is 10 months old and we just found out he is allergic to wheat/gluten and eggs. Does anyone have any advice on finger-foods I can feed him? I give him a lot of fruits and veggies right now, but I want to introduce as many new foods as I can. I am desperate for any advice as to how to handle these kinds of food allergies!

  • I am not to familiar with wheat allergies, but do know for egg/milk.


    Below is a few sites that I know sell allergy products your son could eat...it's always good to have some of these things around as quick snacks to take, or if you get invited to a party etc..


    http://www.enjoylifefoods.com/ ( Henry's, Whole Foods)


     http://www.cherrybrookkitchen.com/ ( Super Target sales their stuff in the baking aisle)


    http://iansnaturalfoods.com/allergen_free.html ( For this company make sure to get only the foods that have the red label and say on the front the exactly what it is allergen free of. Some people get confused because they also make regular foods too, so make sure you don't pick up the back of the box.)

  • Oh for the cherrybrook too, make sure you only get the boxes that are also wheat free. I think they are always white/purple. Unfortunately those are harder to find. You may have to order it.

    Good products though.

  • For pasta look for the Tinkiyada brand brown rice pasta. It is really yummy, good texture.

  • Anything by Enjoy Life will be safe. It is free of the top 8 allergens. You can also get Glutino products, but SOME contain egg, so be sure to read the labels. My son LOVES Kinnikinnik animal cookies. They actually are really good, EVEN being gluten free. You can give Ener-G breads. We like to give DS the brown rice bread, because it is whole grains. You can also get the cookbook, "Cooking Free," which has GREAT wheat/gluten free and egg free recipes.

  • WOw what a bad mixture! Poor little guy! I have a severe egg allergy and have come up with tons of baking recipes for myself, muffins, cookies cakes etc but I do use flour in them I suppose you could sub for glutten free flour. If you want them email me. Good snack options are dried fruits, sliced fruits with yogurt or peanut butter for dips, dried veggie chips are great (not the powdered then fried kind a lot use egg as an emulsifer but the actual dehydrated veggies) my son LOVES those! You can get them in the bin isle at HEB Plus or Central Market here (or make your own in the oven slice veggies rub with olive olive and salt and season with whatever you like then broil in the oven) . Cherry tomatos, carrots, etc with ranch. Pinwheels are great you can do them without the tortilla with meat, cheese, shredded carrot and cucumber and cream cheese rolled together. Its hard with allergies but it will come to you! GL!
