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!Answer Question
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/Â ( Henry's, Whole Foods)
Â http://www.cherrybrookkitchen.com/Â ( Super Target sales their stuff in the baking aisle)
http://iansnaturalfoods.com/allergen_free.htmlÂ ( 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.
