My grandson has multiple food allergies - NEED HELP!!!

Found out this summer that my 9-yr-old grandson has a real mess of food allergies making for a nightmare for my daughter, mother to 3. He has always been a picky eater so having about 90% of the foods he did like yanked from his diet has been just horrible for him - and her. Some of his allergies include: MILK, SOY, RICE, OATS, CORN (seems most prepared foods have corn in some form in it), MANY VEGGIES (including TOMATOES - taking ketchup out of the picture..).

I have pledged to them I would do all I could to find resources on the internet - websites, social media - WHATEVER - to try to  help both of them. She homeschools all of her children and now the time she has to spend in the kitchen to invent food combinations - even condiments - is really overwhelming. Can anybody help with the name of groups on cafemom or websites? Thank you so much!!

Wow.....eliminating milk, soy and rice takes out ALL milks and dairy except almond milk. If she cooks from scratch, she can make her own things using almond milk in place of milk. Things are going to have to be really plain. Chicken nuggets should still be ok. I would just make them at home to make sure none of those items are in them.
