My heart and prayers go out to all you moms and kids dealing with food allergies. I know it's hard. Our son is 20 months and we've known about his milk/egg/peanut allergies since his anaphalactic reaction to milk at 8 months. Next week we have our first annual blood test to see if anything has improved. Strict avoidance has kept us from having a second reaction. Daily clariton together with avoidance has all but cleared up his eczema, too.

We are still finding creative ways to cook for our son. My latest super trick has been substituting 3 tb of applesauce per 1 egg when baking. I've made banana bread, brownies, and choc chip cookies (with raisins instead of chips) this week and all tasted totally normal with the applesauce. It feels like such a victory!!!

My biggest sadness is not being able to eat out with our son. My biggest fear is starting school if he hasn't outgrown the allergies by then.

Hang in there moms. It seems to get easier as time goes on.
