We are about to embark on another round of food challenges with Little B. He has become quite fussy of late, and unlike other parents I don’t have the ability to turn around and offer him alternative foods (Little B is currently allergic to some dairy, soy, egg, nuts and salicylates).
Normally this means that I have to rethink or recreate meals and snacks for him out of the ingredients he can already eat / tolerate. But after reading Jude Blereau's current book and chatting to our dietitian and paed gastro, I thought it was time for another round of food challenges. We are going to try in no particular order egg yolks, cashew nut butter and goat’s cheese. These are all good proteins, fats and low in salicylates.
I’m also aiming to take Little B along to a new naturopath who specialises in children and salicylate desensitisation, in the vain hope she can help us expand the variety of vegetables available to him.
As Meaghan has said at EcoMILF recently, you cant help worrying when your little one doesn’t want to eat. It’s the nurturer in us, it’s about being the mama.
Fingers crossed, I get one new food to incorporate into his menu.
