Welcome to Allergykids.co.za

This being my first blog ever, I just wanted to say Welcome to my website !! It’s been a tough journey to get here, not because the website took ages to develop (that in actual fact was done at record speed  J Thank you 6AM) No, I say a tough journey, because from 4 weeks old my youngest daughter, Jessica, developed a blocked nose which stuck around until we did her allergy tests at a year old !!!

From there my research began….first we tried Soy and she is severely intolerant to that so we then changed her onto Rice Milk !! Because Jessica has been eating solids since she was 5 months old (a blog for another day) she was eating just about everything her sisters were eating so when we discovered all her allergies, we had to very quickly remove all the allergens. Thankfully at that stage she was still too little to realise that she was no longer eating everything her big sisters were !!

This however has become more and more tricky as she has got bigger and so much more aware of her surroundings, so my research to find foods that look similar to what her sisters are eating, has intensified to the point that I am even baking….Daaaaa dat da daaaaaa……(noise from a scary movie…ha ha ha). As and when I find easy Recipes and ACTUALLY BAKE the allergy free recipes, I’ll put them on our Recipes page and if any of you fantastic bakers have any allergy free recipes that you regularly bake, please send them onto me with a picture to share with everyone.

Here are a few of the fun goodies I’ve found for Jess to eat :

  • Ole or Cardin Margarine (dairy, soy FREE) So that she can have toast like ABIARA (that is what she calls her sisters)
  • Honest Chocolate (dairy, soy, nut, Wheat FREE)
  • Organix Goodies Cocoa and Raisin Soft Oaty bars (dairy, soy, nut FREE)
  • Happy Baby Organic Puffs (dairy, soy, nut FREE)
  • Orgran Outback Animal biscuits (Gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, yeast, GMO, Soy, Nut FREE)

As and when I find new goodies you’ll be the first to know !!!

I am very excited about this site and have a whack of ideas that I’ll roll out as and when they are complete.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a mail and I’ll do my job…which is research !!!

Hope to see you all soon !!!!
