I have a 5 year old who has very bad food allergies. Here is a list of things that my son can not have or things that is made with it: wheat, eggs, dairy, sea food, peanuts, tree-nuts. With me packing his lunch every day for school I’m fresh out of ideas. I was wondering if you had any new cool ideas/recipes so I can stop boring my 5 year old.

Mom of Kid with Allergies
Dear MOKW:We have some ideas for your son’s lunch recommended from a mom whose son has allergies too. Corn flour tortillas are readily available and a great platform for wraps or quesadillas. Rice is also a great solution and you can buy bread and pasta made from rice rather than wheat. You can substitute for eggs when baking by using 1 tablespoon flax meal mixed with 3 tablespoons water for each egg. Here are some suggestions for your son’s lunchbox: Vegetable soup made with barley corn flour quesadillas corn flour pizzadillas corn or rice mac n cheese made with goat cheese brown or black bean burritos
pureed bean or squash soupRoasted vegetables with rice stir fry
fruit leather strips
frozen blueberries or strawberries (thawed by lunch)
sunflower butter spread over gluten-free bread
craisins and raisins mixed with dry cereal
ham roll ups (guacarollies)
homemade crispy rice bars Good luck!
