With a child allergic to dairy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish, we've worried over the years about protein and calcium sources. It's tough to get those things while avoiding so much. Last week, my child tried a sliver of almond.
No reaction, even though a blood test showed an allergy to almond.
The next day, half an almond.
Fast forward a week and a bunch of almonds later. Either my child was never allergic to almonds, or the allergy was very recently outgrown. Whatever the case, I'm glad to be able to add this nutrient-packed food to his diet.
Sesame seed, almonds, baked milk (powdered) and baked egg all successful over the past few months.
On to cheese this week.
We're making progress. Very exciting, quite stressful.
