20150820_093719We are a family of four (Allergy Big, Allergy Little, and Allergy Mum and Dad), who live with multiple allergies.  Our unluckiest family member has 13 known allergies!  We still enjoy food though.  This website is our attempt to share our food discoveries and new recipes with other people.  We tend to concentrate on reviewing more obscure products, because most supermarket Free From products just aren’t suitable for our family.

  1. Hi, I’m kinda new to the whole family full of allergies, I have four littles, and the 9 month old has just received her blood work back. She is allergic to milk, egg whites, soy, peanuts, wheat, rye, barley, oats, potatoes, oranges, bananas, chocolate, yeast, among a great many other things <- these are the class 3 and up. So I was wondering How do you do it?!


    1. Hi Janel,
      I am so sorry that I didn’t reply to your comment sooner. The blog was closed for just over a year while life got rudely in the way. I hope that you are feeling a bit more positive about the whole allergy situation now. You probably have worked out the answer yourself, but I would say I treat it like a job. I am a professional allergen avoider! Your knowledge increases over time. It is always time consuming because you need to continuously check ingredients lists and use multiple shops to buy food, but it does get easier. It also gets easier because children can start taking responsibility for their allergies themselves as they get older. If you are at the stage of having to watch her like a hawk at toddler groups or soft play centres because you don’t know whether she will pick up some food dropped by another child, then know that others understand how you feel and it will get easier. Hang in there. It would be great if you could pop by the blog and let us know how you are getting on, but I realise it has been a while. Sorry again for not replying sooner.


      1. Thanks for replying 🙂 Things have gotten easier, your blog was a great jumping in point for me 🙂 She appears to be getting more tolerant of some of the minor allergies and I’ve managed to drop our shopping time to under an hour (LOL) as I try to mainly stick to the basics of what she can eat and then check out new things. It also helps that I’m still primarily breastfeeding 🙂 Today we tried a Pea Milk alternative from Bolthouse Farms that just showed up in our neighborhood Publix and so far so good although she was not a fan of the taste. Again, I really appreciate your reply and thank you so very much for putting together your website! You rock!!! – JJ
