Toddler Favorites for an allergic diet

As if it’s not hard enough getting toddlers to eat, try having to avoid a few allergens as well! šŸ™‚ Sam is a good eater, but boy, it is a challenge to make sure he gets enough Vitamin D, calcium, protein and fat in his diet. Sam is not allergic to wheat, so he eats a good amount of that. Here are some staples in his diet.

  • Quick cooking oats made with coconut milk
  • Jones Dairy Farm sausage
  • homemade hummus with lots of olive oil, with pretzels or corn chips
  • plain potato chips
  • olive oil – in everything
  • Smart Balance Vegan Blend Butter – ON everything
  • Hormel Natural Choice Ham
  • Nature’s Own Wheat Bread
  • Van’s Frozen Waffles, topped with lots of butter and pure maple syrup
  • Trader Joe’s Snickerdoodles
  • So Delicious Purely Decadent Coconut Ice Cream
  • Rice and CoconutĀ Milk
  • Sunbutter – on bread, pancakes, crackers, bananas
  • Coleman’s Organic Chicken Nuggets
  • Homemade Sweet Potato Fries and Regular Fries
  • Leftover Lunch suggestion: When I serve Sam leftovers, likeĀ a soup or stew or pasta or something, I always add a dash more of olive oil. Sometimes if it’s a soup he didn’t love the first time, I crush up ritz crackers. Not the healthiest, but adds fat and flavor, which he can’t get from dairy toppings.
  • avocado – Sam is not a big fan of plain avocado, so I have to mix it in things. If I put it in soup or on a sandwich, he doesn’t notice.
