We did a food challenge for sesame and there was no SPT prior to it, but they did put a little tahini on his skin before the first oral dose.

My ds has outgrown several tree nut based on his blood test. The dr wants to start food challenges for almonds on Monday. Does he need SPT before a food challenge? He has not had any nut SPT since he was younger. I am very nervous about the whole process. Of course, my ds is super excited. Any experience?

Traveling & Restaurants / Spring Break trip ideas - multiple food allergies
« Last post by MaryM on September 21, 2018, 07:38:48 AM »
DH and I are thinking about a vacation during the kids spring break next April.  I would LOVE a beach vacation where I do not have to cook every meal.  I have heard good things about The Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas but I am nervous about flying and not being able to bring our staples with us.  3 of us have food allergies - I am PA/TN, DS is egg and DD is peanut, tree nut, dairy, egg and watermelon.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I was also thinking about a Disney cruise but I am not sure how I feel about being on a ship in the middle of the ocean.  My kids have never flown and they want to. I would need some Xanax bc I hate to fly but I am not ruling it out.  We usually drive to Disney but do not want to take DS out of HS for a trip when it isn't too hot or insanely crowded.

I was zipping through the grocery store and a new product caught my eye.  Most of the time, it goes right back down on the shelf, but this time it went in my basket.

Here's the info: A first of its kind cookie dough: gluten free, vegan, non GMO, plant based, dairy free, nut free, 100% whole grain, and kosher pareve.

We have not tried them yet, but I bought the chocolate chip ones to try this weekend.

I know Mac has posted about these before but I can't find the thread (so if you want to merge threads, it's ok by me).  BJ's had a coupon in their booklet for them and it's amazing that my BJ's actually had them in stock.

A perk to food allergies: most non-allergen food recalls are often processed foods we would never be able to eat in the first place.
