(Milk and Soy intolerance)
I've looked at fast food websites, and we're basically left with nothing. Do you feel that way? People always get so annoyed with special requests. I've always said I think the prepairers are back there spitting in our food because we're so difficult!
Yesterday my son had a plain McDonalds hamburger. He did surprisingly well with it. I know the bread must have some sort of dairy in it, and of course soy, since people can't seem to cook without it these days. My son has a small rash on his face today, but no diahrea from the burger and fries. I GUESS this is a good sign?
The baked apple pie at McD's used to be OK, until the soy intolerance came to light.
Fishwitch with no cheese used to be OK, except for obviously cooked in soybean oil.
McD's said their fries do contain some milk and of course soy. mY son loves fries!
Other places I just don't go really. I pick apart chicken for him, but if it's fried in soybean/vegi oil, there is no doubt it has soy in.
What do you guys give your children? I brought along food for my son when we went out, and it just made him mad (1) and he didn't want to eat it; he wanted what everyone else had.
So far, that's about all we've been brave enough to try; McD's. It just seems to risky for my child. He's so skinny, and then giving him something that might cause diahrea and loss of more weight because he won't eat after his tummy is upset like that, it's just too scary. I don't trust the food prepairers.
What's your story??
When I was breastfeeding I asked for no milk products in my soup. THey served it to me, and I could see all sorts of little peices of hard cheese. I asked; Isn't this cheese?. The waitress said--oh, I thought you wanted to just stay away from dairy, I didn't know it was an allergiv reaction or anything. HELLO!!!! Grrrr, I was mad. I had a few bites before I realized it. No doubt they spit in my food with teh second bowl!
heck, even staying in is tough, because they always seem to sneak the words "soy' past me in the ingredients.
OH> IT's TOUGH!!!!
