My son is allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, and oats. As our son gets older, I'm finding it increasing more frustrating, annoying, and inconvenient to take our son out to eat. If were having a really busy night, we can't just swing through McDonald's and grab a bite to eat. I'm finding that I can't really find much that is completely safe, mainly b/c everyone fries everything in the same fryer and grills everything on the same grill. Right now, when we plan to go out to eat, I just make my son's meal ahead of time and then just feed him that when we get to the restaurant. This is fine now, it takes planning, but its fine. But I'm just wondering if this is going to get harder as he gets older.
Has anyone had any luck finding restaurants, both sit down and fast food, that are allergy friendly? What do you do for your child(ren) when your family goes out to eat? Any advice on how to make going out to eat more convenient?
