We have a 3 yr old, we think he is allergic to red 40. How do we deal with all of the foods out there with red 40 hidden in them?

There aren't any foods with it hidden. If you're buying processed stuff it's a given that you'll be consuming unhealthy ingredients.



Buy vegetables, fruits and meat. Easy to avoid the dyes.



We react to it as well. Don't buy processed. Processed food= anything wrapped in paper or plastic, anything that comes in a bottle. Anything with more than one ingredient.

we have a dairy prob and i have found most fast food places will have allergy information available, you just have to do your reasearch, and once you get to know safe prodcts for you you will have a core pantry to work with and like marina said if you make from scratch there is no where for it to hide, and when you buy a new product just read the packet, after a while you will be able to zero in on the right part of the lable without thinking it will be second nature
