What's your go-to product or brand that gets around your child's food allergy?

For peanut allergy, we rely on I.M. Healthy Soy Nut butter and SunButter spreads. My peanut allergic daughter likes the Soy Nut butter and my non-allergic son likes the SunButter. So, we stock both.

We also bake a lot with applesauce to replace egg in breads and muffins.

What's a great allergy-safe food to bring to a party?

Oreos are a great standby. They are free of many major allergens. Although there is a picture of milk on the box, there is no milk in the original version of the cookie. They are free of nuts, egg, and milk.

Yogurt parfaits! I usually have yogurt on hand, and any flavor will do. You just put yogurt into a cup 1/2 way. Then add some dried fruit or fresh fruit, some of our favorites are berries or dried cranberries. Top with more yogurt. To finish it off, add a crunchy topping. We have nut allergies in our house. So, we add grapenuts or nut-free granola cereal.
