I get so many questions on what I send to school for my child with wheat and dairy allergies. While I have come up with some great ideas, I really could use some more for both myself and my website: iLunchBox.com. Come visit the site, explore and contribute, I welcome your input.

Beth, I agree about too much soy. People have no clue how much they consume but it is in EVERTHING! People also do not realize it is a natural estrogen and often used to treat menopause symptoms! I actually don't mind my DD is allergic to it!

I would love the recipe for sunbutter cookies for the website, would you share??? I would link back to your own blog or site if you have one.

PS: I am not a big fan of too much soy in anyone's diet, especially boys. I avoid it at all costs because it is an ingredient in so much we eat without even realizing it.

I second that the sunbutter is great for those who cannot do nuts or soy- my son is allergic to tree nuts and my daughter is too young to be introduced to any nuts (especially with allergies in the family) so we have been using sunbutter on everything! We prefer it to the soy butter- and I have made everthing from celery with sunbutter to sunbutter cookies and have added it to smoothies for a yummy protein addition. Good luck and I will definitely check out the site. :)

Our daughter who just turned 2 until recently also avoided wheat with her milk, soy and peanut allergy so we've used Enjoy Life, Brothers-All-Natural dried fruits, and applesauce for quick stuff on the go. I also make muffins and freeze them in sandwich baggies to grab quickly. We just challenged wheat and are doing good, but my past year was tough, she didn't like any breads, she is now eating homemade bread sandwiches and happy with it.

There is a brand called Enjoy Life Foods and they do not use any of the 8 most common food allergies. They are amazingly good and have absolutely no wheat or dairy. They have all different kinds of products from cookies to snack bars. My son loves them. They are on facebook too. I highly recommend them! Even to people without allergies! :)
