Hi, my 2 1/2 year old son is allergic to all those things. Does anyone have suggestions on anything I could do. Any food suggestions or any other suggestions on different things to give him to drink.

My middle child had the milk & corn allergy.  We also have a child allergic to most fruits - that is easy in comparison.  Be aware that corn is in EVERYTHING that you might find at the main stream grocery store... brown sugar, vanilla, baking powder, taco seasoning, peanut butter, bread, most rice/soy alternatives, chocolate, medication, and the list goes on and on.  It goes so far as fresh fruits because of the preservative sprays they coat them with before shipping.  It is also in ALL medications unless custom mixed by a very willing pharmacist.  I can give you more direction with that if you need it.  I have done a lot of research and was able to boil our menu down to the bare bones basics.  It requires a lot of extra work in the kitchen, but can be very fun as well!  My daughter loved the Rice Dream Enriched Rice Milk as well.  Most natural food stores will give you a discount for buying in case quantities.  Once you learn to avoid corn you might find the rest much easier as well.  Check out .com

Rice milk will be your best bet...the corn allergy is the hardest as it is in will get easier...once you find things that he can will learn what he can and can not daughter is allergic to corn, peanuts, and eggs. Dairy and Soy showed up on her list too but they were false positives so she can eat it.

If you google Food Allergy News they have a cookbook there with some great recipes labeled according to allergen - tons of cookies, cakes, main dishes, sides, and snacks for kids with allergies. Also, get rice milk - they have enriched rice milk with basically the same nutrients as regular milk - it's all fortified - my son drinks it, puts it on his cereal, and it works great for baking. Get sun butter instead of peanut butter. Find your local whole foods store and scope it out for good stuff for your son. They also have powdered egg replacer there, which has been a LIFE SAVER for our family. You can also get rice bread and a variety of other rice products at your local grocery store or whole foods market. As for the asthma, get him off of steroid based products as soon as he's able to chew a pill so his growth isn't stunted. My son was on Pulmocort and is very short for his age. The doc attributed this to his meds. He is now on Singulair which is GREAT for him. He's four.

Luckily, wheat allergy is pretty prominent, so there are lots of products out there for you.

Don't worry, it will all soon be second nature soon.
