Milkfree, Eggfree, Nutfree snacks

My son is 3 years old and is fatally allergic to all dairy, eggs, and all kinds of nuts (peanuts and tree nuts). I was wondering what kind of snacks you all give your kids who are allergic to the same things. Bless his heart, I think he is getting tired of Honeycombs, graham crackers, or cheerios for snacks while going on road trips. I fix all of his meals and will not allow him to eat in any restaurant because he is so sensitive to the allergens, I am worried about cross contamination. I usually fix his food and take it with us to the restaurant. If anyone is looking for food ideas for a milk, egg, and nut allergic child, just ask!
He likes meatloaf, talapia fish, BBQ chicken, pasta, sloppy joe rotini, no cheese tacos, MEN free pizza (made at home), Boar's Head low sodiume ham. (These were off the top of my head. If you want any recipes, just let me know.

Peeps
Red Vines
marshmallows
Swedish Fish

Pickles

We've found some safe bagel chips but that might be locally available.

for variation, dip chips/veggies in hummus (but check the brand out ahead of time, sometime the tahini is contaminated with nuts/peanuts - you can also make it pretty easy)

pizza is safe pepperoni (we use Hormel), safe spaghetti sauce on safe tortillas

we also substitute the cheese layer of lasagna with tofu, olive oil, salt, garlic powder and Italian season whirled smooth.

We sometimes make a snack mix with Chex, soup crackers, pretzels, shoestring potatoes, Cheerios and soy or rice "nuts" (if I happen to have any - I don't buy them too often)

teddy grahams and oreos are both kosher DAIRY. i do not give these to my dairy allergic daughter. if your child's dairy allergy is serious, i would think twice about these two products. just my opinion...

also, if you search through the snack, recipes forum, i think you will find some great ideas and recipes for treats (many of those with nut allergies are dealing with dairy and egg as well).

Not all of the Boar's Head deli meats are safe. I know that the Boar's Head Low Sodium Ham (it is 42% lower sodium) is safe and I think one of the Boar's Head Oven Roasted Turkey is suppose to be safe. I ask my local deli to thoroughly clean the machine, wash their hands and change gloves before they slice my son's ham. They have always been real cooperative with it. Also, I forgot to mention earlier that my son uses Willow Creek Soybean Margarine (Shedd's brand) in place of milk based margarine. Let me know which recipes you would like and I will post them.

Do you mean they share a line? I called on the teddy grahams and was not told that. What were you told? My DD does have a serious dairy allergy but has never seemed to have a problem with these. Now I wonder if I should stop giving them to her. Thanks.

I would love to get this lasagna recipe from you. I have a lasagna recipe but I don't know how to substitute the cheese. Measurements would be great!

Mind you, this does NOT taste like cheese - it's more for the texture and appearance. I used to measure this all out but realized I could mess with it pretty easily even just mashing/whipping it with a wire whisk so that I don't have to mess up my food processor (which a pain to clean when I'm lazy!) To the tofu layer, I add dried Italian Seasoning or just dried parsley 'cause I like the way it looks in the plain white layer. . .

rom "Tofu Quick and Easy" by
Louise Hagler

Preheat oven to 350
Cook in boiling water to al dente, then drain and rinse:
1/2 lb lasagne noodles (I use nine)

have ready:
4 cups of your favorite tomato/spaghetti sauce(we usually use Prego with mushrooms and add browned Italian sausage - we also like more sauce than called for)

Saute together:
2 Tbsp oil
1 medium onion chopped fine

Blend in food processor or blender until smooth and creamy:
1 lb tofu mashed or crumbled
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Mix in the sauted onions and:
1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped fine (I use 1 TBSP or so of dried parsley flakes or dried Italian seasoning)

Spray bottom of 9X13 pan with non-stick spray. Lay three noodles on bottom, spread 1/3 tofu mixture on the noodles and cover with 1/3 of the tomato sauce. Repeat for total of three layers. Sprinkle more parsley on top if desired.
Bake 30 minutes until heated through.

Thanks so much for the recipe. I am going to try it this weekend. My son is so desperate for something new to eat. It is really great to find other moms in the same situation who are willing to share recipes. It makes our difficult life just a little easier.

Our cookies and coffee cake are milk free, egg free, and nut free. We have a dedicated facility, the treats are kosher pareve (i.e., NOT milk), and we test for peanuts, almonds, eggs, and milk. The only soy in our products is soy lecithin. The grains (so far) are barley and oats. As snacks, our products are wholesome: There is no cholesteral or trans fat, and they are whole grain and certified organic. If you want to bake your own treats, we offer "The Gak's Snacks Allergy Cookbook: Baked Treats for All Occasions" as well as allergen tested baking ingredients. None of the recipes in the cookbook contain any of the major food allergens (except spelt flour, in the wheat family, in some of the recipes). You can learn more and order at our web site, [url="http://www.gakssnacks.com."]www.gakssnacks.com.[/url] We ship all over the US.

By what I've heard, from someone who has talked to Nabisco directly, is that Oreos are marked Kosher dairy because the lines they made on were once used to process items containing dairy. The ones made by Kraft/Nabisco rather than a contracted bakery do NOT contain dairy ingredients.

Apparently it's a difficult process to get a line recertified as kosher.

Here's the thread on the subject at KWFA/pofak, so I don't have to cut and paste the e-mail that someone got from nabisco

For me and my milk allergic kiddo, I'm comfortable with it. She has never had a problem with Oreos. It's a non issue for Jason because he hasn't been allergic to milk in years.

yes, they are kosher dairy because they are on shared lines and nabisco does not clean the lines according to kosher standards to make them kosher parve.

in my case, i do not give my daughter ANYTHING made on a shared dairy line. i won't risk the cross-contamination.
