My son is begging for kid cuisine. It would be nice to be able to give it to him every once and a while. I did a search, but did not come up with anything new. Does anyone know if it is safe for PN/TN? Do you give it to your child? thanks.

I really don't know, but when Ryan was diagnosed we stopped buying them. Examining that ingredient list was like reading a novel in the food store. Just thought it was too long for my comfort zone, and they really don't taste that good anyway from my memory of buying them way back when.

We use these occasionally. I think there might be a desert in one of the varieties that has a walnut on the top. But DS has eaten pizza, chicken, burgers -- no prob for a couple of years now.

Ian's makes some kid cuisine - like dinners that are healthier and peanut/nut free and sesane free (altho I think there is sesame in the plant. These can be found in Whole Foods and Shaw's Market in Massachusetts.

We have, and at least the ones that I have purchased have a bold allergen statement at the end of the ingrediant list and from what I recall most have wheat, soy and milk. Also these are manufactured by Con Agra.

My son is PA and we are comfortable with this. At one time there was one with a brownie and the allergen statement said that it may contain walnuts, but I haven't seen this statement in quite a long time.

Yes, we use Kid's Cuisine quite often...it makes busy life a bit easier sometimes [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] a yr or so ago there was ONE meal that had a nut warning (don't remember now which, sorry) but it has since been removed. ( and I was GLAD to see the warning anyway, kwim?)

They are full of soy, eggs,milk, wheat warnings, so beware! In other words, they are NOT what would be called a healthy meal--however, they are convenient and DD likes them. It's not a frequent thing here but I do trust them when it's been a busy day....

They are made by Conagra, btw, and well labeled....

A comfort zone thing, I know...

Take care, Lisa

I have fed them to my kids twice in their lives. The time I did it lately, it did make me really nervous. I didn't let my PA DD eat the fruit snacks or the brownie (my kids traded meals partway through). The labeling looks alright, but do they really make all their own components?

We have had these several times with no problems so far. There is a bold statement at the end of the ingredient list.
