My 18-month son is allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, chicken, peanuts, all lentils and beans and possibly soy.

I'm looking for any recipes or snack ideas you might have that he might enjoy. He's just started to become fussy about food which is worrisome since there's not all that he can eat in the first place so if anyone has any ideas for new tastes and textures, they will be mucho appreciated.

My children are not multifood allergic...just nuts and tree nuts. My youngest may have a milk allergy. Anyway, I don't know if you are a member of the Food Allergy Network, [url="http://www.foodallergy.org"]www.foodallergy.org[/url] (not sure if the link will work), but they always have allergy free recipes in their newlsetter. Most are, but not all, milk-free, egg-free, wheat-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and nut-free. A few have wheat or soy but I have not seen one in this months issue that has milk, egg, peanut or nuts. Hope it helps.

You might want to check out the Parents Of Food Allergic Kids list (POFAK) at egroups.com. Many of the kids whose parents are on that list have multiple food allergies, and they have great resources for recipes etc.

My son has celiac disease and peanut/legume allergies. People with celiac disease may not have gluten which is found predominately in wheat, rye, barley, and oats, but also in other grains. People with celiac disease often develop additional intolerances or allergies due to the destruction of their small intestine. I recommend that you visit the celiac on-line support group at [url="http://www.delphi.com."]www.delphi.com.[/url] There you will find many people that can give you assistance to meeting your child's dietary needs, a listing of foods that do not contain even trace amounts of wheat, rye, barley, and oats (we then have to cross out the ones we can't have), recipes galore, and many other parents of toddlers with multiple food allergies and intolerances. Best of luck.

Here's another great site for you.
They have a great recipe section, including cake, and even a mayonnaise.
Good Luck!

Try misc.KidsAllergyandAsthmaReciepes I found this by doing search egg allergy. You have to pick through reciepes have lot no wheat/ oat but contain egg etc or the eggs replacer contains potato But hopefully you can find some out of the many listed. I was able to find about 7 for my mult food allergic child.
Take Care and hope she'll start out growing some of these. By the way, my son's CAP RAST high on wheat, oats, barley and we went through time without those early in his life. However, son's hopkins doctor(food allergy specialist) didn't re-restrict these rather stated test was false positive re son's high allergies to grasses(several these >100). He did re-restrict egg though son had passed food challenge years ago at local allergergist office (Cap rast then of 31) He has outgrown white potato, chicken, soy, and orange allergies.

Try these books: Allergy Cooking with Ease, by Nicolette Dumke (she also has an allergy baking book) and The Allergy Self-Help Cookbook, by Marjorie Jones. There's also one called Feeding Your Allergic Child, can't remember the author, from which I got a couple of great recipes.
