Looked through the old postings and could not find anything new on mayonnaise, can any one give me some ideas, Whole Foods has a warning on their brand, Helimans seems a mixed bag. Trying to make my son some sort of salad type dressing for him to dip veggies into as I thought it might help him eat them ( HAH!) He is PN/PineNut avoid T/N and 4 years old and is simply not buying that brocolli is dinosaur food, any help with the veggies would be great!!!

kraft makes mayo and nice creamy dressings you could use. how about sour cream with some fresh ingredients and let sit in fridge for flavors to combine. frito lay now makes yummy creamy dips.

I called Helmans/Best Foods and was told that the mayo was in a peanut free facility. Without a doubt. It was a clear answer - the number in my notes is 800 418 3275 - I spoke with a nice lady in NJ.
I have read here that some of the Helmans overseas is not safe....but in the US I am comfortable.

How about sour cream as a base. Or yogurt.

We use Kraft. Also, for ranch dips/dressings, we use the Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix packets to mix with mayo or sour cream. I don't know if they have that brand in your area. Also, if you have the Ready Pac Cool Cuts carrots and ranch dip (individual packets like for lunches), in your area, those are PN and TN free. They use Litehouse dressing for their packets and Litehouse is also pn and tn free.

McCormick spice company also makes several dip packages (spinach, vegetable, onion)- Last I called they said they don't make any products with nuts. I believe you just add sourcream to the package (can't remember for sure)

My DS loves "french dip" and eats ANY veggie if he can have it! My magic "french dip" is simply creamy french dressing [img][/img]!
Why do I have the feeling these tricks won't work in a year or too!!!

When I called Hidden Valley a few yrs ago, they refused to give me any information and told me that they just would recommend we don't use it. I buy the ranch dressing mix from Penzey's Spices.

I have been using Safeway's brand of Light-Mayo and when I had called them- it was safe. My daughter has been eating it fine.

We have used Hidden Valley Ranch Lite dressing for 3 years for my DS. Never a problem. He uses it almost daily on veggies, salads, and anything else he can think of.
I have never called, but we have used without a problem.
