The only restaurant that my MFA daughter eats at is McDonalds and its only the fries. They have now changed the oil that it is cooked in. It now contains Soy oil. This makes me so mad. It is one of her only treats. My question is this her allergy to soy is mild and there shouldn't be much if any of the protein in the oil, would you still let her have any? One of the other reasons that I do keep her away from some of her milder allergens is due to the theory of repeat exposure can bump up the allergy, thus making it worse and obviously less of a chance of out growing it.

I just wanted to add that she was last tested for soy spt and it was a 2. I don't even know if she would have any reaction to eating any. The last time she had any was 3 years ago and it seemed she would not react to it only when she would continually have some then her skin would break out in eczema. When I did a food challenge with her 3 years ago she had no reaction. For months she would eat soy and some other legumes(carob) and she had alot of eczema. We stopped both and skin cleared up. So what would you do with your child? If she ate some occasionally without any reaction,would you let her continue? This is the only thing we can do food wise where she feels like everyone else. We can meet kids at McDonalds and they can play in the play center or just take some fries to the park just like other kids. I think it would really upset her. She has been so good about all of her allergies (DA,EA,PA,and most fruit) and doesn't seem bothered by all the things she can't have that others do.

I don't have any information on whether or not she would react - I don't know a thing about soy allergies, but I'm curious about how you found out. We went last week and I checked the allergen info and they said it was the most recent information and it was dated last fall I believe. I always worry that they've changed the info and don't have the most up-to-date available!!
