Boca Raton, Synthia. My son is 3 1/2, PA and avoiding all nuts... If you are close and have any tips, I am new to all this and any input is certainly helpful...

Hi Luisa,
I'm in the northeast but visit Boca Raton yearly to see my MIL. We don't eat out very often when we're there, but have had excellent experiences at Padrinos (one of our faves; I'm already salivating thinking of our upcoming trip!). I believe Chamberlain's has also been quite accomodating, as well as a Spanish restaurant (whose name I can't remember) down near Federal Hwy. I'll have to ask my MIL the name. Oh yeah, it's Meson Madrid.
If you have any other suggestions for us, I'm all ears.
Amy
(Edited to add name of the restaurant)

Thanks so much to both of you...
I am still trying to figure out what brands to feed my son, for instance cheeses and breads he likes, contacting manufacturers and using this site a lot (trying to post in the right boards).
Thank God his preschool has the nut free policy, that helps. But I am already wondering what to do when picking schools for first grade...
In terms of restaurants I am scared and lost. I know I will eventually feel better about it, get my experience in talking to staff and sort out what places are best in accomodating our needs. I just need time. Starting with the pantry, then restaurants, trips, etc. I am starting a list of yes/no foods and places - so my husband and I can get on the same page always.
That's why any local info really help. Thanks for the restaurants tips, Amy. It's on the list. As I go, I will let everybody know any relevant info I can get. That's why this site is so helpful, nothing better than other parents exchanging experiences, right?

Hi! I live in Plantation. My son is 2 and starting preschool in June. If you need someone to vent to, I'm here. We are about 20 minutes from Boca.
Welcome to the Sunshine State!

I am pa/tna. I use Cabot cheeses and Bakers Inn bread; also Wonder bread. Quaker oatmeal in the round can (Quick one Minute) is safe. If you learn of any other cereal please let me know. Good luck!
