My son is allergic to cows milk, and we recently learned he is also allergic to Corn! Which is in everything, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup. It is a filler that is not all that healthy either. Telling a 2 1/2 yr old you can no longer have Kix, Life or Fruit Loops has not been fun.
The cereals he can have are Cascadian Farms and Kashi, but they cost a lot. But compared to the diapers and carpet cleanings we were paying for before we learned of his corn allergy, I will take it. I am very thankful for Colorado Springs, and the stores that carry healthy foods.
I was just informed by the school that when he starts pre-school, I will have to provide his drinks and meals-snacks.
To have people who understand we can’t just say hey lets go have a treat and have pizza, would be great.
