Feeding a Sick Kid with Dairy & Egg Allergies


So SG has had a virus since Wednesday afternoon. This morning (Friday) she seems past the hump: no fever today, eating and drinking more, and so far no icky diapers. I took her to the doctor this morning, even though I figured he would say it’s a virus. It is. But everything he suggested for bland foods, SG can’t have due to her food allergies. Except for plain white rice. Which leads to this post… Food allergy moms & dads- what do you feed your children when they are sick? Scrambled eggs- can’t have because she’s allergic. Toast- not unless I make some from scratch (flooring being installed all day- kitchen is a mess).

We are testing out orange Gatorade as I type. The orange regular kind seems safe so far. And Ritz crackers. So, parents, help a mama out! If you have a dairy and/or egg allergic child, what types of food do you feed him/her when sick and for a bland diet? Thanks, friend!

  1. Veggies, veggies, veggies. When my kids are sick they get lots of veggies. Mashed squash, frozen peas, mashed sweet potatoes to name a few. I have a Nutribullet and make smoothies. When Lily last had a fever, she had a smoothie with spinach, kale, flaxseed oil, sunflower seeds, frozen cherries and a banana. As for orange Gatorade, there was a campaign not too long ago to encourage them to remove BVO from it. I believe they agreed to but not sure that they have. Here’s more info on it.. http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2013/01/28/gatorade-removes-controversial-ingredient-after-girls-online-petition/
