Due to some allergy issues, Simon’s diet will be going dairy-free for a while, starting tomorrow. If dairy turns out not to be a trigger, we can try eliminating something else. If this change makes a difference, we will stick with it. It is going to be a big challenge for this dairy-lovin’ family. If it helps him out though, it will be worth it. I am currently doing some research and making some menus of things he can eat. I figure, if I have the menus ready ahead of time, this change will feel a lot less drastic.
I will definitely share some of that experience with you all as it get underway. For now though, here are a few toddler meals I have photographed, pre-change.
One question I have gotten about Simon’s food, is whether or not I am eating the same thing. The answer is, that I almost always am eating the same thing, occasionally with variations (such as hot sauce on my omelet, but not on his). I simply take more care in how I present his food than I do with my own, and therefore, my food is not always photo-worthy. When I think of it though, I do try to take pictures of both, such as I did above with our granola.
Hopefully, I will remember to take pictures of his food this coming week, so I can share a dairy-free toddler food post with you soon. Wish us luck!!
