It’s pretty amazing after avoiding a food for years for fear of getting sick, or even dying, to be able to eat that food. I remember at Avery’s first allergist appointment at 12 months old, when we first realized how severe his allergies were, the allergist said that most kids outgrow milk allergies and Avery “won’t be going to kindergarten” with that one.

Fast forward to kindergarten and Avery was still very much allergic. At age 9, about a year ago in 3rd grade, Avery’s tests finally showed a chance the milk could be outgrown and we had a baked milk challenge in the allergist’s clinic and has been eating baked milk each day since then. It opened up a few new foods, like goldfish crackers and Cheez-its. But it wasn’t really life changing…

Fast forward a year, and life has changed. Now the list of allergies we are dealing with has dwindled to egg, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and melons. It’s not likely that he will outgrow any of the other ones, but we are so grateful to have added dairy back to his diet.

Favorite foods now include: string cheese, yogurt and brie. Brie is Avery’s favorite of all the cheeses! Oh and pizza. Pizza is even better when you can eat the same pizza as your friends at parties and the Domino’s delivery at school!

This post, and all posts on this blog, are written from my experiences as a parent of a child with food allergies. I am not a medical expert and encourage you to consult with a doctor on your personal medical situation.
