Eczema Diet Plan: My 3 Day Kid-Friendly Eczema Meal Plan

Print

Summary: Aleshia shares a meal plan she used on her son, Jonny, that helped heal his severe eczema. If you’re looking for ideas to use of your kids, read through Aleshia’s story and her healing eczema meal plan!  This eczema meal plan can also help adults heal their eczema.

I used to be that Mum who was stopped in the street by strangers every time we went out. They would notice his skin condition, then gasp and say, “Oh my goodness, what is wrong with your baby!?” I used to be that Mum who was at the GP’s office every week loading up on steroid creams. That Mum who would wake up at 2am every single morning to bathe my son and wet wrap him to help him sleep.

Now, I am that Mum who sometimes even forgets her son has allergies/eczema. We have developed a gut and skin health-focused diet and a specific eczema diet plan in order to complement strategies we have learned through doctors’ visits. Thanks to this major lifestyle overhaul and eczema diet plan, along with a few environmental changes (e.g. eliminating chemicals used in the house), my son is finally both happy and healthy!

My son’s eczema has dramatically improved since avoiding wheat, sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, nightshades, corn, yeast and mushrooms, as well as incorporating specific probiotics and supplements into his diet. Even with all these restrictions, there are so many great foods we can still eat!

Take a look at my eczema diet plan for managing my son’s allergies and eczema through food.

 

Day One

Breakfast

Winter Goodness Juice

Banana Buckwheat Pancake and Coconut Yogurt

 

Snack

Sweet Potato Chips

 

Lunch

Vegetable plate with hummus

 

Bottle 

Organic Coconut Milk or Organic Rice Milk with ½ teaspoon dietary supplement.

**Before his nap, Johnny has a bottle of either rice milk or coconut milk with a half teaspoon of a  dietary supplement. This is important as he is no longer breastfed, so I am concerned about his fat intake. He is not a fussy kid, and even though he doesn’t like the allergy-friendly formula, he still likes a bottle before naps and bedtime.

 

Snack 

Avocado slices, pumpkin seeds, left over chicken pieces from the day before

 

Dinner

Lamb steaks & Seasonal Vegetables

 

Dessert / Snack

Banana Nice Cream

After a bath, Johnny always has another night time snack. I like to make him a banana nice cream as I have read that potassium can help people with sleep.

 

Bottle 

Night time bottle is coconut milk or rice milk with probiotics.

 

 

Day Two

Breakfast

Winter Goodness Juice

Banana Buckwheat Pancake with DIY Coconut Yogurt

 

Snack

Leftover lamb steak and pumpkin seeds

 

Lunch 

Coconut Water (from yesterday’s coconut)

4-Ingredient Easy Chocolate Chia Seed Bars (I make these in a big batch– they last about a week in the fridge).

 

Bottle 

Same as Day 1, midday bottle

 

Snack

4-Ingredient Easy Chocolate Chia Seed Bars

 

Dinner

Fishy Friday

We do fishy Fridays! This means every Friday we have salmon. The essential fatty acids in salmon are great for Johnny’s eczema and brain development. This fishy Friday we did salmon, spinach and avocado on brown rice.

 

Snack

Banana Nice Cream

 

Bottle 

Same as above, night time bottle.

 

 

Day Three

Breakfast It’s Saturday! This means bacon.

Bacon Quiche Breakfast

 

Snack

4-Ingredient Easy Chocolate Chia Seed Bars

 

Lunch

Johnny and I are at my Mum’s house today. She makes “Healing Kitcheri” for him.

 

Bottle 

Same as above, midday bottle.

 

Snack

Roast chicken pieces (My Dad’s contribution to lunch)

 

Dinner

Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Mash with Pork & Veggies

 

Snack

Smoothie Bowl

 

Bottle

Night time bottle

 

Note: Generally we do drink a lot of bone broth, although I didn’t use it in the past three days! Bone broth is excellent to use in soups, casseroles, in the slow cooker or even just with sauteed vegetables.

A lot of what I bake and cook is done in large batches so that there are always leftovers, which last another two to three days and sometimes are used as the basis for new meals.

I also have a million Ziplock bags to throw food in when we go out– seed bars are excellent to take out and about for unexpected snack attacks.

Our whole family has made the switch to clean eating since my son’s diagnosis as it has helped immensely with controlling his previously severe eczema.

An eczema-friendly diet plan for adults can help them cope with the inflammatory skin condition that can cause dry skin patches or even blisters and oozing sores. Eczema can be hereditary or caused by environmental or food allergies, which include cow’s milk, eggs, soy products, gluten, nuts, fish and shellfish. And while eliminating all of these from your diet may seem like a Herculean task, if the end result is smooth, painless skin, it may be worth it to try an eczema diet plan for adults. Adults who eliminate these triggers from their meals and incorporate anti-inflammatory foods, such as fish oil, quercetin or probiotics, into their eczema diet plan can benefit!

My husband and I have also benefited from this lifestyle change too in that we have both lost a lot of weight; our skin is clear; we have more energy than ever, and my own asthma seems to be nonexistent!

    Hi, thanks for the blog. It’s teally helpful. My question is the same as Judys. Some recipes contain food you say your son avoids. What do you use instead? Also, what vitamin supplements do you use? I’d be really keen to know where you buy them. Many thanks!

    Hi. I have checked out all your recipes and as you have mentioned your son is allergic to eggs as well but some recipes on here have eggs. Do you substitute and if you do, what do you use? I use egg replacer but it’s nowhere near to egg’s consistency and it just ruins a recipe. By the way, thanks so much for this blog. I will make the allergen free ones for my son.
