Eczema Diet Plan: My 3 Day Kid-Friendly Diet Plan For Healing Eczema

Print

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

 

green-goodness-juice-recipe-eczema-diet

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

 

4-ingredient-easy-chocolate-chia-seed-bars-recipe-honey-coconut-cocoa-gluten-free-diet

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.

1-ingredient-banana-nice-cream-eczema

Snack

Banana Nice Cream

Bottle 

Same as above, night time bottle.

 

 

Day Three

 

tomato-basil-quiche-with-bacon-and-spinach-recipe-ms-diet

 

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

3 ingredient sweet potato pudding (dairy free)

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, it’s Aleshia here, the author. I am unable to respond to comments individually so hopefully you’ll all find this comment here.
    Firstly thanks for the lovely comments, I am so glad this can be helpful to some people on the eczema journey.
    In response to Heather Jacobs, I understand the confusion. There are two types of kefir. We use water kefir made from kefir grains and water, fermented using sugar and fruit, not cows milk kefir.
    Thanks Ruby, I’m sure some people do stay away from pork and hopefully your comment will help others put together their jigsaw puzzle of things that are helpful and unhelpful to them as individuals. Wow no KFC, yeah no we haven’t had that in over six years and my children have never tried it, I’m not surprised it causes a skin reaction – who even knows what’s in it lol. Great point about additives such as monosodium glutamate, eek!
    Judy, I know it’s so strange that there is a link to bacon quiche on this article!! It certainly isn’t a food we have at home, it isn’t my recipe and not something |’d ever recommend for an eczema diet. It is an error. For an egg replacer it depends on the recipe, for cooking chia seed/flaxseed in water work well, for baking mashed banana and olive oil works well.
    Hope this is helpful.

    I’m so confused with everything I’ve read that suggests kefir yet says stay away from cows milk. Kefir is made with cows milk so….help me understand this please.

    Pork is not good for eczema and psoriasis. Everyone I know says it makes it to spread on body. I have eczema…and medications always say avoid pork. I couldn’t eat Kentucky fried chicken. one of the secret ingredients make my body get inflamed and i go through the cycle….
    I’m surprise the sweet potato, pork and vegetable meal has not cause some to notice yet. Maybe, with all the good stuff in the body it is strong enough to cancel out some of the bad stuff!
    Red dye 40 and msg will let me know immediately. Also, no ketchups.
    While a person is young they have fight but older is a different story..12 years & up

    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.
