My son Johnny has been diagnosed with severe spectrum egg and dairy allergies, in addition to his serious 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. through complimenting all we have learned through the doctors, We have developed a gut health-focused diet in order to complement strategies we have learned through years of doctors’ visits. Thanks to this major lifestyle overhaul, along with a few environmental changes (e.g. eliminating chemicals used in the house), my son is finally both happy and healthy! Take a look at my diet guide for managing my son’s allergies and eczema through food.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Filled with two times more protein than most grains and rich in omega 3 and omega 6, fiber, potassium and antioxidants, what’s not to like about chia seeds? Have some chia seeds leftover? Sprinkle some on your yogurt or cereal tomorrow morning! I'm also always excited to see what inventive ways people use bananas! Yes, bananas great in bread, but since they’re high in pectin, bananas aid in digestion and as a prebiotic, can aid in stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria. If your bananas do start going brown before you’re ready to use, peel them and stick them in the freezer for a later date!
