Recipes – What to Feed Your Allergic Kid

Maybe you are new to allergy cooking.  Maybe you have been at it a while and just feel uninspired, like we all do sometimes. I hope this recipe index will help you make it over the “I can’t feed them anything!” hump. We have all been there. Feeding kids is hard anyway, and made even harder when you have food allergies to contend with. In part, I made this index to remind myself of all the things that my kids CAN eat. Everything here is gluten, dairy, and peanut free. Most are egg free and tree nut free as well.


411 Granola

Avocado Smoothie From Family Fun. Use your preferred dairy free milk in this one.

Almost Eggless Tropical French Toast

Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Buckwheat Oatmeal Blender Waffles

Main Dishes

Gloriously Quick Cassoulet

Crispy Coconut Chicken from Parents Magazine. This calls for multigrain crackers that you then smash up to make breadcrumbs. You could use gluten free crackers, but why bother? I used Glutino brand bread crumbs. That way the work is already done.  Breadcrumbs were the only substitution necessary to make this gluten, dairy and egg free.

Rainbow Rotini from Parents Magazine.

Rachel Ray’s Pumpkin and Sausage Pasta. I substitute  gluten free pasta for the regular penne, and soymilk for the heavy cream.

Crockpot Chicken Teriaki from Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen.

Fajita Chicken and Pasta

Three Bean Hominy Chili


Slow Cooker Thai Chicken

Vegetarian Coconut Curry

Hamburger Goulash

Red Beans and Rice

Colorado Potato Lasagne

Mom’s Five Minute Marinara

Crockpot Black Beans

Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing

Creamy Chicken Salad

Cowboy Beans

Grilled Pork Ribs

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers from Peace, Love and Low Carb. We skipped the cheese on these to make them dairy free. For the kids, I cut the peppers up and cooked them along with the filling – stuffed peppers can be tricky to manuever for the little ones.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Navy Bean Squash Soup from Taste of Home. The recipe calls for cubed butternut squash, but it also works with cooked pureed butternut squash, which is what I used. I did not try it with canned squash.

Asian Ground Beef Stir Fry

Pizza Popover Casserole

Snacks &  Goodies

Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Sun Dried Tomato Dip
