(June 11, 2015: I am no longer blogging about food allergies because my son has thankfully outgrown them all. However, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about food allergies. I’m happy to try and help. Also, you can continue to following my Swiss cooking adventures at Cuisine Helvetica.)
My 3-year old son had has a milk allergy. After seven four successful food challenges since our move from the United States to Switzerland in 2012, he can now safely eat everything eggs, almonds, and most recently, baked milk. When we first arrived here, we were avoiding peanuts, tree nuts and sesame, but test results thankfully allowed us to gradually introduce these foods into his diet.
Dairy-Free Switzerland describes how we managed we’ve been managing my son’s food allergies while living and traveling in a country with four official languages—one of which we’re slowly acquiring (French). I hope the recipes, resources and more that I shared share can be useful for people living and traveling with food allergies in Switzerland and beyond.
