Great news is that we are able to add parsnips and turnips to Evan's list of safe foods, giving him a variety of 5 vegetables! We were hoping to add a meat. We know from past reactions and testing that he is allergic to chicken and beef... The Icelandic lamb is as grassed as you can get it, we are told, so we bought a few small pieces that were ridiculously priced. Evan started breaking out with a terrible itchy rash within hours after the second time he ate some, but so many other reasons can cause reactions, that we decided we would push through with the lamb trial. Then he started having trouble breathing and swelling up around his eyes, making it clear that we had to stop the meat. He loved it at first, then started refusing it, probably realizing that it was causing him stomach pain and other symptoms. So, still no meat... Once he heals from this reaction, we plan on trialing a wild fish.
