Hi I'm new here with a 13 month oldmy lo seems to have similar issues as most of these kiddos...we did rast testing and everything came back normal but I know her triggers are oat, rice, sweet potato, eggs,nuts dairy. She gets severe GI response from most foods....chronic diarrhea and lethargy. She's basically surviving on pumpkin, apple blueberry and pear purees at 13 months. Not able to make any table foods either due to allergies, sensitivities or lack of recipes with safe foods -I'm struggling. What table foods were you able to give your child/children??? Our nutritionalist said to try tapioca flour but I'm nervous. She just tried rice flour and it was HORRIBLE. thanks for any help.

We posted this query on our social media page (anonymously)- a mom had some insights to share but couldn't get logged in here and has asked us to share her response:
My son lived off similar foods at that age. We only had 5 safe foods at age 2. They were the baby food you mentioned: apple blueberry, pear, as well as quinoa, potato, and avocado. (He also failed all formula including Elecare- I breastfed for 3 years until finding Neocate Splash.)
Please note that all FPIES kiddos have different triggers- so try anything suggested with great caution. You just never know . . . what works for one sometimes doesn't work for others.
There is light at the end of the tunnel- my son is now 5 years old and FPIES free! : )
