Hello everyone!
My name is Katie, and I'm a 29yo mother to a gorgeous little boy who will be 2 in March.
We recently discovered that he is sensitive to corn, soy, and tomatoes.
I came across this forum while searching for other moms in my situation. I hope to pick up quite a few tips on what to avoid, and how to make this transition to allergen-free food a bit less stressful.
I look forward to "chatting" with you guys!

Welcome and glad you found us.

Soy and corn are both tricky ones since they're in so many foods (as I'm sure you're discovering).

Aside from chatting here, there are also some good articles on soy and fruit (including tomato) allergies in AL's "Food Allergy" section here: http://allergicliving.com/index.php/cat ... allergy-2/

Hi Katie... I have been living with a corn allergy for my entire life. Let me know if you need some help with finding safe foods. Also, there is a lot of information posted under "Corn Allergies".

Thanks for the welcome, guys!
I've been super busy in the last few days with work responsibilities, a major snowstorm that stranded us in town, a sick toddler (just a bad cold, but still horrible for him!), and just the daily "grind" of life, so I haven't had a chance to come back here to check it out more fully.
I hope to do that in the next couple of days, and then I'm sure I'll have tonnes more questions!
