  1. Hi,
    First, thank you so much for creating this website . It is a great idea . I have to sons. One is 2 years old and have no allergies at all. My eldest is four and he is allergic to eggs, all kind of fish, seafood, sesame, mustard, turmeric, paprika, peanuts and all kind of nuts and may be more . He just started to have chemical allergies (cleaning product and swimming pool).
    He is doing well since he is at school and i prepare his lunch box. He used to have a lot of problem at nursery as they were not reading food label properly !! And they were cookng fish in the nursery kitchen next to his classroom . Simply nightmare . So he was not eating properly and was very skinny . But he put on weight since starting school and it is a relieve for us.

    I can’t see that your daughters used to be allergic to egg but not anymore ? Could you tell me after how many years?

    I have some “free from” recipe which i will post on your website .

    Many thanks for this websiteagain.

    • Hi Agnes and welcome to Allergy Zone!

      We discovered our daughter had grown out of her egg allergy when she was 9 years old. She was retested for her allergies and we found that thankfully she had grown out of her egg allergy but we also discovered that unfortunately she had other allergies than we hadn’t known about. You can see some photos of what her reactions were like when she had eaten egg here. Thank God, she never went into anaphylactic shock after eating egg but after she had eaten it she was very ill for a couple of days and unwell for a week afterwards.

      As she has got older her allergies seem to be leaning towards environmental allergies which I must admit I do worry about a lot. I could always control what she ate but there’s not a lot I can do about controlling the environment around her without restricting her life completely. All the girls in her class are going to another classmates house for a birthday sleepover tomorrow night but she can’t go because her friend has wool carpets. I feel so sorry for her as she is upset that she is going to be the only who isn’t going but if she goes she will be really ill as it affects her breathing etc and she recently had a really bad reaction to wool carpets. I have promised her a trip to the cinema to try and make it up to her!

      I am pleased that your son is thriving now that he has gone to school. At least you have some peace of mind knowing that he is going to be able to eat safely as you have prepared his food. On the positive side he may outgrow his egg allergy as my daughter did.

      Thanks so much for the kind offer of the recipes, that would be fantastic. Could you please email them to

      I would just like to say a huge “Thank You” for taking the time to comment and post on the site – you are the first of what I hope will be many!

      Kind Regards,
