Did you know that fructose is in everything?!?! Well, almost everything. We finally got up to see a specialist for my littlest's tummy problems. She suggested we try a fructose-free diet for a month and see if that helped.
It did. Within 4 days she was a completely different child. No tummy-aches, no constipation. For awhile I was completely overwhelmed by the lifestyle change I was confronted with. Now, we're slowing building up the food choices available.
She can have corn tortillas, refried beans and cheese, so she's completely happy.
I have complied a list of foods that are okay, as well as those that aren't. Basically you start with a gluten-free diet and eliminate most sweeteners, fruits and veggies.
Long story short - my family has asked for a list of foods and recipes that Tessa can enjoy. Since I already have this blog, I figured this would be the best place to post such things.
In my research I haven't been able to find many recipes. I will post mine, as I create them, to help others in search of kid-friendly fructose free foods.
Needless to say, sewing has taken a backseat for the time being. Such is life.
Tessa-safe foods are listed here.
When I create them, recipes will be here.
