My husband and I loved dining out, I became more of a foodie when I got married. Then our son Ash came along, soon after he was born, he was diagnosed with multiple food allergies
Although I didn’t realise at the time, Isabelle had classic allergy symptoms as a baby, and these got progressively worse until she was diagnosed with various food allergies at 6 months old.
From the time I have known Jay she is nothing less than strong but kind, loving and fun but things were not always smooth...
In fact, I would say it is thanks to Ash that I learned to braise a leg of lamb, now one of our favourite family meals, so thank you Ash...
My 11-year-old son is anaphylactic. He is highly allergic to all tree nuts, peanuts and salmon...
Luckily, Ash is a much more adventurous eater than many children I know, so the menu can still be fun and interesting...
