Dear Cas
Because your 3-year-old daughter has 3 major allergies (wheat, dairy and egg white), I would urge you to consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will have to assist you with a diet for the lassie that avoids very many foods (wheat, dairy and eggs are used in practically all processed foods in some form or other), but still provides her with the nutrients she needs for normal growth and development. The dietitian will also have to guide you through the initial phase of getting used to preparing such a restricted diet for your child which is not easy. To read more about these food allergies click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Allergy & intolerance'. You can also contact the Allergy Association by visiting their Website at: to find out more about allergies. For recipes you can try the 'South African Cookbook for Food Allergies & Food Intolerance" by Hilda Lategan. Contact Hilda Lategan, who is also a dietitian, on (012) 546-6410) or send her an e-mail at: .
