I am not aware of a specific list of SA food products that will indicate which products contain gluten and/or dairy products and which do not. You will have to check on the labels of foods that you purchase and basically stick to plain home-made food (meat, fish, eggs, fruit, vegetables, maize meal, sorghum meal, gluten-free bread (available in Woolworths and health shops), maize grits, rice, and oils such as olive oil. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Allergy & Intolerance' to read more about milk and gluten allergy. You can also contact the Allergy Association by visiting their Website at: www.allallergy.net 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: firstname.lastname@example.org . The recipes should help you to make snacks for your grandson.
