Q.

Chrones Diet

My two year old son was diagnosed with allergy to soy and sodium benzoate. He was also diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis on Wednesday, and was advised to follow a Crohnes diet, which in essence avoids rich / spicy / sugary foods, as well as avoiding insoluble fibre and minimizing lactose.
I have no idea what to feed him …  I am at wits end ! do you have any suggestions or recommendations for a crohnes diet (obviously now also avoiding soya and E211) !

I simply cannot understand why you were not refered to a dietician for advice.Your son needs to be on a very special diet and this should only be given under the supervison of a experienced dietician. Please let me know in which city you live and I will recommend someone.
