Great allergy friendly recipe websites

  • The Recipe Resource – The Recipe Resource has been set up to support those catering for multiple food allergies, particularly in children. My youngest children suffer from EGID (Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disease) which amongst other things manifests as reflux and constipation caused by food allergies. Providing a broad spread of alternatives not full of sugars, fillers or preservatives can be quite a challenge! It’s easy to find baby foods with few ingredients, and supermarkets stock a variety of adult “free from” foods, but children are sadly often neglected. – See more at:

My favourite eczema blogs

Rebecca’s blog is about coming to terms with eczema and living life anyway. So what if you have eczema on your face and can’t wear make-up? So glad I found this one. Read it if you or your loved one struggles with depression because of their eczema. Let’s break the loop of self destruction.
  2. I have eczema blogspot is Jenny’s story and it’s both so sad and inspiring as she shares her struggle with eczema, photos of her skin and how she is coping with such bad eczema on her face. From someone who has eczema on their face I know what she is going through and love reading her blog. It’s good to know you are not alone.
  3. Eczema Blues is a resource for parents with eczema kids!

Often just as hard to live with if not life threatening.

  4. Free From for Kids has been set up by mum to two sons who have multiple food allergies and since they were diagnosed, have found it really hard to find nice tasting and attractive looking foods for them. It’s an online shop called Freefromforkids which sells foods that are free from many of the major allergens including wheat and gluten and we have a range of everyday foods, as well as foods for special occasions such as parties, Easter and Christmas. .
  5. The Allergic Kid shares her journey as the mother of an allergic child, recipes, tips and beautiful photographs of her inspirationally beautiful food creations. I’d never have thought they were allergen free.

Eating out with allergies

“Food Allergy Guide for Restaurants”


  1. Hi, thanks for a great list of links, have just spent ages going through them all. Would you consider adding me to your list under the -ahem- Great Allergy Blogs list?! for gluten free and/or vegan recipes.

    What is my strapline you say? Oh I dunno, something like:

    ‘Pig in the Kitchen – providing allergy-challenged bakers with cake recipes since 1997. You’re welcome.’

    🙂 Thank-you!
    Pig x

  2. And when I say ‘1997’ I of course mean ‘2007’. Numbers? Really not my thing…

    • Well Pig! Lovely to hear from you. (Can I call you Pig? it sounds wrong somehow). Check out the updated links list above. I checked it out and think it’s brilliant and inspriring me to experiment in the kitchen. Would be grateful if you could link back to me too! Do you have a links page? Love the sound of that pear pudding! Flat tummies are so last year by the way ;o)

  3. Well if you have a allergy of asthma ..Please try to visit this website and you can get some tips about it…

  4. I dont have celiac but thought that I did. So I started to eat simply fruits,veggies,walnuts and soups.If your not allergic to milk I imagine you could have a baked potato with homemade chili and sour cream. Salads with oil and vinegar type dressings.Also if theres no gluten in the cheese you could have a potato with brocolli and cheese.Also chicken,beans,steaks. Just no pasta, bread, ect.for breakfast you could have eggs and potatoes. You wont starve.

  5. Robert Brown says:
