Every so often, I come across a commentary dismissing "perceived food allergies" as fussy eating. Of course, I know my peanut and nut allergic child has true allergies because I have witnessed unmistakable reactions, confirmed later by testing. I imagine it is difficult to misread someone's throat closing up. He is, however, a rather particular eater and I have always wondered if that is related to his food allergies. Is my guy unique among food allergic kids or do other food allergy families have fussy eaters too? Left to his own devices, I think mine would live off of bread and pink lady apples!
Are we unique? Or can you relate?
