Kids and Food and Allergies

I recently joined Influenster and oddly enough, I had a bottle of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise sent to me to try out. We normally don’t go through enough mayo or spread of any kind to make us go through an entire jar before the expiration date. Of course that was before the kiddo.

IMG_9850When we first started feeding him solid foods, we noticed that he would develop a rash on some occasions. There wasn’t ever a rhyme or reason to it either. Then we started making foods for him using the Hellman’s mayonnaise bottle I received.

We made egg salad, cheese sandwich roll-ups (pictured to the right) and various other items. That mayonnaise became the control in my little experiments. It was one of the things that would keep him eating what was on his plate.

Well, eventually with the help of that awesome squeeze bottle (seriously, no more messy butter knives) of Hellmann’s, we have discovered that there is a 99% chance that he has a yeast allergy!  He has a doctor appointment next week, so cross your fingers and expect to see yeast free recipes here soon.

Hellmann’s totally wins props for tagging their social media campaign, #SqueezeMoreOut! I really do like the no mess bottle, especially now when kiddo is clinging to my leg acting like he has never eaten before. I haven’t reached the bottom of the bottle yet but so far it’s been nice to not deal with a mess. I wonder if the bottles will transfer over well to the other condiments. I can’t stand when they splatter on my food or worse, me.
