Woodjie tested positive for milk and egg allergies when he was about 2. Since then, we've done milk and egg free faithfully. I asked the doctor today at his checkup if he'd do another blood test and he told me to just go feed him whatever and see what happens. He's not that allergic that he would die if he reacts. But if he gets a rash or runny poo, guess that's it for that.
I took him out for Pizza Hut today! Ohhhh he was so excited! When the food finally arrived, he thought it was the best food ever, because he was gnawing on the crusts. He got to the cheesy part. The food is pretty foreign to him and "gooey." He didn't want to eat it. It's not right. I encouraged him a bit and he at least ate a fair bit of his personal pan pizza.
Tonight, I gave him a glass of milk! "Eeew it yuck!" he told me. More encouragement. Bribes even.
Woodjie LOVES potato bread toast with peanut butter. So for dinner, I gave him regular bread with butter and cinnamon sugar! "Ughhhh. I no like at. Is bad."
Sigh. So the kid is used to eating potato bread and thinks butter is a strange food. He smeared the butter all around everywhere, tentatively licked his finger again, and wrinkled his entire face. "NO want dat. You eat it."
Well, we'll see how the next couple of days go with the milk. Next up: eggs.
