We dove in today, cutting out all fifteen of the foods we just found out Keandre is allergic to, as well as the four foods we already knew about. It's too early to know for sure if this is the difference, but Keandre had a really good day! He was more relaxed and happy than usual, he listened and obeyed with far fewer tantrums, and he didn't throw up at all.
He's a little surprised by the fact that he can't eat a lot of his favorite foods anymore, like pears and oatmeal, but so far he is taking it in stride. We were too wiped out last night to go shopping, so when breakfast rolled around, my question was, "Keandre, would you like turkey, avocado, and corn chips for breakfast?" Oh, my. You would think I asked him if he wanted ice cream! He was ecstatic. LOL
This evening we went to Trader Joe's for a 'safe foods' shopping spree. Keandre hugged his bag of chips tight and shouted at the top of his lungs, "I LOVE you, veggie chips!" Shoppers 20 feet away turned and laughed.
