Sunbutter is made from sunflower seeds, which are seeds - not nuts! So yes, it is okay, but he doesn't like it. We will keep trying it. He can have cheese, milk, yogurt - but not bread. He is allergic to wheat. It is all doable - but ideas for dishes that don't have wheat or soy would be great. They are not vegans - my daughter and her family actually eat fish. Unlike me :) But the only fish they have given him is fish sticks, which is coated with wheat. No wonder the little guy had a constant rash!
Is sunbutter sunflower nut butter? Is he not allergic to that too? I used to take sunflower seeds & throw them in the blender with a little oil-did that when I was a teenager-it tasted ok-seems to me it looked a grey color though? What about grilled cheese sandwiches? If you are vegan you could even use rice cheese-you could add a little swipe of tomatoe sauce even...will think on this...

I need some help here! Test results just came back from my grandson, who is almost four. He spends ALOT of time with us (much happiness!) Anyway, he is allergic to soy, peanuts, wheat and all tree nuts. This puts a serious dent in the diet of somone who mostly eats tofu and pasta. I would appreciate any and all recipies for food that has none of the above ingredients and is still vegetarian . . . and doesn't cost a mint like most "gluten free" foods! (By the way - can you believe that sunbutter costs $8 for a small jar????)
