I'd get a full test to see what all your son is allergic to, and work around that. Believe me, I've heard stories about odd allergies, where parents work around the allergians. Good luck.

Yep I second to get him checked out.<br><br>
I have an allergy to certain raw fruit (quite a lot of fruit), raw vegetables, a couple of nuts and soya milk/cream/yogurt. It's not actually a food allergy, but a oral reaction to the plant proteins in foods which is linked to hayfever. It's actually not as big a deal as I thought it was - I'm really miffed I can't eat some of my favourite foods (soy yogurt, raw apples, peaches, plums, kiwis, to name a few) but there is such a huge variety of fruit and vegetables out there it isn't as limiting as you might think. ]<br><br>
Focus on the foods your son can eat, and substitute them for the veg he can't - the ones you listed are the main cheap vegetables most people use, but there's lot more out there you can try, you can also use a lot of fruits in cooking (peaches in chilli, lots of dried fruit in morrocan dishes, fruit curries from africa too) so maybe try putting more fruits in your cooking for variety also? If you're really struggling and worried about your sons diet you could consider seeing a dietition - and they can look at making meal plans/suggestions for a healthy varied diet out of what your son can eat.<br><br>
Goodluck - I hope it works out and you find a diagonsis and a fullfilling diet for your son <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
