    Picnics for kids with food allergies and moms on WW

    Mon Jun 27, 2005 9:29 pm Groupie
    Ok. My cousin is in town and we are planning a bunch of day trips. Her son is deathly allergic to eggs and nuts and has problems with certain textures (like chunky things and really hard things). And both my cousin and I are on WW. I am looking for lunch type things to pack. Sandwhiches are tough so I was thinking lots of little containers of food. But all 3 kids are 6 or under and fairly picky. Any suggestions for things that would pack well for the zoo or other places?

    Maybe you should ask her for a list of food her child can and will eat and start from there.

    I was thinking
    Crackers with American Cheese for kids

    Chicken salad (put through food processor) with light mayo - adults can eat wraps/pita/or lettuce sandwiches and you can use white bread and make little kid sandwiches using cookie cutters to make fun shapes like stars and hearts and flowers and such.....or the kids can use it as a dip with crackers

    Graham Crackers - could even put cream cheese and jelly on them - WW people can eat them (w/o stuff) and kids love them.

    celery with cottage cheese and rasins (ants on a log) you can put peanut butter on the ones for the kids without allergy- kinda hard, but maybe he will like it

    Pudding Snacks

    little meatballs on toothpicks

    little meatballs with small "O" noodles or orzo and plain spaghetti sauce - Light pasta salad for adults w/ more veggies in dish for them

    Fruit Kabobs with yogurt sauce!!!! yummy!

    For all of you: I've tried both of these recently and think all of you might like it.
    Fruit Medley recipe #17192 by Derf or Simple Fruit salad recipe #114593 by Bergy

    For the kids:
    Dogs and Taters recipe #23121 by MizzNezz in a thermos to stay warm.
    Cubes or strings of cheese.
    Fresh veggies & a dip.
    Chicken nuggets & a dip.

    For the adults:
    Maybe a wrap? or a salad of some sort?

    I am not familiar with the WW program so hestitate to waste your time recommending recipes.

    Can he have eggs in baked products? Or do you need egg-less all together? As far as WW goes, I have several salads that would work well in my recipes.

    I think that lunchmeat would be a good option for everyone too.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. This child can have no eggs at all and no nuts at all and it has been a challenge. We've made it through the week ok, luckily. I'd love to see those WW salads!

    Thanks again!

    He's just like my sister then - and believe me my mom had to be extremely inventive. Your story reminded me of one of her favourite picnic foods, so I put it up - it might be too late for your cousin's family, but here it is anyway: Spicy Chicken Salad.

    My daughter is picky, has allergies to eggs, milk, apples, canteloupe, beef, chocolate, ... and she is horribly bothered by certain textures. I can sympathize. The picnic is likely over, but I thought I would suggest wraps (we use pepito brand tortillas and dietz and watson ham. This brand of ham seems a bit healthier with less that kids can be allergic to). The texture is tolerable for mine. You can make more flavorful wraps for the big people. Be careful not to put mayo on the kid wraps, since that contains eggs, but my kids don't think it needs it anyway. Fruit salad is always good. We love the mom's chocolate cupcakes (recipe #105594). I make mine with carob. The carob decreases the fat content, I think. We use it to avoid the chocolate. Those cupcakes don't contain egg or milk. Our whole foods store carries delicious sunflower butter (like peanut butter) that the kids might enjoy in place of peanuts. They could dip apples in it, for ex. It's fattening, though! Good luck and enjoy
