Fave Products

A comment left on a blog post (about IKEA) recently, by someone trying to track down gluten free meatballs, left me thinking that there are heaps of products that Baby and I have got to know that may be useful to others. They are pretty much all listed in a post on this blog or on our Face Book page, but to find all of these products, you'd have a lot of trawling to do. 

So I've decided to compile a list and link them (click on the blue writing) to the posts in which they're featured and/or their own websites - so you can find out a bit more. It's not in its complete form, yet, so bear with us. This is just a start - we'll constantly be adding new products, as and when we find them (and have time to add them) which will probably be featured on face Book first (so you know where to find them). Oh, and if you have any more to add, please let us know :)

So here they are - our favourite (so not an exhaustive list, but tried and tested by us) dairy free (df), gluten free (gf), soya free (sf) and now including egg free (ef) products, as well as a few skin products, and where to source them. If you feel that some products are listed wrongly, please notify me, as soon as possible, as I would hate to misinform anyone.

In respect of the fact that for some people 'gluten free' means only products that have been officially tested, in line with UK standards I have amended some products originally listed as 'gluten free' to 'no gluten containing ingredients'. Also, in recognition of the fact that some people who cannot tolerate soya, may be OK with soya lecithin, I have indicated when a product contains 'just' soya lecithin. 

Please note: those highlighted in green are those that have been recently updated.

Baby Foods
Many early baby foods are free of allergens. I've not listed any here, as baby moved on from this stage some while ago, and the baby food manufacturers change their recipes all the time. Hipp Organic have a search facility on their website, to help you choose baby foods that are suitable, for your baby.
