Calling all Cooks: Share your allergy-friendly recipes!


Posted 3.4.10 | Sarah O'Brien

We know how difficult mealtime can be for kids whose food choices are restricted by food allergies. So, we thought it might be helpful to put together a Food Allergy Cookbook. But we need help from families like you who have worked through trial and error to develop yummy recipes that your kids with food allergies can enjoy.

We’re asking you to share with us your favorite “safe food” recipes so we can compile them into a collaborative cookbook and share with food allergy families. We’ll say “thanks” with a $5 gift card to Target!*

We want everyone – from the overwhelmed parent with a newly diagnosed child with food allergies to the veteran allergy-free cook – to learn something from others who have faced similar challenges. This is an excellent opportunity to share your delicious creations, lend a hand to other members of the allergy community and maybe discover something new for your own family. Each selected recipe will be credited to you and printed alongside a photo of the dish and/or your family enjoying it.

Submission requirements:

  • Please send recipe submissions to foodallergyliving@shsna.com by April 1, 2010.
  • The only requirement is that the recipe must omit at least one of the top eight allergens. But of course we’d love to see the creative ways you’ve found to use the Neocate product range – including Neocate Junior,Neocate Nutra and E028 Splash!
  • If possible, please send photos of the dish and/or of your little ones enjoying your recipe.

Once we receive everyone’s submissions, we’ll compile our favorites into an online cookbook that you can download and share with your friends, families and support groups. Of course we can’t pick every entry, but everyone who submits a recipe will receive the $5 gift card to Target.

Here at Nutricia, we’re all really excited about this idea and we can’t wait to see what recipes you all submit. So, thanks in advance!

* Recipes must be your own. A maximum of five $5 gift cards will be sent to each household (one for each recipe submitted).
