My 5yo dd has a slew of allergies. I am a BIG chicken about trying new foods with her. Part of my chicken-ness has to do with a fear of reaction (obviously) and also a fear of disappointment. But I have discovered yet another fear. For instance, dd eats clams. She loves them. We all do. Yay! A fun thing to eat on Friday nights. I am wanting to expand our diet in this area. Scallops are so yummy. I would love to try them. But here is my fear. What if dd reacts to scallops and then can no longer tolerate clams. I have the same fear with olives. Olive oil is one of the few healthy and safe oils for dd. What if she reacts to olives and then can no longer tolerate the oil??
Is my fear crazy??? I think in terms of the olive/olive oil it isn't. But what about the clams and scallops? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am a pg woman looking for more protein sources and craving scallops Plus, I would love to expand her diet.
