a co-worker's 2 year old son has eczema. Dermatologist said it was eczema. It is suspected it is from tomato or other acidic food.

First off, I suggested getting him allergy tested to find out if it is the tomato or something else. I know that won't cover intolerances, but it is a start.

She said he loves pasta with sauce and might not eat it without sauce.

Is there a sauce she can make that does not have tomato or other acidic foods?

There are lots of suaces, but red sauce--maybe roasted red peppers? They're really quite sweet, but they are related to tomatoes, so he may or may not tolerate them...

caution: one-handed nak

typos likely

Or something with carrot juice or carrot puree?

When we found the DD wasn't tolerating tomatoes, we switched to a vegan pesto sauce (found it on allrecipes). It's not red, but she eats it up. Vegan d/t a dairy intolerance, but if he's fine with dairy just regular pesto would work.

There is a premade product called Nomato as well. I'm not sure how acidic it is though.

If he's not dairy allergic, you could maybe use an alfredo type of sauce. Pesto is great. You could probably also make a sweet sauce out of carrots, onions and broth...not exactly red, but it would be healthy and saucy! Boil them together and puree well.

We puree sweet potato and carrot and season to taste. It's good but not red. My husband makes it; I could get more specifics. Beet in place of sweet potato will make it more red (sort of pinky red if I remember right) but we didn't like the taste as well. Nomato is red in my understanding but they may add vinegar/I can't remember. Let me know if you want me to ask my husband for spice and quantity information.

no, that is not necessary - thank you!

Thanks everyone for the responses. I sent them to my co-worker.
