I read labels, shopping takes longer than normal. If the package changes, the price changes in any way read the ingredients again. If you have a specific allergy - to yeast, gluten etc make sure you know the safe/unsafe food numbers as well. If you have a smart phone, record them in the note section of your phone - if not, write them out and take a photo.
In my house, normally we cook to suit the allergies but with some meals we eat different foods - pasta with different sauces, burgers with different fillings etc.
If this is a true food allergy (rather than a sensitivity) then read the labels every time you shop!!! Companies change recipes all the time without any information or indication.
Good luck and try to stay positive.
