Allergy members - how do you shop for food?

Can you talk me through how you go about food shopping for yourself or a member of your family that has a food allergy. Do you go to the local supermarket or specialist store? If a supermarket, do you buy from the health food aisle or regular aisles? Do you have to check every ingredient label or do products advertise themselves well enough? Do you have to buy specific foods? Is your food bill more expensive as a result? And finally does your household all eat the same meals, or does the person with the food allergy eat separate food?

It's nice to know that their is an allergy to citrus, people always looked at me strange and had a pretty good gut laugh when i told them I couldn't have citrus or anything that may contain citrus. My goodness even the cleaning citrus sprays sends me. I thought i wouldn't pass it on to my children due to my allergy being caused from eating to much citrus. But it happened, neither of my children can have it. It was good to hear about the anti caking agent as well. We are a family of gluten, lactose, sugar, preservative, and additive free. We all did the same eating plan as it made it heaps easier than making all different meals. Have you noticed how hard it is to buy meat that is infact sugar and preservative free. I am petty pedantic about what i give my kids and infact myself ,didn't relise how horrible i was feeling until we started on this eating plan a year ago now i feel 10 years younger. You must be one of the best aunts out there Blossom to accomodate the needs of your nephew it is so nice to hear.My mother in law does the same makes visiting and sleep overs so much easier.
