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?

niknik says: I don't know if i could get the angus beef sausages here. we do have a butcher who makes our sausages unfortunatly they only have natrural flavour we have rosemary and spice but all natural and they come sugar free we have to pre order them. But the price is pretty good. Bacon is the worst for sugar content we can only buy one brand available that is sugar free. Silver side is loaded full of sugar as well. I don't understand why somthing that is corned and smoked has to have sugar in it. Thankyou for your feedback. I will keep my eye out for the angus gluten free sausages. Now i'm hungry and I don't have any sausges.
