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?

kazza says: I am allergic to fish and shellfish, i have to check everything that i purchase to makesure that there is no possibility that it hasnt come into contact, but to be honest to be kn the safe side, i normally make as much as i can from scratch. its a pain nowdays as so many products now have some form of seafood ingredient in it,:- even products you would not expect
