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?

jjdrer says: I buy it mainly ftom Coles, occasionally Woolworths.
Apparently Munno Para Foodland IGA has a very good range. I beleive the store is owned by the Chapley family so their other stores probably have a good range too.
Drakes Foodland stores apparently have a range and have special tags on the shelves where the products are gluten free. As far as I know Drakes have 34 Stores in SA and one in Qld.
