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?

They ensure that the oats they use are not grown anywhere near wheat or other grain crops. They use special machinery to ensure that. I think all that brand of food is Gluten Free but you would need to check that on google. Coles have their own brand of gluten free pasta. My nephew eats it with no side effects so it must be OK.
