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?

Bettina says: It is true, now it seems many people have some sort of allergy or intolerance.In my case I have been diagnosed as celiac for many years.It is a lifetime condition. Our wellbeing depends on keeping avery strict gluten free diet.Unfortunately we have to spend double or even triple than other people.For example biscuits cost about $ 6-7 dollars, sliced bread $ 6 dollars.Coles and Woolworths store a good selection of free gluten food.
