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?

Bazz says: It's actually easier than many people think, but it's expensive whichever way is chosen. We shop at a number of the best organic stores around. Buying the best fresh produce to begin with has always been what the "experts" on those cooking shows have recommended. It's easy to make tasty, healthy salads that everyone - allergies or not - can enjoy, without needing to check ingredients labels. Fresh organic whole fruits are also another food that will go down well for most allergy sufferers & some can be quite filling. This way everyone can enjoy the same or similar meals together.
