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?

There may be some things in the "normal" aisles that will be ok but you have to read labels each time as if it doesn't state " ........."free they can change the ingredients . Unfortunately if you buy processed foods they will be more expensive than "normal" . We tend to eat the same.
