I’ll admit, I’ve gotten a bit lazy at reading ingredients. I’ve figured what Joseph can and can’t eat, so I can identify at a glance whether or not Joseph can eat it.
I’d forgotten that even though I buy Joseph-safe hotdogs, there are still many brands of hot dogs that have casein – a milk protein.
This Saturday, we went to a church barbeque where the bishopric was providing all the hotdogs for everybody. I didn’t read the ingredients. Joseph happily ate his bunless hotdog. But the next day, Joseph would not stop rubbing his eye, and it was all red. Thankfully Benadryl calmed it.
Now, I’ll admit, it could have been pollen that he reacted to. But it still pays to be careful.
