my daughter is 2. She's allergic to eggs. She seems to have somewhat outgrown it a bit as if we unexpectedly gave it to her (like didn't know mac and cheese had eggs in it...) she will vomit 3h after the fact.
The allergist told us we should re-introduce egg using store-bought bake goods where eggs are the fifth ingredient in the list. Anybody has suggestions or know a product I could buy?
I bought the hostess mini muffins (miscounting and egg is the 3rd ingredient) and after two of them, she vomited 3hours later. The donettes are only 2% or less of eggs... so she ate almost 2 of them and she was fine...

We did this with my LO too, except his reaction was hives instead of vomiting, and we re-introduced when he was 18mo. The first food we tried was Entenmann's Little Bites blueberry muffins - eggs were the fifth ingredient on there (I'm assuming they still are!) He's 2.5 now and his allergy has been steadily reducing, so I'm hoping it'll go away completely.

We couldn’t really reintroduce until age 3 but then we did increasing amounts and by the time he was 4 he could eat a whole egg no problem! So no advice on the baked goods but it might just take a little longer.
