Well we went to Ikea last night after dropping my husband off at the airport. I figured Cooper could eat some fructose friendly food there and my daughter could eat whatever she wanted. They ran out of fish so I ordered chips for Cooper. Most of the time that seems all we can ever order when we go out because of his intolerances to Dairy and Soy on top of his Sucrose and Fructose Malabsorption.
His response to hot chips on his plate was less than enthusiastic.
I tried to order fish but they had run out. I ordered the meatballs and Cooper was eyeing them off and crying out 'some' 'some'.
Relunctantly I let him have half a meat ball and proceeded to try to eat my meal. Once Cooper got a taste for those meatballs that was it he kept harping on at me. So in the end I think he consumed 1.5 meatballs. Well it was enough to give him awful stomach aches twice throughout the night and it went on for hours. I knew once I tried a meatball that it had the dreaded onion in it. So I felt we were going to be up with tummy pain.
It's so heatbreaking just going out, there is nothing to give them but hot chips. Imagine that being your only choice everytime you went out to lunch or dinner. Very boring.
I guess I'm going to have to get used to the idea of just packing him a meal whenever we go out.
