If you have just one child on a special diet how do you handle what siblings are allowed to eat? At home, I try to only keep things in the house that are "safe" so that he knows that if it's in the house, he can eat it. Also, it's a lot of time and trouble to make extra meals. It's much easier to just cook or bake safe foods then everyone eats the same thing.
Away from home, though, it's a little different. Little Brother is only 2 1/2 and it's hard to explain to him why everyone else is eating cake or cookies (or whatever) and he can't. He's not the one with food issues (as far as we know). J is nine, though and he understands that there are things he can't eat. He doesn't like it, but he understands it. And I always bring him something so he has something safe to eat. It's just not always the same thing everyone else is eating. Someone made the remark this weekend that it's not fair that Little Brother gets to eat cake but J doesn't. Since J can't, Little Brother shouldn't be able to, either.
