With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

How many ways to eat bananas?

Well, so far so good with the banans.
We’ve become adventurous with them. Nathan sliced some up and made banana chips with our dehydrator.  She didn’t like them at first but has snacked on them on and off.


At first she said they were too hard. I think since they have sat a while a softened up a bit she can chew them more easily.


Nathan has also made her fried bananas.


She claimed to like them but only ate a couple bites. Which, is common for her and Gage to do. We’ll try them again in a few days and see what she thinks then. I’m sure she’s getting banana’d out.


I’m going to introduce her to squash on Tuesday this week. That’s also the day the boys have allergy testing so they’ll all be trying something new that night. VERY EXCITING!!!!

  1. Hi Kara!

    Recently I’ve been reading your blog. I find it AMAZING all the work and effort you give your kids and your husband.

    I never knew that EoE even existed before, and you have made it clear to me that it is a problem that we need to solve and educate people about.

    I think that you need to give yourself more credit for the wonderful things that you do for your husband and children. It is amazing and I know that they are very grateful.

    Reading back early in to your blog, I realized one kid is allergic to corn. I was wondering if anybody still is. I have a suggestion that may not be completely safe, but it will definitely be worth researching.

    On Passover, Jewish people don’t eat food with corn in it. They also don’t eat anything that comes in a pod, or that has yeast, those are the basics. However, we do eat a LOT of egg…. which is definitely a common allergy. I think that you should try eating some Kosher for Passover recipes. They don’t have corn in them, so that may help. There’s a bunch of crackers (Tam-Tam’s are delicious, but might have egg) that your kids could eat, and matzah! Some matzahs are specifically egg matzah, but I think that others may be egg free. I think that looking in the Kosher for Passover direction food-wise may be a nice solution to some food finding problems!

    Thank you!
