My little boy Cathal, was born in 2007 with severe and multiple food allergies, and severe eczema (both are commonly linked).

Although I was already passionate about cooking at home, I still found it difficult to cater for Cathal, until I learned how to cook allergy free meals, and so I developed lots of recipes suitable for him. He is now a happy, healthy 5 year old, and you would never know that he still has food allergies, or eczema.

The first thing I had to do was get his eczema under control. Then I concentrated on his food allergies.
