So as I mentioned before my son was sick after having kiwi. This week was his first week at nursery and the second morning he was going he was sick - I realised there was kiwi in his sick so he definitely can't eat them. Do you think this will be something he grows out of? Luckily the unit head of the baby room knows me as she looked after my daughter and I explained and she was fine to take him. He was then sick two days later and noticed that raisins / grapes were in his sick so I'm not sure if it's maybe acidic foods?
I'm seeing the doctor on friday anyway because he's been on lactose free milk for his eczema (don't think it's made any difference) so will mention as our specialist appointment about his skin isn't until the end of April

I've no experience of this. Could the added upset be that he has just started nursery and isn't used to the new food rather than having an intolerance to them? Maybe try the grapes / raisins at home and see what happens. Good luck x

Yes could be, just strange as the kiwi has happened before. Was thinking maybe it's just they're acidic and his stomach isn't ready rather than an intolerance perhaps? Had enough sick to deal with this week so think I'll wait a while before I try again!!

He's been much better this week. But been on the dairy free diet for over a week and no improvement to his skin or itching so will mention that to the doctor on Friday as well! He's been much more himself which is good

I had this conversation with my mum this morning - she is a teacher at a primary school for children with special needs and she said that kiwi is a really common allergy food because it is so high in acid - also pineapple is another. I can't eat pineapple as it makes my tongue and lips sore and itchy/burny - I think its a slight allergy and so I just avoid it now. I won't rush to give these foods to Bert as he might have the same reaction - all the time he's happily enjoying the less acidic fruits we'll stick to them!
