My 9 yr old son has been battling Lyme since Sept. He regressed into a wheelchair and unable to walk due to pain. We have been battling this disease head on with our LLMd and other therapies. He is now walking. We cut out the food he is allergic to but he is still eating and craving sugar food. Long story short I need some kid friendly recipes with NO EGGS, ALMONDS, COCONUT, APPLES, CHICKEN, MILK just to name a few. I also have 4 kids and a bit overwhelmed.....any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. We are already GF. Thanks.

OMG, with four kids and one so ill you must be overwhelmed, and unfortunately there's not an easy solution. Hang in there! I'm sending strength and good thoughts your way.
Can I suggest you look at the GAPS diet? It's likely with lyme disease that your son has been treated with heavy duty antibiotics, and the first thing you MUST do is heal his gut, then slowly add foods to tolerance. It's probably a much longer list of things he's really intolerant too, but it should improve significantly once his gut has been given a chance to heal. Gaps starts with lots of bone broth and probiotics.
There are blogs and resources all over the net for doing this with kids. The first stages are not easy, but have the potential to make a huge difference in his overall health, not just in food tolerances. If you contact the local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation you can find GAPS practitioners who can guide you in person, too.
Truly, this is worth looking into. The anecdotal evidence is that people's health improves dramatically with this protocol.
