This was new to me as my partner and I had never had eczema. At times it would get so bad she would scratch her face until it bled, which broke my heart. I took her to the doctor who suggested steroid creams and adding bleach to her bathwater. Neither of these options sat well with me so I started my own research. I discovered that food can play a major part in skin problems. I also began to understand the importance of gut health in overall wellbeing.
I decided to try cutting out dairy and wheat completely from my diet whilst breastfeeding and started taking probiotics. Slowly Maisies skin got better and my knowledge and interest in diet developed. I became really fascinated with the role food can play in our health.
At that time there were very few healthy snack food options on the market and only a few that were dairy and wheat free. Most of those tended to taste like dust. I started baking my own snacks and eventually got used to the alternative flour options.
