Chang's crunchy snacks

I'm the newest fan of the brand Chang's. I first came across it because it was in the health food section of my supermarket, where we often buy things. I started with their gluten free Tamari Hoi Sin sauce - leading to a new range of asian style foods for our boy. Our latest additions are Chang's Original Fried Noodles and Chang's Crunchy Noodles. These are great because they can be stored in the pantry, eaten straight out of the packet, or used to liven up other dishes. As I've said before, I am dubious about imported products from Asia but the gluten free tag encouraged me to give it a go. Since then, I've discovered that these noodles are actually made in Australia, so hopefully product control is more stringent. The best test? Our son's had quite a bit of these lately, and no signs of a rash so far. I'll be on the look out for more products by them now!
Parents of non-allergy kids will sometimes wonder why I get so excited about processed food like this. Well, everytime we go out, we have to bring absolutely everything for our son. We can't get by with breaking off some of our food, or cutting a bit of whatever to give our son to taste. Plus, if I want to have any chance of enjoying my food, I need to make sure the food I bring along is just as exciting for our son. Thus, any new discovery that reduces the need for me to cook is a super bonus!

Do you have products or sauces at home that you use for your toddler? Have a look at the label. Does it contain traces of milk, egg or nuts? Is it free from coconut, sesame, oats, shellfish, any fish apart from salmon and tuna? If the answer is yes, and in particular, if it is a sauce used to flavour your dishes, please let me know, so we can give it a try!
