I am trying to get my picky kids to eat healthier by slipping things into their meals they would normally not eat. For example adding cauliflower to mashed potatoes or carrots to tomato sauce. I would like to start using healthier oils too.
My question is two parts. First, my youngest got a rash from topical coconut oil, like in sunscreen, and is allergic to almonds. I assume that means he would just as allergic, or more so to ingesting it, correct? Second, I know animal fats are one, but they are not the best choice all of the time. What are some alternatives to coconut oil or animal fat?
