It does seem a bit funny that she says her tummy hurts only when eggs are eaten alone... Is she not an egg fan? I didn't like eggs much as a kid. I've had times where my kids claim their tummies hurt if they don't want to eat something, and this was after going gluten-free when they knew that if something (gluten) causes pain then they don't have to eat it. LOL Sneaky little boys...

Thanks everyone. She's always liked them in the past, but her gut is so damaged I guess I'm not really surprised she's having trouble. I had to switch her to almond milk as well because cows milk upset her - although cheese and yogurt are fine. Maybe I'll just back off on the eggs. A shame, they're such an easy food.
My son cycles through foods. He'll want one thing for breakfast for a few months then inexplicably refuse it and demand something else. Right now he wants pancakes....with sausage.
He previously wanted an egg omelet, plain.
Before that was Chex. He'd still take the Chex but I won't give it to him, which is part of the egg problem, I'm sure .
And he has used the "my belly hurts" excuse. But what can you do but trust what they say?

If you do have to take eggs out all the way, try soaking chia seeds in regular temperature tap water to make a "chia egg" gel. Not only is this fun to do, about a teaspoon or so of seeds can turn into enough "gel" to replace an egg in a recipe. It can also replace gums with some gluten free flours, and they have some nutrition value.
