Dear Eben
If your friend's son is allergic to wheat, maize and oats then he can still eat rice-based cereals (Rice Crispies) and sorghum porridge (Maltabella). To read more about food allergies click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Allergy & intolerance'. Your friend can also contact the Allergy Association by visiting their Website at: to find out more about allergies.
Best regards
