A 'disgusted' mum has been left raging at a children's hospital as she claims her sick baby was given food containing milk, which he is allergic to.
Elisha Parker had taken her son Amiro to Nottingham Children's Hospital on Tuesday, 13 July after he experienced breathing difficulties and he was admitted.
The 8 month old suffers from a milk allergy, and remained in hospital until Friday, when he experienced an allergic reaction after he was given food.

Elisha ordered food for her son from the hospital's food trolley and was given a few options to choose from. But, after a few mouthfuls she noticed that Amiro's face had flared up.
She said: "Amiro has got an allergy to milk and can’t have anything with milk in it.
"I made that very clear, and they were all aware, even down to the catering staff. They came to me and asked if Amiro wanted anything to eat and I said yes, but he has a milk allergy and can't have anything with milk in it."
"It affected his eczema, it made him sick and gave him diarrhoea. He was poorly as it was, he did not need anything else adding to the fuel."
Now a frustrated Elisha says "it should not have happened" and wants to warn other parents who have children with allergies.

Elisha said: "Other parents need to know to check the packages of food before they feed their children. It could have been more serious. Luckily Amiro was only mildly affected by this but that's not the point.
"It has made me think completely differently about the NHS. I'm still in shock from what happened."
A spokesperson at Nottingham University Hospitals Trust, said: “We take all food allergies and intolerances very seriously. We have met with the family to apologise and to explain the additional steps that are in place to try and prevent this from happening again.”
