Five Year Old Allergic to All Food

KALEB, 5, cannot eat. He does not just have a peanut allergy or a milk allergy. He is allergic to all food.

The only things he can put in his mouth are water and a certain brand of lemonade.

He is fed for 20 hours a day through a machine that pumps nutrients directly into his stomach.

Unless doctors can find a cure, he will never have his first beer, or a birthday cake, the Advertiser reports.

He can not even share pencils with friends in case he accidentally ingests a bit of food left there.

His mother, Melissa Bussenschutt, said doctors have "no idea" exactly what is wrong with him except that food makes him violently ill and fills his stomach with ulcers.

"Little did we know he was in so much pain," she said.
