I am so sorry about your little one. When my first kiddo was diagnosed, I didn't really believe it either. It wasn't until a big flare a year later that I finally accepted that he really had it. When my second child was diagnosed this Aug. I just wanted to lay down and die. I couldn't eat or sleep. I cried all the time.
For my kiddos there really doesn't seem to be a link to food that we can tell. My daughter is lactose intolerant, but even that doesn't really cause any problems for her (she's never been a milk drinker, but does fine with cheese and yogurt). I wonder about seasonal type allergies as my son flare every spring or summer of every year since he was diagnosed and in hind sight for a couple of years before he was diagnosed.
There is a site for parents of IBDers that is wonderful. Check it out at: http://www.dragonpack.com/ibdsupport/parents/ They are a great group with lots of experience!
Again, sorry about your little one!!
