I have three.
I would recommend joining the Mom Safety Alerts application on face book.
You will be notified of all food related recalls and health bulletins regarding allergies and child health.
It appears to be a new application but I have already received some really good information from them in a timely manner.
The app can be found at:

My son is allergic to dairy, soy, peanuts, eggs, and oats. It can be frustrating to find recipes that you can make him. However, I've found its easiest (and probably more healthy) to just stick with whole foods. He enjoys ground beef, turkey, ham, pork, etc. We give him frozen or fresh veggies and fruits as his side courses. It definitely isn't as fun to whip him up a meal, but it ensures that he isn't getting any of his allergines. My mother also bought me a book called The Everything Allergy Cookbook. It gives recipes to many foods leaving most of the major allergines out.

If she refused the rice milk try the vanilla or chocolate kind. I wouldn't try oat milk. chances are if she is allergic to wheay and rye she may be allergic to oat and barley. there are gluten free (found in wheat and rye) and dairy free pre-packaged snacks, drinks, cereals, deserts, bread mixes, cake mixes found in the natural food section of your grocery store. Fruit is always a great snack. carrot sticks, celery sticks, green, red, yellow and orange pepper sticks (my daughters fav). They make rice pasta...cook it up, coat it with a little olive oil, add tuna to it or a pasta sprinkle or italian seasoning. you can find coconut ice cream, tofu ice cream and frozen treats. she should be able to have frozen juice pops...if not make your own...use an ice tray and put a tooth pick in it. There is plenty for her to eat...it's just knowing where to look. If there is a natural food store or organic store in your area...check them out. You can even find chocolate chips and bars that are gluten, dairy and soy free. It's a lot of reading the ingredients but once you do the research you will be all set.

Two things...I was not sure from your response if she is allergic to the rice milk or refused it? I have found a great cookbook that cooks/bakes without the majors (Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish and Shellfish) called Sophie Safe Cooking (but uses rice milk in many of the recipes) because I did not have a clue what to do and maybe you are already way past it, but a great starter book for kids because the recipes have simple tastes. I know there are a few other good cookbooks out there that omit the big guys that cause problems so you may do a search for them.
My son is allergic to milk and refused the alternatives, our GI doc recomended the Neocate line (we use the Splash-flavored and comes in juice boxes) hypoallergenic/gluten and casein free...it has so much stuff in it that I am not sure if it contains any of your other allergins but maybe run it by your allergist to see or pull it up on line to see if you see any of them in the ingredients...it was very hard to see him only drink water for all those months before I found it! Good Luck.
There's a great company that makes a gluten free flour blend you can use cup for cup in any recipe! I highly recommend their flour and cornbread mix. www.gfgourmet.net
Also, there is a fabulous "milk" called dari-free. I've only been able to find it online but it works great my for son who cannot have dairy or soy. Good luck!
One thing you can try is goat's milk. A lot of people who can't have cow's milk CAN have goat's milk. There are also cheeses made from goat's milk. Of course you would want to make sure this IS the case with your granddaughter first. Also you can get rice milk and almond milk is actually quite tasty. Hope this helps a little.
