Hi my 2 and half year boy was diagnosed with a cows milk protein intolerance at 10days old. You find you will spend two to three times as long getting the groceries from now on reading all the ingredient labels.
Heres a few things I have learnt:
Spc tinned spahgetti (tomato sauce) is the only one that doesn't contain dairy
Baked beans are good again the plain tomato sauce
Nutelex spread instead of butter or margerines
Roast meals are good
Sausages and mash [ use nutelex, warm up some soy or rice milk to make your mash creamier]
Eggs are a great dairy free food! I never used milk in my scrambled don't need to just use more eggs. Boiled egg mashed with avocado is very yummy.
Go to your health food section of your supermarket and you'll find Outback bisuits for kids and lots of other goodies such as dairy free wheat free cake mixes etc.
I give my little boy soy yohgurt or soy ice cream for deserts. He like the chocolate flavoured soy milks which have added calcium.
He hasn't taken to the non dairy cheeses as they are that tasty, but the cream cheeses aren't too bad for fresh sandwhiches oh and Brumbies doesn't add milk to their bread.
Snacks like grapes, rice crackers, ritz crackers have no dairy but jatz do!
Cut up fruit platters.
Hope this helps a little.

I make these muffins all the time (very easy)
2 1/2 cups SR flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 mashed bananas or 1 cup raspberries or apple, or carrot or some coca or whatever you like

Mix all together and cook in moderate oven 180 degrees for 20mins.

These are very yum and easy - can't go wrong.

I have a blog that has recipes/information for those with one to all of the top 8 food allergens. It may be very helpful to you! Here's the link: http://naturalandfree.blogspot.com/ Any of the recipes that call for milk or a milk product, you can easily substitute a non-dairy "milk" or non-dairy butter, etc.



Here are a few more links that you may find helpful:

Yes, it is quite difficult. I'm also very allergic to milk (lactose and protein), but for my part I have simply avoided a whole lot of foods my entire life as they make me violently ill. It may ease up as she gets older (some allergies do), but don't count on the lactose portion being out of question - over 50% of people are lactose intolerant, and it becomes more likely as you get older as your body is no longer able to make the enzyme to break it down. So be careful with both. We lived near a town (Lake Norton) that is a dairy processing plant town and they had powdered milk in the air from the plant; I would become so ill I had to go to the ER every time we went there! So avoid places like that as well if any are near you.

there are loads of dairy free recipe books around now (I have a complete intolerance towards all dairy products).

My son has dairy, egg and fish allergies. He reacts the same with protein as yours do, he is currently on prescribed milk which is nutramigen, it is cows milk but the protein is heat treated until is broken down and he gets on really well with it. No eczema, swelling, rashes etc for months. Because of his other allergies I tend to do alot of hotpots, stews etc and swear by my slow cooker as I'm not a great cooker. You can do almost anything in it. My son's favourite is ratatoutille which is not made in the slow cooker but extremely easy to make and cheap. In the slow cooker I do soups like moroccan chickpea soup, beef and ale stew, chicken chasseur. It really is a godsend. I make huge portions and freeze them.

Good luck

oops sorry forgot to add at the end - add water until the get to a slightly gooey consistency
approx. 3/4 cup, but add gradually if they are too runny they won't rise as well.

We use a ton of fresh fruit and veggies here for snacks, and fresh mushrooms (very low protein, not healthy if your child eats a bulk of them unless they have a specific need). We make our own bread from starch base (again, very low protein), but you can do the same as it's dairy free, you'd only need to substitute the dairy instead of all the ingredients. The cookbook Apples to Zucchini has a lot of dairy-free recipes (with alterations for regular protein needs, still dairy free). It was well worth the cost of buying, and it's not an expensive book.

Unfortunetly i'm not a huge baker lol I'm huge on fresh fruits and vegetables tho. So from now on she'll have to snack on fruits and veggies!! I saw some Soy cheeses in the store today but all of them had some sort of milk product in it. I'll just have to find a store that sells lots of dairy free foods!!

My families coeliac (gluten allergy) and lactose intolerant so adapt as fits your situation:

Macaroni cheese with peas

250g Gluten free spirals (we use sanremo)

2 tbls of your dairy free spread

1.5 cups water

1 cup soy milk/rice milk

.5 cup grated soya cheese ( you can also see if your child has the same reaction to goats cheese/milk, quite often they dont)

1 cup frozen baby peas



You can also add mince, carrot and canned tomato to the dish to add variety.

Cook pasta and drain.

Meanwhile melt the spread and add your cornflour. Gradually add your water and soy/rice milk stirring constantly (you want the mixture to be smooth and thick)

This is a basic roo, you can use this to make lasagne topings or white sauces etc

Add your peas and cooked pasta and sprinkle cheese over the top, bake until cheese it melted.

That's really interesting! I looked it up (http://www.a2milk.com/) and it says A2 milk has the same protein as regular milk, but is missing ONE of the proteins in it. So if you know the protein that is a problem is specifically A1, A2 milk would be very helpful. Otherwise, it's not.

[deleted account]

My son has this protein intollerance/allergy, but can have "A2" milk which has a different protein than regular milk, what a blessing - still can't have prepackaged food, so it means a lot of baking, but well worth it.

Yes, my doctor said she's lactose intolerant but I was reading up on it last night seeing what she could and could not eat and what to watch for on labels and it said that children with lactose intolerance do not vomit it up and they do not break out in eczema. So I searched throwing up after drinking milk and the Milk Protein Allergy came up and she has every one of those symptoms. Throwing up after drinking milk, eating yogurt/ice cream and diarrhea if she eats anything containing milk. Along with the eczema break out and the swollen legs. So i'm quite positive it's the protein allergy which is a lot harder to deal with rather than the lactose intolerance!!

She breaks out in eczema and vomits, A LOT for about a day after drinking milk and if she eats anything with milk in it she gets diarrhea. Her legs and arms also swell a bit. Thanks a bunch! I went grocery shopping today and I didn't realize how much stuff contains milk!!

Lactaid will NOT help with a milk PROTEIN allergy. It has very reduced lactose, not protein.

my son had this too. just wonderin is it a full allergy (hives, throat closing, ect.) or is it an intolerance (diarreah, tmi, small rash, ect). my son had the intolerance. If she does it is a little easier to deal with, if it is the full allergy then it is harder. My son was on stuff called Lactaid (its expensive), but this helps break down the dairy products, it will cause an intolerance to be manageable. My son was on lactaid for 3 1/2 year, I would still watch what dairy he was given but it allowed him to have a little bit each day (ie a string cheeze, quesidilla, ect.). hoped this helped a little. I don't know of any recipies, but here is a few websites that might help:

Sorry there are so many websites. I personally dont know of any recipies, I have looked at these websites. the bottom two were my favorites to look at. I couldnt figure out how to make them quick links sorry!

You can actually use Rice, Almond or Soy milk as a replacement as ANYTHING you use milk in (including drinking and cereal). Rice is least likely to develop an allergy to. A lot of foods use milk protein and byproducts in them, even when you don't add it (ex: Kraft mac and cheese pasta is made with the whey and still causes an allergic reaction in my kids), so read labels carefully as well. There are imitation cheeses you can get as well (NO dairy in them); one type is available at a regular store near Kraft sliced cheese, the rest are available online. Be careful as they do not melt so it's easy to burn the meal.

And a food site with many foods for major allergies (you can probably find another that is more cost friendly; my daughter cannot have ANY protein in most foods, hence this site) -
