HELP! Two weeks ago I was told my 5 year old son is wheat and dairy intolerant. Murphy's law, these are a few of his favourite things. Please can any give me some ideas on yummy tasting foods/recipes that I can give him. He also has to stay away from acidic fruits. I must admit though, that the last two weeks have been the ONLY two weeks, that my son has not been coughing,had a runny nose, or had to use his asthma pump, so it obviously works.

I have Celiac Disease and Lactose intolerant. I cannot have wheat or dairy. I find they have many more things now then they did 6yrs a g when I was diagnosed. Go to Whole Foods Grocery, there are many things that you can but for him to eat and snack on that are wheat free and dairy free.

I also recommend a registered dietitian. to find one, go to eatright.org and it can help you find a dietitian who specializes in food intolerances. also, there is a big difference between wheat intolerance and gluten intolerance and make sure that you are certain that he isn't gluten intolerant as well.

Hi - my 15 year old has been lactose intolerant for at least ten years - they often crave the thing they are allergic to (she definitely craves dairy and drinks milk by the pint). She found very quickly, even at a very young age, that it just isn't worth having the dairy stuff! The 'lactofree' milk, yoghurts and cheese, sold in most supermarkets is just like milk to drink (you really wouldn't notice the difference) and is much more palatable to younger children than soya or goats. However, be really careful about the 'hidden' lactose found in so much processed foods.

Good luck!

Make an appointment with a dietitican who specialises in food intolerances. You may find it helpful as they will give you plenty of resources. Good Luck.

Wheat free is a little less strick than gluten free. But if you check out the ROCK groups- Raising our Celiac Kids- they have links to websites for wheat free sites foods and recipes. "Whole foods" also post great recipes on their website. Rice based diet is the staple in our household since my son is Celiac Disease and has to be gluten free.

I have a lot of friends who are gluten free, dairy free, soy free... you name it, they can't eat it. I suggest Googling "dairy free recipes" or "wheat free recipes" or even "gluten free recipes" and see what you find. Your not alone. There are many kids out there with food alergies. It will be ok! Good luck.
