hi my son glen seems to have this problem with lactose and we are finding this really difficult to cope with, mainly because he's resistant, he just wants to be able to eat what all he's friends are eating please if anyone has any advice i'd love to hear from you.

all my children have intolerance to dairy. They drink Soy Milk (silk)... Is there anything with dairy in it that he can consume without upsetting his stomache? IWth my sons they were allergic to dairy, but over the years they have been able to tolerate food, in some quanity.

Hi Gillian. How does he react to lactose? I would think if it upsets his stomach he wouldn't want to eat it. My son has a severe milk allergy so he just doesn't have the choice, but he is also still young enough for us to control what he eats.
Does he understand the cause and effect of having lactose makes him sick or is the reaction a bit delayed so he doesn't make the connection?
There are a lot of things out there that are milk free. You would be surprised. I did all my holiday baking this year milk free. I was surprised at how well things came out. Unfortunately, things like pizza are still off limits.
Good luck. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.
