Hi Mums



About a month ago we found out that our little boy was Lactose Intolerant. I am desperately looking for some ideas on quick easy Breakfast, and lunch snacks or meals to give him. Any ideas would be much appreciated :-)

My 22 month old daughter is allergic to milk, she can't even handle butter without having a reaction. Check labels really carefully even on things you wouldn't think would have milk in them - I've been very surprised at some things - like raisin bread, cereal bars and some cereals. My grocery store has non-dairy butter and cheeses. Kashi sells some really good cereal bars that don't have milk in them. Check the aisles in your grocery store where all the gluten free stuff is and you'll probably find dairy free stuff as well. I do a lot of frozen vegetables with nothing on them. If I'm making something for my husband and I that has cheese in it - like a casserole - I'll just separate out some ingredients (the meat, veggies, pasta) before I add the cheese. Check out frozen foods as well - I found some non-dairy burritoes, mac and cheese and there's even ice cream. I give my daughter coconut milk yogurt as a substitute. I have the most trouble when we go out to eat as nearly all kids meal choices (except spaghetti - a mess I don't want to deal with while out) contain cheese. So I always make sure I bring food with me for her.

Cottage cheese? I did not know that. I know they make ice creams usually at Meijer you find it that is sooooo awesome.

My whole family including my kids and I are lactose intholerant. There is lactose free milk out there that you can still make eggs and french toast and all of that with. Peanut butter is a no for some people and certain cheeses are too. You just have to test everything out because when having the lactose problem you may find he can still eat certain cheeses.

Lactaid milk is a wonderful thing for kids who are lactose intolerent. you can bake and cook with it, it taste like milk just a little sweeter. we make waffles pancakes, muffins, put it on cereal, use it in cookies, bread. and some of Kraft pre-shredded cheeses have 0 percent lactose in them. look on the back of the packaging on the right hand side at the bottom to get the right ones. and lactaid also makes a cottage cheese too so you can make lasagna.
