Help, I am a picky eater and I think my son is developing a milk protien allergy

I am not a big fan of fruits and vegetables, fruits are limited to strawberries, apples and the occasional banana, veggies a little bit more. Almost everything I eat seems to have some form of dairy in it. I don't drink milk, only use it in my cereal and when I have oreos but cheese and cream of chicken tend to find its way into a lot of my food choices. I think my son may be developing a milk protien allergy, he throws up his food, it varies in how much and not all the time but enough that it is concerning me. His poops vary from a mustard yellow to a pea green color which my doctor said is fine as long as it is not mucusy (sp) or bloody. He isn't fussy but I just don't know what to eat if he becomes allergic to dairy in my diet. Both of my sisters sons had it and my twin sister and I both did too as babies, and suggestions

switch to a lactose free milk (soy, almond), read labels if it says 'milk' don't get it, you may need to broaden your horizons to get your son to try new things. As for cheese, most of the stores (at least the ones around here) have lactose free choices (soy, almond, or rice cheeses).
