Re: Anyone have a child with food allergies?

My kids all were/ are allergic to dairy as babies, the youngest is still allergic and still nursing so I have been dairy free for over 13 months now. I substitute soy or goat milk (the protiens are different so goat milk products don't cause a reaction) it is difficult until you get in the habit of reading labels religously. Make sure you educate yourself on all the different names for milk derivatives, they are in a LOT of places you wouldn't expect. I have found it helpful occasionally to e-mail a manufacturer of a product if I have any questions about ingredients.

This website might be helpful for you http://kidswithfoodallergies.org/index.php
