Tasty alternatives for your kid who is allergic to milk

Having a little one that is allergic to milk is no laughing matter. But relax. Just because your child has a milk allergy, does not mean he/she cannot still enjoy all the flavors of food.

The key to preventing an allergic reaction is to stay away from milk. However, this may be easier said than done. For example, keeping a little one away from ice cream or pizza might be next to impossible. (Especially if he/she has not had their nap.)

But it is ok. Your little one can still enjoy that creamy, milk taste without the dangers of an allergic reaction. The key is avoidance. And luckily in this day and age, there are milk substitutes.

Here is a list of milk substitutes that you can use instead of cow’s (or goat’s) milk products.
