For the next 5 days my daughter has to eliminate all milk in her diet to test for both lactose and milk intolerance. Most products that contain nuts have a may contain label but how do I check for milk products? Does it actually say milk on the ingredient label or can it be named something else. I know sugar has many names so I don't want to buy a product thinking it contains no milk and mess up the results. Any help or suggestion on what to buy will be appreciated. She is a picky eater so I just don't know what to feed her this week. I am pretty sure she is intolerant so this may become a long term issue.

thank you so much. My daughter has been dreading this week as most of her favorite foods have margarine or butter added to them such as baked potatoes and corn. I don't want her to feel different because of a possible allergy

Earth Balance has some fairly good dairy free margarine choices. I buy it from the local health food store.

Allergies aren't fun at all for kids. Kids just want to be like everyone else. Thankfully there are so many more options these days than there used to be.

My husband grew up in the 60's and 70's and he remembers being the only kid he knew with allergies. Growing up with allergies during that time wasn't easy and foods weren't labeled as well as they are today.

Good luck!!!

We use Fleischmann's Lactose free (with salt). It can be hard to find, the salt free version is carried at Loblaws but we find the salted version at Metro.
