just a thought...my son has recently (Nov/05)been diagnosed allergic to dairy. I read everything now...My older son gets migranes from certain foods....feeding this family is a nightmare, but i manage. lol My thought was this...if you dont read the labels you might not even know..milk ingredients are in schneider's pepperretes but not piller's...certain sausage meat contains milk ingredients..."red hots" schneider's hotdogs contain milk ingredients...gummy bears may contain milk!....most store bought bread has some form of milk init or another, buns too....not all chocolate is dairy based...soy milk does not make good instant pudding by the way...lol...bdays suck - noo ice cream....no more lasagna(so we thought)...finally found milk aternative based cheeses....they actually taste good! ALternative medical treatment is expensive! ANy ideas for chip dip or veg dip that isnt dairy would be helpful....he hates chick peas (no hummus plz).
