Alprosoya products can be bought at regular supermarkets now, you can get yoghurts, milk, desserts and stuff

I never had cheese so cant say if its any good, but holland and barrats (and other health food shops) sell vegan cheese

Holland and barrats has good stuff like carob and stuff, with kids ranges as well

Depending on how bad the allergy is, you need to check food really carefully. Stuff that you dont think has lactose in does (e.g. crisps). I had lactose intollerance really bad when I was younger and have pretty much grown out of it now. It is a lot easier now though with more products and stuff.

I've been looking through all the supermarkets as have recently put my son on the gf/cf diet which means basically cutting out absolutely everything he currently eats and trying to replace it with specialist food he can eat, and out of all the supermarkets, I've found Sainsburys free from range the best if you're strugling to find anything suitable that your friends little boy is allowed. They seem to have more items available than the others.

Just be careful though, just because it says free from on the box, doesn't automatically mean it's ok for the specific diet you're on about, but it's a good starting place.

Little unfair to criticise the hospital for not providing info on suppliers. NHS staff should not suggest commercial products (except when there is only one available). Even dieticians don't suggest brands only food types. Contact the hospital again, try and speak or get appt with a dietician for further specific advice

Tesco used to supply a list of dairy free products that was really halpful - then you can just check those labels individually to make sure - some surprising products were dairy free such as their cheapest ranges etc - worth ringing to check if they still do it!

Vegan cheese is pretty gross, try Holland & Barratt for a selection - Cheezly Mozarella was the best & 'melts' (sort of!) for pizza. There is a spreadable tofu based 'cheese' called Tofutti which is OK as well.

As far as chocolate, the best dairy free I found was the Kinnerton free from as it is not too high on the cocoa solids, so not too bitter for little children. They sell bars of it, and also make it into Easter eggs at Easter see - http://www.kinnerton.com/nutsafety/allergyfree.html.
There was dark chocolate money (red wrapper) at Thorntons this year as well - great for stockings!

Try vegan websites for other products & good luck!

Hi,

My wife is lactose intollerent, which may not be as bad as the situation you describe, but she has found the following...

soya milk has a very distinctive taste, she found rice milk to be better for cereals / drinks.
she is also a great lover of cheese, even though it has never agreed with her. She has found she has a lot less problems with goats/ewes milk cheese as they have a different composition.

this might be worth a try to see the reaction as it would open up other more normal products (goats milk, goats butter etc) which are usually avaliable in the bigger supermarkets.

sorry dont mean to criticise, I understand information is limited and they do have to becarefull not to seem to sell a product, she has seen the dietician who went through food groups etc and gave her websites to visit but they where all wholesale ones with crazy delivery prices and high order limits, like we have said ok the kid carnt have lactose so she needs to do something about it but he is a growing kid and he needs the calcum and other nutrients so you really would have thought you would get more help with finding suitable products, afterall the doctors would have a few things to say if he was under weight and in poor health. and i wont go into the etrxa cost of the stuff :x I / We know its not the staff its the blinking government red tape as normal;-)

Hi,

the best lactose free products (which arent soya based) are by LACTOFREE. They do a full fat milk and a semi skimmed milk (fresh and long life) and they also do yoghurts and have just launched a cheese (but i've yet to track this down yet!).

LACTOFREE is available in most large supermarkets such as sainsburys/morrisons/waitrose.

holland and barratt do 'dairy free' chocolate which i'm sure kids would love. either that or he could have plain chocolate (just check it doesnt contain milk because some plain chocolates do).

hope this helps
