Hi -

I'm new to the whole allergy thing (DS is 15 months old & allergic to milk & eggs). As he's getting older I'm starting to appreciate how limiting it is and how lovely it is when he can have an off-the-shelf item that everyone else is having. So, I thought I would start a thread where we could list surprise finds we've came across (or in my case, that MN have pointed me towards!).

My (very short) list:
- shop bought puff pastry (read this in a thread the other day. A revelation! And just in time for my nephew's birthday party!)
- jammie dodgers (ditto!)
- Nairns Dark Choc Chip biscuits (made in factory handling milk)
- Sacla tomato & garlic stir in sauce
- Sacla Char-Grilled Aubergine Pesto
- Cauldron aduki bean kiev (salty though!)

Anyone like to share their finds?

tesco ciabatta roll

tesco white crusty rolls

I believe both are dairy free?

I'm new to the subject as only eliminated dairy from my diet a week ago, to see if it helps breastfed DD who is 3 weeks old.

Thanks for the tip about the Auvergne pesto (lovely!), bourbon creams and others smile

Lovely to see this thread still going! Seems like forever since i started it. DS has now outgrown his CMPA so haven't checked back for a while. Has someone already posted about the fizzy pop cake? Buy a pack of Betty Crocker (or equivalent) cake mix an replace the wet ingredients (including egg) with a can of fizzy pop eg cola, ginger ale. smile

I am intrigued about the co op dough balls I am going to check them out as dd would love them.

Fizzy pop cake? Wow that sounds good!
Do you use diet fizzy or regular fizzy?

I think both is fine but I used full fat!

Hi Everyone - for anyone wishing to join me in making a dairy and egg free food list on Facebook.

There is a fabulous CMPA support group on FB Danielle with lots of lists of dairy free foods. Worth joining for!

Mr Kipling's pack of 6 SHOCK AND ORANGE SLICES. They are in the Halloween section of supermarkets and are milk free! smile my dd (6) loves them. So nice to be able to buy something off the shelves and not have to worry!

my latest egg and dairy free discovery is waitrose essential iced fingers. no more baking ahead of parties so she can have a treat like other kids but instead iced fingers every time

I've made the fizzy pop cake several times it's yum smile
my 8 month old is dairy free has and recently been told to go soya free too, he is breastfed so I have been dairy free since he was about 2 weeks old and now have to be soya free too, I read the whole of this thread last night when DS decided sleep wasn't an option from 2 til 4 yaaaawwwwwn!!

Morrisons do an after 8 style choc that's dairy
and egg free & Sainsburys do an orange version. Not sure if these are soya free tho as only have been soya free since Wednesday

I've been very glad to find this thread. It's been a while since I've been on the board as ds2 grew out of his milk/soy allergies, but ds3 is now also having problems with cmp (not sure about soy yet).

It seems that in the last 4 years a fair few things are now suitable to eat that weren't before (yay!)

I will add to this thread that jus-rol have added cinnamon whirls to their range, along with the croissants and pains au chocolat. They don't have egg or milk in the ingredients but both are listed as may contains. There is soy throughout the ingredients list unfortunately so I may use them when I trial soy in a few weeks.

Hi everyone, I've just discovered this discussion and am v excited to find out about coop dairy free doughnuts!
I've not been able to eat anything containing cows milk for over 10 years so have amassed a list of things I can have! Not sure about baby yet will find out when it's born!

I can add the following to the list that I don't think have been mentioned above:
Sainsburys own brand Jaffa cakes

You can make your own cheesecake with tofutti vegan cream cheese, a little sugar and a biscuit base with dairy free marg and hobnobs - a bit pricey so only for special occasions but v tasty with raspberries and maple syrup!

The best dairy free chocolate spread is by Plamil (I've tried all types!)

I also love Dark Mountain bar from M&S (like toblerone)

They are free but hobnobs say something about may contain milk/soya either that it made in a factory that handles milk.
Please everyone be careful why you give to your kids with milk allergies or any allergy as I have done a lot of research recently an came to find milk can be life threatening and there have been many kids/babies/adults die from it.
P.s my daughter has a milk/soya/dairy/even almond and coconut milk allergy coming across this thread I had no idea that so many kids suffer from this allergy tbh I didn't even know any allergy expect nut allergies existed until my baby was born. Such a scary world.
Keep your heads held high we can protect our little ones and they will have a great life smile Xx

Asda brownie mini bites are dairy free!!!!! (Sorry they contain egg and say 'not suitable for milk allergy sufferers' but I ignore this if milk etc not in ingredients).
