Surprise dairy & egg free finds - join me in making a list?

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?

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).

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

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)

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

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!

Is the fizzy pop cake any good?

abigboydidit Wed 11-Sep-13 14:43:03

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

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

abigboydidit Wed 04-Sep-13 21:42:51

I think both is fine but I used full fat!

MumToKandD Wed 04-Sep-13 20:55:16

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

harverina Tue 03-Sep-13 18:44:35

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

abigboydidit Tue 03-Sep-13 12:41:57

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

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

Cupcakes that's fab, thanks so much for that link. Going to have a look now and see if there is anything we can buy!

Awesome thread. My 6m DS has had a mild reaction to both dairy and eggs (I think, it was a reaction to mayo). He's not eating much yet but I'm already surprised how limiting it is when eating out.

Shanelle Get thee back to the Nov 12 thread! There are at least, what 8-9 of us dealing with the same issues!

Mine is CMPI (as well as bastarding reflux!).

izzybizzybuzzybees Wed 19-Jun-13 22:32:55

Great thread find pass! I didn't realise P was egg allergic too!

Passmethecrisps Wed 19-Jun-13 10:21:53

Shameless bump!

Was just about to start my own thread. I have a 7 month old with dairy intolerance and egg allergy. Weaning is desperately slow as she point blank refuses purée. HV has been singularly unhelpful sadly.

I will print this and add anything I come up with
