Hi, would avoid soya too as sometimes it has same effect. I thoroughly recommend alpro almond milk for in tea and on cereal - actually nice tasting!
I also have been eating lots of varieties of soreen and mr Kipling apple and blackberry pies...

I would avoid lactose free products as I think some still have cows milk protein in them (CMP).
Pure do a decent sunflower spread (Vitalite is dairy free too).
Not found a decent cheese replacement.
We use oat milk which is fine.
Most makes of chocolate bourbon biccies are dairy free (check though) as are some jaffa cakes if you want a treat fix.

I raised both my DCs on a vegan diet with no problems, you can make or buy a dairy free substitute for practically everything.
There's lots of useful tips on Vegan Village
Although it can be a worthy smile

Lacto-free won't help as it's the proteins in cow's milk that usually produce the allergy/intolerance, not lactose. And many people who are allergic to cow's milk proteins react to soya proteins as well, hence the advice to avoid soya on a dairy-free diet.

Dairy-free means reading ingredients really closely, I'm afraid - milk and whey proteins are in soooo many things.
