Milk

(for milkshake, or flavoured milk see 'F')

There are several nice tasting "milk alternatives" on the market, sold in most supermarkets & health food shops.  These include: - soya milk, oat milk, rice milk, coconut milk, almond milk, hazelnut milk & hemp milk.  Opt for the Calcium Enriched variations of each.

  • Koko Dairy Free - coconut milk
  • Oatly - oat milk
  • Rice Dream - rice milk, almond milk, oat milk
  • Alpro - soya milk, almond milk, rice milk, Alpro 1+ soya milk with extra nutrients for toddlers.
  • Provamel - rice milk, almond milk, soya milk.
  • Good Hemp - hemp milk

 

N.B - Lactofree Milk is NOT suitable for milk allergy sufferers. It has no lactose so may be suitable for those who are lactose intolerant, but still contains cow's milk protein so is not suitable for those with CMPA/I.

a2 milk is NOT suitable for CMPA/I sufferers. It is free from casein but still contains whey protein, plus other milk proteins.
Rice Milk is NOT suitable as a milk drink for children under 4.5yrs due to levels of inorganic arsenic which are too high for their small bodies.

Tip!  Mix milk's, e.g. half & half, for a better taste - rice milk (sweet watery milk) mixed with oat milk (relatively “creamy” less sweet milk) is much more pleasant than either on their own.

The information on this page was correct at the time of publishing, but the change of ingredients is beyond our control, so please ALWAYS study the ingredients list before you buy or use any products you have found on this site.

Allergy Advice Labelling.

Allergy advice labels such as "May contain traces" or "Made in a factory that handles" or "not suitable for **** allergy sufferers" are not legal requirements, therefore not governed by any external body.

This means that manufactures are free to put whatever information they choose on the packet.
In some cases the information is very helpful when choosing a product, but unfortunately in others it is misleading or unnecessary.

It is usually possible to call the manufactures for clarification of ambiguous allergen advice, for example after contacting Moo Free they told us that they state "may contain traces of soya" on their chocolates due to the fact one of the products they use in the manufacturing process states "may contain traces of soya." However the Moo Free factory is free from soya products, so any trace amounts would be infinitesimal.

 Depending on the sensitivity and type of allergy your child has you may or may not be able to ignore these warnings. Your Paediatrician or dietician will be able to advise you about this.

**For the information on this site we have only concentrated on the actual ingredients lists on the labels, if you are following advice to avoid all traces please check the individual products for the manufactures warnings.**
