The hardest thing about avoiding milk protein is that they're added in to so many foods! Surprisingly there are many dairy and other allergen free foods to be found amongst the "ordinary food" in the supermarket, as well as some excellent alternatives for things like cheese, chocolate and ice-cream, some of which are listed on our Free From Foods page.
For every aspect of managing CMPA, and Multiple Food Allergies.
CMPA Support are currently raising funds to create a more comprehensive website, to allow a search function to our "Free From" Food page. We also would like to develop a telephone support line, for support and advice from a parent who understands and can offer advice & compassion for your situation. CMPA Support are also thinking of new ways we can support you with things like a new YouTube channel and Instagram account where we can share visual recipes and information.
Please follow our campaigns on Facebook and Twitter. We endeavour to keep you up-to-date with all the latest news on allergy related topics including the newest "Free From" alternatives to everyday foods such as cheese and chocolate!
CMPA Support currently have a range of Facebook Support Groups for parent-to-parent support and advice;
Cows Milk Protein Allergy Support (@CMPAsupport) - General Group
CMPA Support for Breast Feeding
CMPA Support for Weaning

We also have Regional Groups for sharing local food finds, arranging meet ups with other like-minded parents/carers, sharing details of events and meetings within your region, etc. Links to these groups can be found on the Resources page.
