  1. Broccoli littles are made in a plant that also processes milk, not guaranteed dairy free in that case. Important if the diet is not just a lifestyle choice but an actual allergy.

  2. I have a baby who is still struggling with a dairy intolerance and moving onto solids has been difficult. I just found your website and have to say thank you so much. So many awesome ideas and resources here! Answer to my prayers…..

    My 9 year old son has been having GI issues for years and gone through many tests after his last apt we were instructed to try a dairy free diet for 30 days then repeat his labs . I was worried about what to feed an always hungry kid when every label seemed to list milk. Thanks to this great list I know have a ton of snack ideas.
    Thank you 🙏

  4. My major concern with an item on this list, is how can you have an oreo without creme? And last time I knew, creme was made from milk.

      I’m not sure where you’re based out of, but Oreo cookies here are actually milk free! You can find the full list of ingredients on their website here: https://www.oreo.com/oreo-cookie
