  • His favorite fruit. My LO's love fruit more than cake any day. Also you could bring him a fruit Popsicle.

  • You can always make cupcakes from a cake mix--just use soy or rice milk, or lactose-free milk for the cupcakes.

  • If he is lactose intolerant then he should be able to eat food that is made with milk, like cake. Most lactose intolerant people do fine with most dairy in moderation as long as they don't drink milk.

    This company makes cake mixes, cookie mixes, frostings etc...

    I highly recommend the chocolate chip cookie mix. We use dairy free butter with it.

    Also Pilsbury makes some frostings without dairy ( the ones that come with sprinkles) and also they have dairy free cake mixes.

    Those are some options to look for treats. If you have a whole foods near you, you could get some dairy free icecream, cookies, snacks etc...too.

  • If he is only lactose intolerant, he should be able to eat a small piece of cake and ice cream. I am lactose intolerant and still eat dairy on occasion, it doesn't always bother me.

  • bring him a pie or something he loves to eat. i know when i was younger my mom took time to make sure i had something for when b-days in are family came around. my pie was allway fruity and you know what my brothers would eat mine instead of the cake. so if you do dring something for him maybe bring a lill more.

  • Instead of animal milk, use a plant milk in your cupcakes. Buy or make ice cream from plant milk or tofu.
