  • I'd talk to his pediatrician. That's kind of odd. The soy milk doesn't have any lactose, so that has nothing to do with his intolerance.

  • Soy is a common allergen.

    You can get protein from plenty of other sources. Beans, hummus, fish, nuts, and seeds are all very good protein sources. Beans can be mashed and pureed and made into dips for veggies since he has the texture preference. Almond butter on celery, almond butter on pitas with chopped dried fruit = fruit and nut "pizza," Mashed beans and veggies in tortillas

    Have you seen the vegan lunch box website. Google vegan lunch box.
