My DS may be lactose intolerant but I am more and more nervous about giving him soy. I hear about all of these horrible things with the hormones. My brother is a firm believer in soy and has sent me numerous documented studies that it is not dangerous. The reality is he is a grown man and my son is only 2 1/2. My DS LOVES his "milk" so I have to give him something (maybe coconut or almond milk) but if he is totally lactose intolerant he can't have cheese etc and that leaves us with mostly soy products. What are your thoughts??Answer Question

He is lactose intollerant he is going to have to get over loving drinking milk. People that are lactose intollerant can almost always have some milk products each day without problems. With experiment you can figure out how much. My adult son can have a small milk shake and is fine but if he drinks a large he gets miserable.
I have lactose intollerance and milk allergy and at times have to go on a milk free diet and it sucks! There are problems with soy and I only use soy milk on cereal or to bake with. Soy milk works in most baking. None of the other "milks" have worked for me. They aren't milk they are watered down nuts.

Kefir is a great alternative. People with lactose intollerance can drink it, it has several probiotics and the kind with fruit tastes good. It is a yogurt/smoothy type dirink you can get at natural food type grocery stores or large grocery stores. It's $3 for a quart, so it's not expensive. You can even make it at home. I drink it to help with IBS. It comes in flavors like cherry, raspberry, and strawberry and others for the brave like acai.
My 24 mo grandson is allergic to peanuts, eggs, wheat, rice, beef, chicken, and ham. That's what we know from tests yet he is still head to toe eczema. He is not allergic to milk but has never drank any. Kids with lactose intollerance or allergies have to get over they can't eat certain things. Lactose intollerance gets worse as you get older, it doesn't go away.

He can get protein from eggs and a variety of meat. It's good to eat a variety of meats because each meat has different B vitamins. Of course hamburger, hot dogs, lunch meat, chicken nuggets, and processed meats are high in fats and or have chemicals in them and are the junk food of meats.
Here is a link for kefir and one for the brand I drink thats yummy!
