Hey I just found out my son has a allergy to cows milk and egg whites! And his favorite things in the world to eat are yogurt, cheese, eggs and pancakes! Can any mom out there give me any for substitues? Is it true I can substitue eggs with applesauce?

The yogurt and cheese are easily replaced soy/rice milk alternatives. The pancakes are just something you will have to look at the box on to make sure it is milk free in the mix, and then use a substitute. Eggs, you can replace with applesauce and bananas or with an egg replacer. I recommend Ener-G. I also recommend getting and reading this book.

It was one of my favorites. Is your child allergic like you said in the OP or lactose intolerant as in the title?  There is a big difference between them.
