Our strategy (can't speak for D'smom, only us) has been to allow whatever doesn't bother DD.

That is, if she can TOLERATE her nose being a little runny or knowing that her lips are going to be itchy and puffy for a day or two... and she really WANTS to eat a slice of cheese anyway...

<shrug> we allow it.

Her tolerance seems to be a 24-48 hour 'allowance' kind of thing, though, at this point.

So there's probably no way that she could drink milk. The last time she tried yogurt, even, she started sneezing and her lips puffed up pretty badly-- the top one even split a little on her. She decided that four bites of yogurt just wasn't worth it...

Weirdly, though? She tolerates small amounts of strawberry Kefir. As others note-- quite hit and miss.

Because she's ten and has a lifetime of experience with allergic reactions from mild OAS all the way to grade IV anaphylaxis, we let her sort of dictate what is "okay" and what isn't. I just ask/remind her when I can see that her lips/eczema looks to be badly flared.

She loves pizza and cheese so much that she'll push the envelope with those. Not so much with ice cream or cookies or butter.

Ours depends on the symptom(s) and what ds wants to do and visually how he seems. He usually does not want to continue eating something once he feels symptoms (usually an itchy or hurting throat). I don't push him even though the symptoms appear mild. The good news is symptoms have never progressed past this.

I sometimes wonder about the psychological component too....but some foods he's fine with and others he's not, so who knows. I do want him to trust his instincts since he's proven to be anaphylactic to milk in uncooked form, so this is how we approach it.

That is really the hard part, as they get older and you want them to pay attention to symptoms, especially as they are on their own more and take more responsibility. Yet on the baked milk, if she has mild symptoms we pretty much ignore them, which is what the food allergy specialist at UCLA said to do. It is just hard to know how much symptoms is too much.



We've just joined the baked milk club too.  Yippee!  It is making for some confusing grocery trips now.  He can tolerate well-cooked, thin pancakes, so I can make something quicker than a full baking session at home.  Not everyone can use this option though.

Our list so far -
Goldfish crackers are by far his favorite.  I'm making it a practice right now to only buy the colored ones since none of them are flavor blasted.  DS understands he can only have Goldfish that I approve, and this is a simple way for others to make sure he has ones that are parent approved.

Chips Ahoy original cookies - the milk content is pretty low on these.  I never realized those chocolate chips weren't milk chocolate until now.

We haven't bought any, but I know from the past that one of the Tyson chicken nugget packages has milk since we always avoided that one before. 

Van de Kamp's has a new fish fillet option that has milk in the coating.  I think it was an 8 pack, 90 calorie per fillet.  DS liked them.

DS is sick at the moment, but Eggo waffles are next on our list to try.  They'd be great since DS could grab them himself.

I'm also thinking of maybe the Grands biscuits or cinnamon rolls as an occasional treat.  I sent a question to Pillsbury to ask if the whey in the rolls is in the rolls or the icing.

Are there any cereals that might fit the list?


My daughter is doing the baked milk as well.  She eats goldfish and cheezits at home, but I never send anything to school that looks like it has milk in it.

She eats buttermilk bread fine - it is a local brand.

Mainly I cook lots of muffins and freeze them.  This website has a lot of recipes.  I often add extra milk to the batter and sometimes stir in powdered milk for extra milk protein:

Most of the recipes are really easy - just mix all the ingredients together and bake.

I am currently getting up the courage to try her with pancakes - I am sure the first ones I give her will be very thin and very well cooked!
