Allergies

Alternatives to Milk

09/11/2011

Question:

My son, who just turned one, is allergic to dairy. I want to make sure he is getting enough calcium and vitamin D, but am unsure how to include these in his diet without causing a severe allergic reaction. what are other sources of calcium and vitamin D? Also, I`ve heard good and bad things about soy milk, is it safe to give to my son? And finally, does calcium enriched drinks, like orange juice and rice milk, have dairy in them? thank you
