My little grandson, who has severe dairy allergies, has a Soy Cheese - it is actually quite nice. He has Soy Ice Cream, and that is quite nice, too (not that I eat much of it.)

I am diary food intolerant, altho' I can tolerate tiny amounts of cow's milk, and can eat hard, tasty cheddar cheese, as well as some low-fat yoghurt, without problems.

Where it calls for dairy in your menu, just substitute - it's easy enough, but the calories may be a bit different. Also, check that your substitutes are a good source of protein and calcium.

We don't offer lactose-free meal plans. Here's why:

Sorry about that!

Hey sparkfriends,

I was just exploring the meal planning option, thinking of ways to simplify when life gets hectic. I notice there's no lactose-free option on the meal plans. Am I missing something? I find there's so much lowfat cheese in the plans that I can't really use them. The only cheese I can eat is goat cheese, and that's very hard to find in lowfat versions (though it is naturally lower in fat that cow's milk cheese).

thanks in advance!
