Hi ya'll!

Hi, I am new and have not checked out this site yet.
I have 3 children ages 4,7, and 13 and my 7 yo has dairy sensitivities - it makes his nose run and gives him a tummy ache. We just figured this out last Nov., and I am still learning to cook w/out dairy. It is worth it because he no longer has to be on allergy medicine, but it is still difficult for me since my younger two children are picky eaters.
I love to cook and hope to find some good recipees here, although I rarely actuall follow a recipee the way it is written - I usually substitute a lot and use recipees as general guidelines.
In Christ, Dana

Welcome to DC! I'm sure there will be someone to help you adjust some recipes for your son...or you can help them.

Since you mentioned your son's milk sensativity ... you might want to check out our Health, Nutrition and Special Diets Forum.

Hi Dana,
Welcome to DC. My son had milk allergies when he was younger but his gave him a runny nose. He's since outgrown it.
You came to the right place for help with recipes!
