    icon_confused.gif i am so confused i dont even know where to start. i hope that someone in here may be able to point me in the right direction. My daughter is having some pretty cronic GI problems. She's been having episodes of cronic explosive and sometimes foamy diareah and vomittimg up food that isnt even getting fully digested. Theses episodes last 2 to 3 weeks, then shes ok for a week or 2, then it comes back. We tried switching to soy, and her stomach cannot handle it- she gets even worse diareah. The GI specialist that i took her to on friday told us to take her entirely off of dairy, sugar, and juice for a few months, then slowly reinterduce thaem till we find out what is causing the problems...this may not seem too hard for most, but my daughter is 2! her favorite foods have always been cheese and cookies. i am having a lot of trouble trying to find foods that i can give her that dont taste like cardboard. Anyone ever heard of anything like this or know where i can start? i hate having to tell my hungry 2 yr. old she cant have sooo many of the things she loves.

    You definitely have a challenge ahead of you. I cannot speak from personal experience, as I've never had to do that type of exclusion diet for any reason, but it is not hard to imagine just how this might affect your whole routine.

    I did want to point out that the sifter will help you find recipes that are free of lactose/dairy but then you'll have to use Filter by Ingredient to eliminate sugar and juice. (Juice I assume was included because it is high in sugar, whether natural or added).

    I want to say that someone here had commented on a good tasting non-dairy cheese. I have made coconut kefir, which can be strained to make a yogurt and I've seen coconut yogurt at the market.You could add some applesauce or other pure pureed fruit to sweeten it up a little bit, but coconut kefir is not quite as tangy as is yogurt.

    If you have a Whole Foods near you, it would be worth exploring to at least identify some potential products. Unfortunately a lot of stuff will have some type of added sugar, even if it's not granulated but agave or rice syrup or something like that.

    Does your doctor have a nutritionist on staff? That person might be able to provide you with some good ideas of what might be good alternatives for you.

    Ok it was in the Vegetarian forum - recommendation for a nondairy cheese:

    Daiya cheese comes closet to real cheese for me, but there is nutritional yeast which isn't like Brewer's yeast or the bread yeast. It has a nice cheesy flavor for things like mac and cheese. You can use Daiya on pizza and in sandwiches. The other cheese is Follow Your Heart cheese and that's a good substitute as well.

    If lactose intolerance ends up being the problem, you might want to look into making your own coconut kefir - I've posted a recipe, and you do save money by making your own, Coconut Milk Kefir
    .and there are other non-milk kefirs and yogurts, I've just not made any.

    I sat through a taste testing of non-dairy milks and some tasted better than others, so this is something you will just have to experiment with. The vanilla almond breeze is quite good with cold cereal or used instead of milk for cooked oatmeal (I don't like oatmeal cooked with water).
