Hey everyone! :)

I'm lactose intolerant and I was looking at the supermarkets for any kids food to keep my tummy full while watching cartoons or colouring,something like the squeez drinks (I tried those and I really don't like them) and I realised that there's no many dairy free options.

Does anyone have any advice or have actually found anything? Thanks!

Have you ever tried taking Lactaid? You can get a chewable pill or a small one you can swallow. Then you can have what you want! I also know that the Whole Foods in London has all sorts of dairy free stuff.

 

Good luck!

Good luck in your search. I'd hit up the natural style stores and just ask them if anyone there consumes those products and if they have any favorites. I Myself haven't had any daily in years.

Thank you so much for replying!  

Yes,  I have Lactaid pills but they only work for a couple of hours and I still get an upset stomach unfortunately :(

I didn't know about Whole Foods but I'll go have a look on my day off,  thank you!

That seems like a good idea too,  thanks!  I might try it.

One of my favorite things as a lactose-intolerant little is chocolate almondmilk. Very tasty, no tummyache! Most animal crackers (plain) have no dairy, and those are really good. I like applesauce or babyfood pouches, which can be fruit and veggie based with no dairy. I also eat Uncrustables, the PBJ and turkey roll up ones. I also make DIY lunchables/charcuterie boards with fruit, veggies, pretzels, crackers, etc. Dino or regular nuggies are great to have as a full meal. If you're looking for dairy subtitutes for foods like pizza or mac n cheese, I would try Daiya! They carry it here at my Walmart, and I live in the middle of nowhere. I haven't had bad experiences with the brand. My main tip is to go all out on presentation. Foods don't have to exactly be kiddie foods to be littlespace foods, but if they are in a cute bento box or cut up into fun shapes, then it'll most likely make you little!

Honestly,  thank you so much for your reply.  

I usually get whatever drinks I'm having with oat milk but I haven't tried anything with almond milk.  Maybe I have to look into that and the other brands you mentioned. 

But also,  I hadn't really thought about getting funny and cute food shape cutters,  so that could be a good option.  Awesome idea,  thanks!  :)

Umm i dont know if this will be any help butttt..

I follow a mainly low fodmap diet due to my problems and that includes no milk/lactose.

 

So i mostly drink almond milk or coconot(sometimes) the sweetened version of both tastes soooooo yummy by itself. I use unsweetened when im making for example porridge or cheese sauce for macaroni ^.^

I also add strawberry milkshake powder to it when i feel like having a milkshake.

 

Swedice glace does a very very beautiful and indulgent vanilla ice cream.

 

Alpro dessert comes in caramel chocolate and vanilla flavours. I eat the vanilla ones literally every day they are so yummy. A perfect snack or pudding. Its like a yogurt and its like a custard. The caramel one i like aswell and have occassionally. I havent tried the chocolate one.

 

Try some baking recipes out! Using your special ingredients. My favourite is brownies, gingerbread and pumpkin cake and lemon cupcakes. I like the fun of baking and then i can makethem look good/decorating if i want depending on type of bake. Then i can indulge later when doing other things. (Also the licking of the bowl before i wash it out....mmm!)

 

Some vegan chocolates out there arent so great but some are really good its just trial and error. Soe come in cute shapes too like for xmas or easter. I dont know what the chocolate im eating just now is called but its is yummy. And i had a massive chocolate xmas bauble that i smashed and hadlots of choco buttons inside.

 

Anyways i probably havent helped but i tried. Good luck i hope you find things you are looking for!

im severly lactose intolerant too. honestly i need to stop drinking it, it makes me so miserable after, but i do know about lactaid milk (not the pills, i have to take a lot for it to work) and lactaid ice cream. They are super expensive though so its usually an extra special treat. other then that everyone has good advice on here!
