Did you know that 2-3% of babies have an allergy to milk or Cows Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA)? It’s the most common nutritional issue that babies have and it’s on the rise. Cutting dairy out of your baby’s diet (or yours if you are breastfeeding) is how to manage the symptoms of the allergy but there are other foods you need to have to replace the critical nutrients that babies and toddlers need.
Weaning is an exciting time for parents (and for baby too!) but sadly when your baby has a food allergy it’s not always as smooth-sailing as you’d originally hoped. In this article Annabel Karmel shares with us some of her favourite dairy free weaning recipes.
This is a link to my guest blog for Annabel Karmel on a dairy free weaning diet for babies with cows milk protein allergy.
Cows milk protein allergy is one of the most common allergies in babies. If your baby has been diagnosed with this or if it has been suspected you will need to follow a dairy free weaning diet under the supervision of a dietitian.
