    They have a product over there called Lactaid which are tablets you can take before dairy to prevent the usual side effects...they also make lactaid milk too which is like our lactose free milk. Do try the soy milk though as it tastes a lot better than ours!

    I use oat milk - it's much more like cow's milk and worth a try.

    Eve is lactose intolerant and Florida is absolutely brilliant for buying fresh lactose free milk:thumbsup2

    You get all the fat levels and more :)

    Walmart and Publix sell it in abundance though you might struggle to find it in the more 'tourist' type supermarkets on I-Drive.

    Eve seems to think we couldn't buy it from Target but I'm not too sure on that one :flower3:

    Not sure how the Pure / Vitalite would 'travel' :confused3

    Spreads aren't something we've ever looked at to be honest but I'd imagine there would be lactose free ones in the shops :)

    Check out www.walmart.com - I found ice cream and cottage cheese in the Lactose free search :thumbsup2

    I have had LOADS of food intolerances and allergies and I honestly feel that America is the best place for catering for all sorts of food allergies. You can get lactose free milk in most places but I find to get all allergy friendly foods Whole Foods is the best place. There is a big one now in Orlando. You can get Lactose free everything, soy cheese, cream, yogurt ...

    Here is the link for directions etc,

    Just a heads up that we've found it relatively easy to buy Lactose free milk in Italy, the Canary Islands and Spain :thumbsup2

    You're best looking in the bigger supermarkets :)

    Also, if you want to find out about what foods will be suitable for her intolerance while you are at the Disney parks, then email;

    brenda.bennett@disney.com

    telling her that your daughter has lactose intolerance. She will send you a list of where you can get soy icecream, lactose free cheese pizza etc inside the parks and also if you are dining at any of the restaurants, the chef might be able to make special meals for her if you let them know in advance :thumbsup2. Check out the DISabilities board for more advice re food allergies whilst at disney and allergy free dining reviews. Have a great time at WDW :goodvibes.
