WHAT BEVERAGES DO YOU RECOMMEND TO YOUNG PATIENTS WITH DAIRY ALLERGIES OR LACTOSE INTOLERANCE?

There are so many great vegan options now. I use low-calorie almond milk for cereal. Oat milk for coffee—it makes the best foamed milk for fancy coffee drinks. All of the nut milks work well with baking. It’s all about flavor! As a beverage, I also recommend only water between meals and nondairy milk type products or the occasional juice with a meal. I also recommend a straw for any nonwater beverage or travel cup to decrease stain and exposure to sugars.

Almond milk. Tastes pretty good and is healthy.

Unsweetened vanilla flax milk is really tasty. A version with extra protein is also available if that is a concern in the patient’s diet.
