  How it all started...  

As a first time Mum of a child who was (and still is) intolerant to dairy products, I wanted to create a website to provide solutions to, and suggestions, for dealing with the challenges I and my family faced nine years ago. Some problems are still encountered, but we now find them easier to deal with, because of this experience.

There was information available but none in a user-friendly format. There were huge lists of supermarket products which were dairy free, but no simple lists telling me how I could throw together some party food which looked child-friendly and appetising, or which family restaurants offered good service for children with dairy free diets. I’ve had to be inventive over the years - I want to share these ideas and hear about yours.

In my experience, most hotels and restaurants pay lip-service to special dietary requirements. I would telephone in advance explaining the situation, email and write but on arrival would be greeted with the usual response: we have lots of guests who are intolerant to gluten. If we were lucky (and this usually involved a member of staff nipping out to the supermarket) a tub of Pure and some soya milk was provided.

Enough of the negatives of dealing with a dairy-free diet! This is where I want to highlight all the good service we’ve found, let you know about some of the party food I’ve experimented with (and you don’t need to love baking to try these) and generally share my tips for allowing your child to feel that they can go to the same places as their friends to eat out.

 
The aim behind DairyFree.me


As you may of read above I feel very strongly that there is a shortage of information and awareness for people who suffer from dairy allergies or intolerances. This website is not just for those people who are allergic to dairy products but also for people who need to lower their cholesterol by cutting out or cutting down on their intake of dairy foods.


Post a message on the DairyFree.me discussion Board
The reason for the discussion board is, so that you can share ideas, solve problems, discuss issues you may have with like minded people. It maybe a case of wanting to know what restaurants are dairy free friendly in your local town or you may feel your child is allergic to dairy and want to ask someone who has been in the same situation as you. It's also a place where you can share recipe ideas or express an opinion to a subject close to your heart. View Discussion Board

Keep visiting the DairyFree.me website
It's my aim to keep this website fresh and as informative as I can. So often I go onto websites that are never or rarely updated which leaves me uninspired and turned -off. My aim is to update the website on a weekly basis by adding recipes, discussing ideas, taking a look at dairy free books and products on the supermarket shelves and sharing my findings with you.

More importantly The DairyFree.me website is not just my views/reviews it's about your views/reviews. I want you to add to this website by posting your recipes, giving your reviews on a book you've read good or bad. It's about sharing opinions, fears or any eureka moments you may of had.

On the website I've expressed my opinions on the benefits of a dairy free diet, explained any 'jargon' terminology you may of heard but didn't understand fully and the symptoms associated with milk allergies as well as eating out and great dairy free party food ideas. I'd like you to put over your story by featuring it on this website under the 'Your Say' link. By having lots of people featuring their experiences it gives the whole website more credibility and interest to others reading it.


Share your recipes or videos by adding them to our website
DairyFree.me want your recipes, either written and posted on the 'Recipe' section of the website, or by emailing me your video files so that I can publish them on this website. This is a great way to spread dairy free food awareness around the world.

Thanks for taking time to visit the DairyFree.me website
