The Master List of Dairy-Free
and Soy-Free Foods

It's never fun to have to watch what you eat.

It's also not fun to have to do it when you've been eating without caution the majority of your child and adult life.  In my case, when my first baby developed intolerances to dairy, soy and eggs, I made the decision to figure out how we could move forward with breastfeeding while keeping her tummy happy. 


II quickly realized is that it wasn't easy to figure out how to make this change in my diet overnight. I spent hours and hours searching through grocery stores, facebook groups, blogs and talking to friends who had dealt with the same issue.

I couldn't find a single master list to start from, so I thought I would pay it forward and combine everything I've learned into one single post for anyone else facing these dietary issues. Hope this helps and hang in there! 

 

STARTING OUT IS THE HARDEST

You used to know what you ate everyday, but now everything is different. Trying to figure out which foods contain dairy, soy, etc can be a real pain. Especially when you're an exhausted mamma trying to get some sleep.

I hope you find some rest in finding this resource. Everything below is also linked to Amazon so you can see the packaging/read more before you set out to go find them in your local store. Or even better, just add to cart and get it all delivered to your door. 

Once you get going, you'll get a feel for which brands work for you and it will make grocery shopping a lot simpler.

4 TIPS FOR SHOPPING WITH ALLERGIES OR INTOLERANCES 

Always double-check. The foods listed below are dairy & soy free as ingredients, but may contain trace elements via shared equipment. Reach out to the manufacturers and be sure and always double-check the packaging itself if baby’s allergy is severe to double-check! Ingredients may change and as with everything, YMMV.

Search online, not just in-store. We all know how busy life can get and if you struggle to leave the house, you can order them in a single click for one less thing to do. 

Don't be scared of by large quantities. Some of these items come in packs of 6, 8, 12 or more. If you do some quick math, you'll often find the cost per item is the same or less than traditional grocery stores, but includes free delivery to your door. #win!

Make sure and read BOTH of the labels Sometimes the item's contents are listed in the INGREDIENTS section, and sometimes it is in the CONTAIN section. Make sure and read both if your child is severely allergic to dairy or soy.

A NOTE ON TRACE INGREDIENTS

Depending on the severity of your allergy or intolerance, it may be necessary to avoid items that are processed on shared equipment.

In my case, my baby was fine when I ate items that had trace amounts of allergens, but not when I ate items with  dairy, soy, or egg as an actual listed ingredient.

So even if it's not listen, it's always important to double check the label for the fine print if you are dealing with a severe allergy. 

In the list below, I've noted most of the items with 
*Trace to give you a heads up to look closer. 

Veggies are soy and dairy free!

Its also easy to forget that fruits and veggies are all dairy & soy-free!
