    Default Dairy free families

    Are there any other families who are entirely dairy-free? Do you use any replacement milks, like soy, nut etc? Or just cut it out altogether? Are you concerned about the kids being low in calcium? Thanks in advance.

    I am not dairy free; I looove dairy!
    But my DD is dairy free. She hates all alternative milks. And she doesn't eat leafy greens either. So I give her a calcium supplement.

    Vegetables are a great source of calcium! We're not completely dairy free (still have occasional cheese and yogurt) but no, I'm not concerned at all as long as everyone eats plenty of vegies.

    I'm dairy free and i'm in the process of weaning the kids off it as well. I'm definitely not concerned about calcium intake, it's in so many other foods. I use soy, rice or almond milk when i have a coffee, make a cake or the likes... but it's not a regular thing.
