My DD (aged 9 months) has just been diagnosed with dairy and egg allergies. She is just moving past the pureed foods stage and I am struggling to know what to cook for her. I want to introduce her to a wide variety of foods and make eating fun for her. Does any one have any good egg and dairy free recipes for babies? Thanks!

Falafels are great - good finger food and really healthy and you can made them into any size
Rice cakes with avocado or nut butters
Any kind of tomato based pastas
Mini meatballs or fish cakes
Homemade Chicken and veggie nuggets
Even just whole steamed veggies or corn on the cob is great finger food for 9 month olds !

2 cups self raising flour
2 cups milk
2 cups cheese
You can add other veges too.
I'm actually allergic to eggs myself (I have been since I was a child). Feel free to ask me any questions

Hi, my dd was diagnosed at 12weeks to allergies to dairy & egg so I know exactly what your going through. Shes now 16months old & thriving on a egg & dairy free diet :-)
Can your lo have soy milk? I use this alot in cooking as an alternative to cows milk. For example I make custards, white sauce for pastas. I use to also make my own rusks as there is only one brand ive ever found that is dairy free. Rice milk is also a great alternative.
kingland in woolies have a soy yogurt & they also do a soy cream cheese. Macro sell rice crackers in the baby aisle which are egg & dairy free so I would give these with either avocado spread or the soy cream cheese as snacks.
Banana muffins & buckwheat pancakes were also great snack ideas. Google was my bf, there are so many allergy friendly recipes out there! Otherwise you can get 'Orgran No Egg' which is a powdered egg replacement to use in baking. We couldnt use this at the start as my dd was also sensitive to potato starch but has now been desensitized (yay)
Coconut yogurt is also delicious! You can get coyo (usually from a health food store) or Alpine has one available in Woolies. We also use alot of chia seeds in my dd's diet to ensure shes getting the protein & calcium shes missing out on from being dairy & egg free.
Our lo is now eating what we do, I always check labels & mostly cook everything from scratch now. Praise Light Mayonnaise is egg free so we use this at home now.
Organic Bubs sachets available at coles are completely egg & dairy free and have a great range available when needed.
Good luck! Its become second nature for us now, any questions or need a chat feel free to ask ;-)

PP has given you good advice above. I'll also add that you can buy Nuttelex - it's next to the butter/margarine and is dairy free. I've been using this for ages as a substitute and it tastes fine.
Also there are plenty of milk alternatives - soy, rice, almond, oats, goat. All readily available these days.
I give my 12mth old goats milk yoghurt, you can now find it in Coles & Woolies luckily. The coconut yoghurt is nice, but very expensive if eating it regularly.
Thankfully it's actually quite easy to lead a dairy free life these days! Go to websites like Taste and type in egg & dairy free - heaps will come up so you'll be pleasantly surprised.
