    Default Anyone give their toddlers/babies Rice Milk?

    if so, how do you find it? my ds2 (2 years old) can't have normal milk, zymil, Soy milk, doesn't like Almond milk (don't blame him it tastes horrid). And my last resort is Rice milk. everything else either gives him the runs or constipates him.

    I don't like to have too much dairy so I usually swap around with almond milk (my favourite), rice milk and oat milk. Depends on what's on sale.
    I haven't actually given it to my son but if I were to I would check the ingredients list to make sure it's pretty much just rice, water etc. no added sweetener and the like.

    Also he might be a bit more inclined to oat milk if he eats oats?



    There's also quinoa milk out there. I haven't had it myself because it's pretty pricey!!

    Yep I gave my kids rice milk when they were young. There were no problems and I still use it today (youngest is 7).

    Both my kids are on Rice milk as they are dairy intolerant. They both like the taste and it substitutes easily in cooking (cakes, custard, tuna mornay etc). It also has a good quantity of calcium which is great. I was using almond milk for my DS at times but the calcium content was too low for his requirements (under 2)

    thanks everyone. ok rice milk seems to be working the best... BUT... as it's thin, it's not obviously as filling as formula. any way I can make it thicker with anything that won't upset his tummy?

    I didn't think rice milk was recommended for kids under 5 due to Arsenic levels or somthing?

    Add some oats to it maybe?

    My DD had rice milk, still does, due to dairy intolerance. But she was on Neocate until 12 months then swapped to rice milk.
