My DD is highly allergic to milk and I am still getting used to label reading. I thought I was doing really well but missed the D or DE symbols on some things that my daughter routinely eats. I continue to give my dd silk milk since she has drank that for 2 yrs now but does anyone else eat whole fruits sorbet without problems. I also found the DE on some popsicles I've given her. I am very disappointed that these symbols are so small and think they should be on the same side of the box as the ingredient panel. I can't believe I've missed these and now it seems like the more I look the more I see these symbols.

My neighbor when I lived in AZ had two children with very sensitive milk allergies (both have outgrown it). She gave them Edy's/Dreyer's (same brand, but the name depends on where you live) Whole Fruit sorbet. They never seemed to have a problem. And her daughter was sensitive enough that as a toddler she found a crumb of something cross-contaminated with milk under the table. She ate that one little crumb and was sick.

We try to avoid the DE as much as possible, because my ds has reacted with hives to some things, not all. The companies that advertise they're dairy free, and advertise they're cleaning procedures, he's generally ok with. Meg
