Q.

Melk

My 2 jarige seuntjie is " allergies"  vir suiwel en gee ek vir hom soya melk. " Allergies"  in die sin van dat die melk slym veroorsaak en dat dit grotendeels die oorsaak is hoekom hy altyd siek is (nou was). Kan ek vir hom laktose intolleransie melk ook gee in plaas van soya?

Indien jou seuntjie wel allergies is vir melk kan hy nie laktose-vry melk drink nie. Dit is die proteien in melk en suiwel wat allergie veroorsaak en nie die laktose wat 'n natuurlike suiker in melk is.
