Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Pitter Patties

Another in the long series of mothers who took mattes into their own hands because of their children, Kerry Williams and Susan Stahly started Pitter Patties.

Made of tasty blends of vegetables, proteins, and whole grains, Pitter Patties are muffin-shaped frozen entrées which can be heated in minutes and served to hungry toddlers, or kids of all ages.

An article by Joann Groff in the Thousand Oaks Acorn said that:

Williams and Stahly have recently teamed up with a pediatric dietician to develop further varieties, perhaps focusing on children's allergies.

"Kids' allergies seem to be growing at a very fast rate," Williams said. "A lot of parents are looking for glutenfree alternatives. We already have two glutenfree varieties and two dairyfree."

The ladies call Pitter Patties "pickupable," which means they can be eaten without silverware if kids aren't "fork ready."

"They can pick it up and eat it themselves, which is good for me because I have the most independent children," Williams said. "I can really avoid trying to feed them with a spoon. It's one less problem."

United Natural Foods Inc. has picked up Pitter Patties and is distributing them throughout California.

Their website lists "Five fantastic varieties - Yammy Chicken, Spinach Patch, Confetti Burger, Pasghetty, & Cheezini."
