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 However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.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.

Two Books for Dairy-Allergic Kids

Cody the Allergic Cow is one of a series of books about children with various food allergies, along with Chad the Allergic Chipmunk (nut allergies) and Allie the Allergic Elephant (peanut allergies), all written by Nicole Smith and illustrated by Maggie Nichols.

Cody the Allergic Cow is a cleverly written book that will help those of us in public education support one more sector of our population. Through such enlightened awareness students, teachers and parents will serve as a catalyst for more inclusiveness and normalization. --Lew Davis, Principal, Foothills Elementary School

Cody through its delightful illustrations, lets a child learn about milk allergy, understand responsible behavior, and know that kids can be allergic to milk yet still have fun. Kids with milk allergy are special, just like Cody! --Lynda Mitchell, Mother of milk-allergic child, Food allergy support group facilitator

Thank you, Nicole and Maggie, for another child friendly, informative book on food allergies. I'm delighted to have another one of your books and will recommend Cody the Allergic Cow for the little ones in my practice with milk or other food allergies. --Bonnie Baswell, M. D. Allergist, Colorado Springs, CO
