As a mother of a three year old who is allergic to gluten (wheat, rye, oats, barley) and all dairy products I know how hard it can be to find a good snack for your child. Of course you already know fruits and veggies are good snacks for your child. How easy it is for a parent of a child with no food issues to speak of to tell you that you should be feeding your child only healthy snacks while they grab their kid a happy meal, ice cream cone, cheese crackers, or even something as simple as Yogo's while they are on the go. As parents of children with allergies we can't do those things. What parent has NEVER given their toddler an M&M or something similar??
There are days I find my childs food allergies are a blessing because we can't do those types of things (drive thru's)any more so we are eating healthier, but the days I wish I could make her some Mac and Cheese or a sandwich for lunch are often. Do people realize that dairy is in almost EVERYTHING??
To answer your question- we do a lot of fruit leather, homemade dried fruit, dry cereal such as Dora the Explorer Stars and Trix, Baked Lays, olives, etc. I've had to get creative and have done bacon in a pinch. There's also snack bars by Enviro kids that we've done. They are similar to a rice crispy treat only healthier. I'm not sure if they have eggs in them though. Enjoy Life and The Cravings Place have products made in a dedicated allergen free facility. Enjoy Life has cookies that are pretty decent. Something you can find at the store is prepackaged pouches of apple chips that are baked crispy- look for them in the cereal aisle next to the gummies. They have different flavors. Can your child have gummies? Good luck on your search for new snacks- I'm always on the lookout as well.

Fruits, Veggies, Berries
Peanut Butter on Apples/celery
Tortillas with refried beans or cinnamon & sugar
Hard Boiled Eggs, diced
English muffins with jelly
Pita bread sandwiches
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups unsweetened, pasteurized apple juice
3 small packages unflavored gelatin
In a small bowl, mix cinnamon into applesauce and set aside. Pour 1 cup cold apple juice in 8x8 pan and sprinkle gelatin on top. Heat remaining 1 cup of apple juice in the microwave for 3 minutes or until boiling. Stir boiling juice into the gelatin and cold apple juice. Stir in applesauce. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour and then stir to keep applesauce evenly distributed. If you omit this step the applesauce settles to the bottom, but it still tastes great! Refrigerate for an additional 2 1/2 hours or until firm. Cut into squares with a knife, or use cookie cutters to cut into shapes, and serve.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock for the last couple years, I'm sure you've heard of the Paleo Diet. Read here https://tr.im/paleodietplan
I hate to even call it a diet, because it's really just the real way that humans have eaten for almost 1.9 Million years, as opposed to the modern-day processed food diet full of grains, sugars, and processed vegetable oils.

Toddlers should not be given chocolate for snacks in any case, so that's no problem. The answer is NO chocolate snacks. Toddlers generally cannot tolerate chocolate or seafood, and sometimes even citrus.
As to dairy and eggs, you need to read labels and avoid anything that says milk, milk byproducts, whey, whey byproducts and eggs ... which often are not listed.
You need to do a google search for Milk allergies and for egg allergies to find websites that will help you. There are a lot of children with this, so getting help and recipes should not be too hard.
Do you know if the egg allergy is to the white or to the yolk?
If it's only to one part of the egg, that makes a difference as well.
The biggest challenge is having milk / egg / wheat allergies! I had a friend who had one daughter of several girls with this allergy.
There are milk-free / egg-free cookbooks and you need to get some.
on the cookies, toast, sandwiches and pancakes... if you make them yourself and can be sure they have no eggs or milk products in them, then they might work, but Katy forgot that those four products usually have either milk or eggs in them.
Mrs. C's applesauce jigglers sound great, but she forgot that hard boiled eggs are a no-no for you. I re-read the labels on my graham crackers and they appear to be milk-free and egg-free. But read all labels before you feed anything to her on any of our lists.
I have a booklet I got from The Quaker Oats Company titled: Wheat, Milk and Egg Free Recipes. contact them. They probably still print it.
Steamed Brown Bread:
1C Quaker Oats 1C whole wheat graham flour
1C Quaker Corn Meal 2.5 tsp soda
1 tsp sale 1.75 C milk (non-milk milk replacement)
.75 C light molasses
Combine dry ingredients. Combine liquids & add to dry. Stir only till dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into buttered 1.5Qt mold. Cover with aluminum foil. Place mold on wire rack. Set in large saucepan or kettle. Add a small amount of boiling water. Cover. Steam 3 hours. Uncover mold. Place in preheated very hot 450deg F oven 5 min. Remove bread from mold and cool.
They also have a recipe for corn pones, corn meal crackers, oat crackers, toffee, molasses crisps, oatmeal cookies, apricot squares, puffed rice candy balls, butterscotch crunch, peanut butter bars, apple crisp... and the recipes that call for milk, you simply use a non-dairy milk substitute! A lot of those taste quite good. I had to get them for my ex years ago and they were good then, so they should be as good or better now.
Look for allergy cookbooks at amazon.com
The links below are from a google search for milk-free egg-free recipes !!! And there were lots more links ....Source(s): http://www.foodallergycookbook.com/ http://www.foodallergy.org/recipes.html http://www.vegan-food.net/recipe/1137/Milk-free-Eg... http://www.recipezaar.com/92649 http://www.cooks.com/rec/search/0,1-0,banana_cake,... http://members.shaw.ca/allergies/ http://www.foodfunandfacts.com/wheatandeggfree.htm

Graham crackers, bananas, apple slices, Cheerios, pudding or milkshakes made with soy or rice milk, soy yogurt, soy cheeses, applesauce, canned pears (in fruit juice, not syrup), ditto for canned peaches, animal crackers, low salt pretzels, toast, toddler meat sticks and finger food raviolis, popsicles or sorbet made from fruit juice, sweet potato chips/wedges (baked in oven, tossed with a little cinnamon/sugar), Gerber toddler fruit snacks, raisins, Ritz crackers...
Hiss, boo to those who said to give a toddler nuts, peanut butter and raw carrots. Choking hazards and potential allergen for a child who already has food allergies... it's now recommended that no child be given peanut butter until after age three... age five if they have other food allergies.

I recommend going to the nearest health food store. Tell them what his restrictions are and the let them show you what they have. I have children with similar allergies and we have found wonderful pretzels by "Ener G" that taste better than any pretzel we've ever had, and their whole line of products is great.
"Ener G" also has a powder that you add water to and it becomes an egg substitute! You can make pancakes, cupcakes, any recipes that calls for eggs. I bake with it and love it. And it makes the best pancake/waffle batter, too! I make a big batch of batter and make a ton of pancakes or waffles, let them cool, put them into ziplock bags then freeze them. That way we can take pancakes & waffles out of my freezer anytime they want them. It's totally worth the effort; I do it once a month and it take about an hour.
As far as no dairy, there is Soy everything on the market. From yogurt to cheddar cheese, there is a soy version that's yummy. Also available at the health food store like Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. If you google the name of your city, and "health food store" you should find some in your area.
Is you son lactose intolerant, or truly allergic to milk? If he's just lactose intolerant PLEASE buy him some Lactaid milk. It's awesome and he'll get to have the benefits of milk without the lactose messing up his tummy. Chocolate Lactaid milk is awesome!
Here are the snacks I give my kids: pita bread, tortillas with soy cheese inside cooked like a grilled cheese, apples, bananas, carrots, raisins, grapes cut into quarters, avacado, tortilla chips, soy cheese & egg-free crackers, egg-free pasta and soy cheese sauce makes good mac & cheese.
Provided your son is just lactose intolerant here's a good cheese sauce recipe: Over medium heat add 2 tablespoons Smart Balance Spread (it's lactose free) melted in a small saucepan, whisk in 2 tablespoons flour & blend it thoroughly. Add one cup lactaid whole milk and whisk that over medium heat until it bubbles, add 1 or 1.5 cups of grated soy cheddar and stir it unitl cheese is melted. Makes a great cheese sauce, girl. It might need a little salt, so taste it first.
I also make little pizzas out of large flour tortillas, marinara sauce for pizza sauce, and grated soy cheese. Bake them on a cookies sheet at 350 for about 8 minutes. Your toddler will l-o-v-e it!
Well, there are also a wide range of cereals out there that make great snacks so go take a good look down the cereal aisle. There are also Welch's fruit snacks that taste great, available at WalMart grocery and Super Target grocery.
You'll get the hang of it soon. I suggest you carry Childrens Liquid Benadryl with you at all times. Our allergist says "one milligram per pound of weight" So if he's 20 pounds, be sure he get's enough to make 20 milligrams.
If you haven't already had the RAST test, please do. With one tube of blood they can tell you with certainty what you son is allergic to. It's so important to know. Is he also allergic to nuts? Most kids with the dairy/egg allergy are, so you might want to check that out. Ask your pediatrican or allergist about it. You should also have an EpiPen on hand in case he ever has a severe reaction you can inject him and get to the nearest ER for additional treatment. The EpiPen is only part of the treatment, they need medical attention at an ER right after having a severe allergic reaction.
Best of luck to you!Source(s): Experinced Mommy, Certified Pharmacy Tech, family of M.D.'s
