What fruits and vegetables are lactose and gluten free?

 

Q. My 4 month old little girl is lactose intolerant. What vegetables do not contain lactose or gluten for her to eat? Her father and my son were the same way.

 

A. All fruit and vegetables are lactose and gluten free unless mixed with something else (i.e. butter, yogurt, bread crumbs, etc.). Lactose is a natural occurring sugar found in dairy foods and gluten is found in wheat and some grain products. Discuss your concerns with your daughter’s doctor before starting any foods to avoid a serious reaction and make sure she is ready to begin solid foods.
