hi swetha adda there are some food allergen in food community. food allergen includes nut ,milk,fish, soy,shellfish,egg,wheat etc. soy products are useful in case of lactose intolerance,but soy itself is allergen. you have to identify the particular allergen for your baby and now you have to avoid that food completely. incase if your child have allergy in gluten,he/she can not digest any wheat product like bread biscuit roti chapati etc. then you have to depend on rice products.

Try giving soya milk and tofu. U can also add soya flour in whole wheat flour. Give him chikoo, specially the white portion near seed, its full of calcium or makhana. I did the same with my son since he was also lactose intolerant.
