Cow Milk Allergy Diet and Management

 
 

There is currently no cure for a cow milk protein allergy (CMPA). As with any food allergy, the surest way to manage CMPA is to avoid cow milk and any foods that contain dairy proteins. For infants, the first choice is to continue feeding breast milk, and if the doctor advises mom will avoid milk and dairy in her diet, under medical supervision. (She may need to supplement her diet with some nutrients that dairy foods are high in, like calcium.) If formula is needed to supplement or replace breast milk, a hypoallergenic formula is needed.
