If you are allergic to one of the best natural sources of calcium, you just need to supplement. Most people are calcium deficient and if you can't eat dairy you probably are too. Take a multi vitamin every day and 1200 to 1500mg of Ca. Preferably Ca citrate. The reason for the multi is first of all everyone needs one and secondly you need D and Mg to properly metabolize the Ca.

I have the same problem so I drink enriched rice milk and also almond milk. I take Lactaid pills when I eat cheese. Lactaid doesn't completely work but it helps a little.

Like yellowsnow said, just take a supplement of calcium.

As long as you are getting enough D and Mg, you will be fine!

We used two dairy-free cookbooks to help us convert to a dairy-free home. They are: The Milk-Free Kitchen: Living Well Without Dairy Products by Beth Kidder and Dairy-Free Cookbook by Jane Zukin.
The Zukin book is an incredible resource for what foods have what vitamins, and it has other wonderfully helpful information. Like the others, we, too, have used soymilk, rice milk and almond milk, but we have also used the wonderful new products that have been hitting store shelves in recent years. There are some great dairy-free cheeses and tasty soy-based and rice-based products that easily replace the dairy products that we love.

My Autistic son is on a gluten-free, casein-free diet which basically means no dairy or wheat products whatsoever. I also have stopped giving him soy as well because I read about the high concentrations of estrogen which are prevalent. So I thought - what am I going to give him???? - I found this milk made from the Hemp seed and he loves it!! It's also 46% Calcium as well.
