Health Tip: Living With Lactose Intolerance

(HealthDay News) - Lactose intolerance makes it difficult for someone to digest a type of sugar found in milk and other dairy products.

Here are suggestions, courtesy of the Nemours Foundation, to help a child who is lactose-intolerant:
  • Try consuming dairy products in moderation.
  • Try cheese and yogurt, which may be easier for lactose-intolerant children to digest than milk.
  • Try lactose-free or lactose-reduced milk.
  • Try a lactose enzyme supplement before eating dairy products, to help the body digest lactose.
  • Try eating dairy products along with non-dairy foods, which may help ease digestion.
  • Try getting extra calcium in the form of calcium-fortified juices, broccoli, beans, tofu and soy milk.
