I'm totally shocked and appalled at the proposals the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) has made to ban writing certain prescriptions for dairy free formula in some areas in the UK.

Both the ankle biters have milk allergies. Archie is lactose intolerant and had mostly outgrown this at 15 months old.  The only thing he can't have now is an actual glass of milk but can eat all foods containing milk and lactose, which is amazing.

Unlike the modern day, rich foods in a traditional household would have consisted of sugar, fat, flour and eggs. Now I can't imagine in the 15th century (first records of pancake day and pancake tossing) they cared about intolerances or that a need for gluten and dairy free existed but, fast forward a few hundred years, or a wee bit more, and there is most definitely a need.
