No cure for food allergy is available. Strict avoidance of the food allergen is the only therapeutic option.

What should I feed a toddler with milk allergies that is very picky and just wants his bottle of soy formula?

Finger foods: Offer small servings of finger foods- crackers, pieces of fruit or veggies, pieces of meat, rice/noodles/potatoes- that your child can pick up and feed himself.
