What types of cheese can I feed a child who has a milk allergy?

Avoid bovine. With true bovine (cow ) milk allergy, which is rare, you want to avoid any cow milk related products.(cheese or otherwise) feta cheese, made from goat milk is a reasonable product that is readily available. If your child has simple milk intolerance due to its lactose content (1/4 americans) many bovine cheeses have minimal amounts. Verify the difference-allergy vs intolerance, life might be easier.
