Plamil organic chocolate- dairy and soya free (and guaranteed no nuts). Not all bars safe but I think choc and ginger and chco and orange as well as plain choc are safe- got me through Christmas!!

Ginger nut biscuits, fig rolls, hob nobs
Haribo jelly sweets
Watch out for flavourings in crisps - most ready salted or posh crisps are fine
Jordans museli's

I eat a LOT of dried fruit and different types of nuts though - but they are obviously fine

Monetzuma's organic dark chocolate is amazing if you find it.

Booja Booja dairy free ice cream (I found it in a farm shop once)

weird - it was Liz, not me that said that!! (I had to check - didn't think I had but my baby brain does odd things!!).  Lisa - dietician can give you a dairy-free booklet that gives you an overview of what to avoid and list of calcium-rich foods.  We also got "Neocate" (dairy free formula) prescribed for DS (for older children, not baby formula) - it is revolting (DS takes most foods but shudders when drinks it!!) - okay when made into smoothie or in baking (well, DS takes it!!).
L x Having a bw break from 1 Feb 2012 - if you want to get in touch please send me a pm.  I may not be here but you are all in my thoughts xxxx (probably be back some time)

still happily married, just not counting!

A lot of plain choc is dairy free but can contain soy. There are some about that don't, sainsburys do one that doesn't. I think waitrose do too. I also stock up on crisps, sesame snaps, muesli bars, marshmallows (dip in melted choc!).

Yes - it does depend whether you avoid the emulsifier soy lechithin or not - my dietician said there is no need too for the vast majority of people. It is an oil which doesn't contain the protein.

I am going to add the brand Orgran to the thread as it has been recommended over on the CRC board and seems to have a great range of foods online.

Oh Liz, I am so addicted to this. Have made another batch already. Had 1 bit for breakfast, 1 for snack at 10 and then another for pudding at lunch. Just going to have another bit now and watch Emmerdale. 4 pieces in 1 day! Naughty  :P

100g SF/DF plain choc
100g DF marg
2tbsp golden syrup

Melt together (1 min in microwave)

Crush 1 packet doves farm DF/EF/WF/SY hazelnut biscuits (or equivalent). Stir in choc mix. Add about a handful of mini marshmellows or nuts - or whatever else takes your fancy really!

Into a tin and set in fridge or 45 mins in freezer (if you can't wait that long like me!)

i have made ANOTHER batch today - a triple batch for Olly's birthday party tomorrow!
