Need a dairy-free hot lunch your kids will love?

Here’s our hot dog lunch tray, and it’s a hit with my kids.

PLEASE NOTE: Here at Milk Allergy Mom, we simply share products that work for our family. Please consult your own doctor before trying food, supplements, or other products. Also read all labels and call companies for the latest, most accurate product information.

At our house, we mostly do hot lunches on weekends. 

My kids like cold lunches packed for school. 

Understandable. Communal microwaves can be a pain.

And my family never perfected our thermos game for school lunch. 

But I know moms and kids who do manage hot lunch at school!

Either way, we hope this dairy-free hot lunch inspires you. 


Make sure all these items are safe for your food allergies. Always check labels. Call companies if need be. Be safe!

  • hotdog on bun
  • chips
  • cucumber slices
  • plum
  • dairy-free milk

Here are our favorite hot dogs. If your child is young, you’ll want to make sure hot dogs are not a choking hazard for them. This lunch was for my bigger boys.

Dairy-free buns can be hard to find, but they do exist. You could use your safe sandwich bread instead or skip the bread altogether. 

For chips, we used Original Pringles. Some Pringles contain milk so we only eat the original flavor. Be sure to check labels and call the company if necessary per your allergist.

My boys like almond, oat, or pea protein milk.

Happy lunching!

Have you ever tried lightlife's tofu pups? I find them in sale often. I am vegetarian, my nephew is not. He's 10. We had a bbq and he ate a tofu pup, not ever noticing it wasn't meat. Neither did my anti- anything meatless father.They're dairy free and have great protein tooTtrockwood

I've got a new Dairy Free recipe for you!

It needs a cute new name."Bow Ties with Sausage" is how it came to me. Except it works with any kind of pasta. (we've been using Rotini because that's what we have)

1 lb Italian sausage1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (we omit)1/2 c diced onion3 garlic cloves, minced28 oz can chopped tomatoes1-1/2 c whipped cream (we use 1c)1/2 tsp salt12 oz bow tie pasta3 T parsley (opt, we omit)Parmesan (we leave off)

Note: We found the breakfast sausage too spicy, so we use uncooked bratwurst and it was perfect. (too spicy is why we leave the red pepper flakes off too)

We use 2/3c soy milk and 1/3c vegetable oil instead of the whipping cream.

I want to try it with the coconut oil next but it was really good.

Directions: Crumble sausage and brown with pepper flakes, onion, and garlic. Drain off fat. Add tomatoes, cream and salt. Simmer until mixture thickens slightly, about 4 minutes. Add cooked pasta and heat through, about 2 minutes. Top with grated parmesan when serving.
