Do your kids have tummy troubles when it comes to milk? We’ve been lucky with only occasional discomfort but I know how awful it can get. Especially with a kid who loves milk and cookies like mine do! These cashew lemon pudding cookies were gone so fast!

Growing up my dad and brother both had issues with milk. But they weren’t lactose intolerant. Dad couldn’t take even a sip of milk, my brother could drink no more than a glass. Dad couldn’t eat ice cream but could have frozen yogurt. He could also eat cheese but only the stronger cheeses. Figuring out tummy issues caused by milk can be quite the process. Until recently, the only products available to help were for people who were lactose intolerant, but that’s not the only issue.
Thanks to a2 Milk® there’s now a real milk that addresses the issues that stem from the proteins in milk. The A1 protein in milk causes many people to have discomfort after drinking milk and the A1 protein is in all conventional and even organic milk in the United States.
Right now a2 Milk® is only in select locations but they are working with dairy farmers in New York and the Midwest to grow the herds that produce milk with only the a2 protein. You can use their website to find out if it’s in a store near you.
After many years of trial and error, my dad is able to drink milk and we know for sure it wasn’t a lactose intolerance. He’s pretty happy to be able to enjoy milk and cookies again. Today I am also sharing one of my favorite cookie recipes and it just so happens to taste great with a glass of milk.
