Dairy-Free Milk for the Lunchbox

I really wish this product were available ten years ago. When my son was diagnosed with allergies to milk and soy, the only option he had for a take-along drink box was juice. Not that juice is necessarily a bad choice – but I would have preferred a choice with more calcium and vitamin D for his school lunches.

The good news is, it’s here now, and if you need a non-dairy milk option to pack in those brand-new lunchboxes as the kids go off to school, this just might be the right choice for you.

These shelf-stable versions of So Delicious Dairy-Free coconut milk beverage come in packs of 8, in three different flavors – original, vanilla, and chocolate.

Even the chocolate version you see here is just 70 calories for 6.5 ounces. The unsweetened original version is only 35 calories per box.
They are free of gluten, milk, eggs, soy, and nuts. They do (of course) contain coconut.

With 25% of the Vitamin D requirement and 6% of the calcium requirement, I’d say this is a great lunch box choice for kids with food allergies. What non-dairy drinks do you send to school with your kids?
