Some parents do prefer to add almond milk to their child's diet. One reason behind this could be lactose intolerance in children. Some kids may develop allergy to animal milk.

Generally, nut allergies could cause vomiting, diarrhea, cramps in the stomach, wheezing, cough, and stuffy nose, rash and so on. You might need to be very cautious as some nut allergies could lead to life-threatening conditions too.
