FYI, my Dad used to eat this spread on bread post-WWII in England. I haven’t gotten up the nerve to try this yet (a reminder...

I received an email from a mom who wondered how her child would get enough fat with his milk allergy. She was planning to wean at one year and wasn’t sure what to do. Hydee (The Feeding Doctor’s pediatric dietitian consultant) and I came up with some thoughts for this not uncommon problem.
