The phrases "gluten-free diet" and "casein-free diet"
are enough to strike fear into the hearts of most parents. They seem
impossible to follow, especially for children who have behavioral or
developmental challenges, or are picky eaters.
The Kid-Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook tackles all of your concerns and serves as a how-to guide for beginning and maintaining a healthy diet that can improve your child's brain function.
The book features two parts: "Get Ready! Get Set!" explains how you can accomplish these types of diets and why they work, and "Go'" includes a wide variety of kid-friendly recipes that are all gluten- and casein-free, including simple recipes for dressings, condiments, and sauces. You'll also find recipes that are also soy-, corn-, and egg-free for the child with multiple food sensitivities.
You will learn:
- How food sensitivities differ from food allergies
- How to avoid unsuspected sources of gluten, casein, soy, corn, and nuts
- Ways to "disguise" healthy foods and get rid of junk food
- What to do about the very picky eater
- Tips for dealing with "withdrawal" symptoms
- Lists of substitutes, substitutes and more substitutes!
Melon Mango Smoothie * Banana Bread * Cinnamon Pancakes * Happy Hummus * Chicken Nuggets * French Fries and Sweet Fries * Sweet Potato Enchiladas * Pizza Sauce and Crust * Turkey Noodle Soup * Peanut Butter Truffle Cookies * Chocolaty Pumpkin Bars
If you've ever thought that providing your kids with nutritious and delicious gluten- and casein-free meals is too much for you to handle -- it isn't. It's easier than you think, and it can actually be made into fun for you and your child. This book shows you how.
If you are a parent of one of the millions of children diagnosed with autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) you've, undoubtedly spent countless hours searching for answers -- things you can do to help your child thrive. Fortunately, your search may soon be over, thanks to recent discoveries connecting the food children eat to improved brain function.
Common to both autism and ADHD is the negative impact certain foods -- especially milk products and glutens -- have on your child. These ingredients are seemingly everywhere, though, and one of the challenges you are likely coping with is how to deal with a child who has a picky appetite and craves the very foods that negatively affect his or her behavior, focus, and development. The other significant challenge you are coming to grips with is finding ways to get your child to eat healthy foods.
This unique guide and cookbook not only provides gluten- and casein-free recipes and healthful substitutes, but also offers useful suggestions for feeding the picky eater, and simple techniques for starting and maintaining healthy eating habits. The authors also share details about how and why the diet works, and explain how to find and use the specialty ingredients you see in supermarkets everywhere.
And if that's not enough, you'll also find testimonials from parents and children themselves -- more than enough proof that healthy eating habits and improved health are within reach.
