Living Without Books: The “Miracle” Diet for Autistic Children

Struggling with how and what to feed your autistic or ADHD picky eater? Take a look at  The Kid-Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook (Fair Winds Press). Experts Pamela Compart, a developmental pediatrician, and Dana Laake, a licensed nutritionist, team up to give you serious advice on how to successfully tackle the challenges of implementing the gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) diet. This book offers parents life-changing guidance and support. In part one, the authors explain why going GFCF can improve your child's brain function. It includes information on dealing with withdrawal symptoms and provides tips on how to remove junk foods from the daily diet and how to avoid hidden sources of gluten, casein, soy, corn and nuts. Part two is chock-full of nutritious recipes, including GFCF versions of your child’s favorite foods like pizza, cookies, chicken nuggets and French fries. While the GFCF diet isn’t a cure for autism or ADHD, it often results in positive behavioral changes and is well worth trying. Allow these experts to help you through the process.
