Containing the best "kid-friendly" recipes, this is a complete, new-in-paperback guide to the gluten-free, milk-free diet for ADHD and autism. In addition to current research and findings, this book provides recommendations from the authors for packing school lunches and snacks, plus hundreds of recipes! One of the challenges that parents face is coping with children who have picky appetites and crave the very foods that affect their behavior, focus, and development. The other challenge is finding ways to get their children to eat healthy foods. The uniqueness of this book is that it not only provides gluten-free milk-free substitutes and recipes, it provides successful suggestions for feeding the picky eater. The specialty ingredients are explained and extensive sources provided. There are also testimonials from the parents and from the children themselves.
