Publisher Description

Coping with autistic children, and ones suffering from ADHD, is an exhausting process, and parents often feel unable to cope at all, let alone able to provide a balanced or suitable diet. Research demonstrates that children suffering from these disorders can have their behaviour modified and changed simply by certain proteins contained in the foods they eat, and this is the latest, updated book to enable parents to help their children by ensuring they eat the right foods. With commentary on new research and findings, there are recommendations for packed school lunches, snacks, and 100 brand new recipes for home meals, parties, picnics, with a table showing what can be used as a substitute for the 'wrong' foods. Children often crave the very foods that change their behaviour, and are picky eaters: this book provides gluten-free, milk-free substitutes and recipes, plus successful suggestions for feeding the picky eater, with details of how and why the diet works, speciality ingredients explained, and extensive sources listed.
Recipes include Waffles, pancakes, mashed cauliflower, potato-carrot mash, apple cole slaw, pasta salad, chicken nuggets, chocolate chip cookies, poached pears, cranberry muffins, apple crumble, chocolate musse, homemade hamburgers, mayonnaise, fruit salads, devilled crab, lentil loaf, plus a variety of delicious smoothies.

This mysterious group of developmental disorders still has no known cause, but those who have them seem to have a high incidence of digestive problems. Dietary interventions often lead to improved functioning. These three books offer information about diets and recipes that appeal to children. Strickland, a registered dietitian specializing in ADHD and autism, offers the most detail, explaining the importance of good nutrition for development and discussing food allergies and the use of special diets, vitamins, and supplements. Compart, a developmental pediatrician and Laake, a registered dietitian, cover the gluten-free, casein-free diet and its use in treating both ADHD and autism. They explain what the diet is, why it works, and how to transition a child onto it. Kid-friendly recipes make up the book s core. There is also a resource list. Kessick, a British autism advocate who has an autistic son, presents the shortest book, which features a brief history of dietary intervention in treating autism and material on the implementation of a special diet at home and at school. Her lists of ingredients contain gluten, casein, and other potentially dangerous additives. Buy based on preferred focus. Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L. - “Library Journal, May 1, 2009”"
