So. My 5 year old son got diagnosed with Autism this past school year. And we are giving a change to his diet a chance by going gluten-free and caisin-free to see if it positively impacts his health and behavior. It's incredibly challenging to find food he likes, but this blog will help me catalog the adventure.
Namaste makes a good gf/cf waffle/ pancake mix. We add fruit on the side. In addition to his omegas and multi-vitamin.
gf/cf pretzels are a good snack. but he hates them. :( might need to find some dark chocolate to melt and drizzle on them.
chicken noodle soup made from scratch for lunch (canned chicken, gf noodle and gf bullion).
gf/cf cookies have been nice to have on hand for eating bribery.
Soy cheese was a total flop.
Bananas fill in the gaps for this boy during the snack time. Or pineapple.
Tonight is baked chicken with edemame and brown rice.
The dad in the family is celiac and is why this blog initially existed. Now my son's diet and my daughter's egg allergy has truly made my life a food science exploration.
ps. Cherrybrook Farm makes an excellent cake and frosting mix my WHOLE family can eat as long as you use margerine without whey (has milk in it) for the frosting.
