When Food Causes Harm
Special diets often run the news when it comes to autism food & health, but where should you start? Furthermore, where does it all end? This is a main topic of concern for nearly all of our clients, and there is never a short answer. On one hand, each child is treated individually, on the other hand, many children on the spectrum share commonalities when it comes to the need for special diets. Here is what you should know…
Special diets (such as the Gluten Free Casein Free, Feingold, and Specific Carbohydrate Diet to name a few) :
Eliminating foods from a child’s diet is easy. Doing so safely, takes the help of a nutrition professional. If you, or anyone you know is looking to use a special diet for a child on the spectrum, please advise them to do so with the help of a professional Registered Dietitian Nutritionist! Diets can be confusing, especially when used with other treatment plans, supplements, and therapies. Don’t go at it alone!
