The Kid-Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook: The Ultimate Guide to the Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet

by Pamela Compart

Fair Winds Press | November 30, 2006 | Hardcover

The Kid-Friendly ADHD and Autism Cookbook: The Ultimate Guide to the Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
The best kid-friendly recipes and guide to the gluten-free milk-free diet for ADHD and Autism.What it is. Why it works. How to do it.

The Centers for Disease Control reports significant increases in Autism and ADHD - both affecting primarily boys. The CDC estimates that 1 out of 175 children (age 4 to 17) currently have Autism (300,000). Before 1985, Autism occurred in less than 1 out of 2000. ADHD is much more common in that it affects 4.4 million U.S. children (age 4 to 17).

Common to both of these conditions is the negative impact of certain foods - especially milk products and glutens such as wheat(and to a lesser degree - soy and corn.) 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 and improve their nutritional status.

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 authors share details about just how and why the diet works. The specialty ingredients are explained and extensive sources provided. There are also testimonials from the parents and from the children themselves.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Written, Good Basic Recipes This book gives excellent information about the Gluten free Casein Free diet. It is not the best source of information about the diet, but does have a decent explanation. We've tried several recipes in the book & have been pretty happy with them. The Honey Vanilla Pancakes are a favorite here as well as the Peanut Butter Truffle cookies. There is also a great recipe for pizza crust that we now make all the time. The authors also include some recipes that are good pureed. We haven't tried this, but would if we had a small child! If you are looking for a basic cookbook for GFCF diet and already have the Special Diets for Special Kids book, this is one to try!
