The best “kid-friendly” recipes and guide to the gluten-free, milk-free diet for ADHD and autism just got better. In addition to updates on new research and findings, readers will find recommendations from the authors for packing school lunches and snacks, plus 100 brand new 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book I bought this cookbook solely on the reviews I read on Amazon. I wasn't disappointed. My son was recently diagnosed with ADHD so I've been trying to find different ways to help him and it can be very overwhelming. This book actually has recipes that my picky eater enjoys.

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
