Have any of you put your children on
a gluten-free diet? If you know me or my family, we are completely off
of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. We did this instead
of putting Funny Man I, my seven year old, on Ritalin. Here is the
google list of articles when I googled Food Coloring and hyperactivity. There are many similarities!
It has helped out a lot, but he is having issues at school still. I ran into an old friend who took gluten out of his son's diet and all of his "focus" issues at school are gone!! So I am looking for more outside help. I am also looking into getting his eyes checked, I am researching vision deficits. First step is an eye test with an optometrist. Then start with a plan and an IEP for him.
So there are two parts to this step one: Vision test and gluten free diet.
Anybody out there with some words of wisdom???
