Many parents that have a child with autism seek alternative treatments for their child’s symptoms, and one of the most natural places to look is diet. We eat to fuel, not to feel full, and diet has a huge role in how we feel and act every day (as anyone who has given their child too much sugar in one day will tell you!). Some parents report an improvement in their child’s autism symptoms when following a gluten free diet, and many try it because it is a relatively small change that can have immediate results.
Here you can find up-to-date, relevant news stories, helpful information, shopping lists, recipe recommendations and more. We will connect you with a network of other people just like you. Last, but certainly not least, we will provide delicious, wholesome gluten free products that will bring joy to your gluten free lifestyle.
