I have been reading up on this type of diet and thinking of trying it. It seems time consuming but if it works it may be worth it. I would love some more information about it too. If you find anything please let me know!

My oldest is currently on this type of diet and we are considering switching all of us over because my 5yo could use it as well. It is not always easy, especially if you want to eat out or at a friend's house and birthday parties can be rough. It can be time consuming and costly at first, but once you get the hang of it it's not too bad.


We love 8th Continent vanilla soy milk, my son also thinks goats milk or yogurt is good. GlutenFreePantry brand has real good foods that taste like normal food (I make their chocolate cake for birthdays). You have to try different brands because some are real gritty I think. Glutino makes the world's best real tasting pretzels too! Here is a link to my favorite brands http://www.glutino.com/content/view/53/62/

Hmmm, not really sure how best to answer this. I have heard if you switch you need to stick to the diet all the time. I think it depends on the reason why you are doing it though. My 5yo has some pretty big sensory issues and is also getting screened for a spectrum disorder this year. If we switched him, which we are in the process of doing,
