I trawled the internet and came across the Hyperactive Children's Support Group. I read avidly about the Feingold diet (see Useful Websites) and how children like Joe reacted behaviourally to many artificial additives and preservatives and many foods. I began removing colourings, flavourings, nitrates. In fact I followed the diet For all of you parents wondering whether dietary intervention does make a difference then all I can say is to give it a go, even if it is only for a short while. Some children respond so dramatically that the symptoms of AD HD virtually disappear whilst other children make vast improvements but still need further intervention.
Disorders include such severe deviations as eating non-food substances like paint, dirt, animal droppings, and sand, a severe failure to eat adequately along with severe failure to gain weight, the repeated passage of stool in inappropriate places after the age of four, and the repeated passage of urine in inappropriate places after the age of five. Children with these conditions often act out because of their feelings of severe stress as a reaction to their home situation.

Feeding twins, whether breast or bottle, requires a bit of planning and dexterity. If you're breastfeeding, make sure you get enough calories to keep up with demand - between 400 to 500 extra a day. Bottlefeeding means that someone can help with feeding, but it's difficult to feed them both at the same time on your own. So timing is crucial to make sure they both get what they need. As twins are more likely to be premature, their weight gain may be slower and more erratic.

Well have I put you off Whilst my diary entries may have sounded as if I was tired and the holiday was too much for me to cope with - that just isn't true. I wrote at the end of a day and not every day. Each day we saw the wonderful sights of Disney World, coped admirably with the heat and I managed to cook for the special dietary needs of the children far more easily than at home. I also made sure that on many of our frequent occasions to the pharmacy, I spoiled myself by buying expensive beauty treatments and made a point of shaving my legs, applying face masks and liberally applying every concoction of face and body lotion imaginable in a bid to make myself feel pampered too. One thing having such a hectic lifestyle does, is to make one appreciate the little luxuries in life.
The fitness revolution starts here with our groundbreaking new 3-part program that will up your family's activity level and decrease the odds that your child will fall victim to the obesity crisis. Even hough Raidt knew her little girl was pudgy, she had no idea just how overweight Conley was until her 2-year checkup, when the pediatrician calculated her body mass index (BMI) to be in the 95th percentile earning Con-Icy the official designation of obese. Raidt was floored. Although Conley had been a big baby, almost nine pounds at birth, she had never had fast food or soda, her mom says. But Conley was a very fast eater she would scarf down her meals and ask for seconds. I would give her more, but even though it was healthy, it was still calories, says Raidt. Conley Raidt has plenty of company when it comes to weight issues. The latest research shows, incredibly, that 17 percent of kids ages 2 to 19 today are obese and a third arc overweight. The crisis has reached such epidemic...
Before, I didn't just simply try dietary intervention with Joe, I threw mind, body and soul into researching it and implementing it to the last letter. Dietary intervention has and does work and at the risk of being a diet bore (OK, I make no apologies for the fact that I am), dietary intervention is an important part of the way forward with many children. I have outlined the steps I took before trying medication. I tried everything possible before I trialled medication with Joe. For me that was the right thing to do because I would have always wondered if I had missed anything and if there was a way I could avoid medication. People's comfort levels differ with different interventions and whilst one parent may be quite comfortable with the notion that their child needs medication, they may not be so comfortable at the idea of restricting whole food groups. For me, I needed to be sure there was no other way before I felt a duty to Joe and us all, to trial medication. As a parent, you...
If you ask my children to recall Easter, I know full well the one that will spring to their minds. It's not something I will forget easily either They often collapse into fits of giggles as they tell the tale, and relish the opportunity to recount it at the most inopportune moments. Easter is difficult in our house because the boys are on a gluten- and casein-free diet. There is always a great deal of tension as Joe gets angry and tries to steal the older children's Easter eggs. To compensate for their restrictions, I tend to go rather overboard by making treasure hunts and little games to play with their own special chocolate. One year we were all throwing sweets up in the air and seeing if any of us could catch them in our mouth. Whilst I played in one room with the boys, the girls did the same with chocolates and ofcourse I got the job ofmaking sure there was none on the floor that the boys could pick up later. As I scanned the floor for chocolate, I suddenly spied a stray...
As I have already written in previous chapters, Luke, Ben and Joe are on special diets and I am sure many of you reading this have children who also have special dietary needs for whatever reason. Whilst in an ideal world, families ofchildren on special diets would all eat the same foods and everyone would bake together and eat together in a perfect picture of family harmony and happiness, some things just are not ideal When their hormones are giving us all a break and I have my pleasant reasonable children to live with me for a short time, then they fully understand the reasoning behind the diet, see the amazing changes in the boys and are fully supportive. Indeed they are the first ones to moan if Joe turns back into the pre-diet, destructive little animal or they are required to change an endless stream ofBen's dirty nappies. I firmly believe that ifthey didn't have their brothers' behaviours and diet to moan about then their lives would be sadly lacking
As parents, weight gain is one of our biggest worries. So how do you know if your little one is developing normally Other factors, including nutrition and the health of the mum during pregnancy, can affect a child's size. But as little ones grow, it's not how heavy they are at any given time that's important but the rate at which they gain weight . Every child follows a set pattern of growth from birth. Your health visitor will plot your baby's weight gain for the first few weeks (then less regularly as he grows up) in his health record on a growth chart, also known as a centile chart (see below). at 6 months. After this, weight gain gradually slows down. Some little ones may not follow the growth charts very well, but this doesn't mean they're ill. Exclusively breastfed babies, premature babies or twins all show slightly different weight gain progress. In this case, your health visitor will use different, specialised charts to check your child is gaining weight properly.
Whilst preparing a mass of different meals for myriad picky eaters including those with special dietary needs can be stressful, it pales into insignificance in comparison to the worries about the emotional and mental well-being of the children. It seems, as parents, that there are some areas over which we have very little or even no control and as our children reach their adolescent years these areas increase. One such area is indeed exactly what and how much our children eat. The media, particularly in Western society, places great emphasis on physical beauty and most magazines and other media depict thinness as beauty. This gives rise to an escalating industry of diet and exercise, and teenagers, girls in particular, are the prime targets. As our children mature into young adults, all we as parents can do is to cook healthy nutritious meals for our children and hope that we have imparted enough information for them to decide for themselves exactly how and what to eat. In addition,...
