Whether someone in your family has allergies/sensitivities, an autoimmune condition, or is on the spectrum, your health care provider may recommend a gluten-free casein-free diet. This can be a tricky transition to make, especially with little ones and especially if they have sensory processing issues. Here’s a list of some of my favorite resources.
• Cooking with a Cause app (this article from Gluten Free Living gives a good run down)
• Living Gluten-Free Casein-Free is a meal plan and comprehensive resource developed by an NP (this article from Add Salt & Serve gives lots of details and a sample menu)
• gfcf.com has an awesome recipe compilation here
•All of the recipes on Go Dairy Free are casein-free and many are gluten-free
• The Autism Community in Action has a comprehensive resource that also includes soy-free options
• The book Eating for Autism by Elizabeth Strickland Sauls is a personal favorite that I use as a reference when working with clients; it includes great info on why to go GF/CF, how to transition to GF/CF, and an entire section full of kid friendly recipes (get your own copy here)
•The Irish Twins’ Momma posts lots of kid tested recipes and provides allergen-friendly swaps
