Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: John Willis, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a personal book written by a doctor about administering the ketogenic diet to her son. It is essentially a book of recipes plus many helpful and, no doubt, hard-won insights into making the diet tolerable and workable.
Purpose: The author proposes to help children succeed on the ketogenic diet, a worthy objective that is ably accomplished.
Audience: This book is for parents, but practitioners and dieticians may find many helpful tips.
Features: This is a practical guide to using this diet to feed a child with seizures — menus, strategies, special holidays, and psychological tips. Parents should find all of this helpful. The recipes alone are golden.
Assessment: This is a very useful book. I will recommend it to every parent who may use the diet for a child with difficult to control epilepsy.
