Overview

For many children with epilepsy, the only reliable way to control seizures is the ketogenic diet: a mathematically calculated, doctor-supervised plan that strictly limits both calories and liquid intake. Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet is a practical guide that enables families to successfully master this nutritional therapy, while making the experience as pleasant as possible for both parent and child. Written by Deborah Snyder, a family physician and mother of a four-year-old "keto-kid," the book provides compassionate advice for parents transitioning to a lifestyle where one extra bite of food can have serious repercussions on a child's health. This unique book gives readers the facts about the day-to-day management of the diet, while communicating the emotional struggle encountered by children who must learn self-control at a very young age. This book provides parents with: Recipes for keto-friendly meals and tips for saving time and making limited menus more interesting; Strategies for managing food-oriented occasions like holidays and parties; Advice for dealing with the emotional loss of a child's favorite foods; A day-by-day account of life on the ketogenic diet, in diary form Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet is an indispensable resource for families embarking on this challenging, but effective, medical treatment.
