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.
