Many kids who’ve been diagnosed with disorders and disabilities have limited diets and digestive problems.
I wish that some of our prominent chefs would put their collective talents together and give us ideas to address these needs.
For example, kids on the spectrum with inadequate jaw strength still require huge amounts of calories every day to grow. They need high-protein meals that aren’t complicated to prepare and involve a few key ingredients like cheese.
What about the “on-the-run” kids with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder who bring home their entire lunch because they bolt out of the classroom and only want to play?
And, what about those who have serious digestive issues that cause discomfort and subsequently, avoidance of many foods?
Food problems interfere with social functioning, impact health and reduce the joy of life. Together, let’s get the help we need to feed our kids.
