A specialised diet called the GFCF diet requires the child to avoid sources of gluten or casein in their daily diet, the effect of the same for children with special needs is being discussed. This diet, though sounds controversial in its efficacy, identifies both casein (milk protein) and gluten(wheat protein) as potential allergens for the child’s body. Since going on a GFCF diet would mean the elimination of an important food ingredient such as milk, how can a parent meet the wholesome nutritional requirements of a child when on a GFCF diet? This episode will address a few such concerns.
