My clients come to me because they are concerned about their child’s eating, sleeping and behavioural challenges. They understand that dietary changes can help autism and ADHD but don’t know what foods they should and shouldn’t eat and how to make changes to their diet . To solve these problems, I offer nutritional advice and practical support.
I’m on a mission to transform the lives of families living with Autism & ADHD. I KNOW that dietary changes can have a significant impact and I believe that all children should have the chance to experience better health and happiness.
I wanted to share an email I got from C’s teacher .
“Just wanted to let you know that C is having so many more ‘good’ days this term. I have seen a vast improvement! Keep doing what you are doing as it is paying off.”
And a massive part of this success is YOU…..If I hadn’t found you…..it was medication!
I just wanted to let you know that J has changed amazingly over the last few weeks. We’ve been on the diet now for 8 weeks and about 3-4 weeks ago he just changed into this beautiful calm boy! Life is so so much easier! He has gained weight and is stronger and looking much better.
Thanks so very much for you help.
I found Kris to be a one of a kind Nutritionist!. Her recipes were not daunting at all and totally achievable for the average working parent. I found working with Kris an invaluable experience especially for parents undertaking dietary intervention for their children. Kris’s kind and sincere approach made this a wonderful experience and one that I would highly recommend!
I did think the change would be alot more difficult but am happy to say that the kids and I now love baking school treats together and J has become quite the little master chef with helping with meals, a real positive outcome! We have also seen a change at school – he is a lot more settled and focused, we feel its due to his change in diet as well as working closely with the school psychologist. We are in such a better place now as a family as well as J being so much more settled. Thank you!
I loved your presentation Kris. . With the diet stuff, there is such a feeling of ‘if I were a better autism mom I would be doing the food better.’ And you totally debunked that. You were self-effacing, honest, you said it’s been a 10 year journey, your son’s health speaks for itself, but you were clear your knowledge comes from learning the hard way and I really appreciate that. Your realness makes you 100% relatable. No one wants the Martha Stewart of Autism diets.
I am very pleased to report that in the 3 weeks that she has been eating gluten free, she has been noticeably calmer, her meltdowns are less frequent and not quite as epic as they used to be. The change in her behaviour is quite remarkable and she is a much happier child as a result. I was interested in the science behind the theory, being a science teacher; and it certainly seemed plausible to me. We were certainly keen to try it as opposed to the paediatric psychiatrist’s recommendation that we medicate her. I would never have believed how dramatic the change could be had I not seen it myself! She is having more success self regulating and it is obvious to us that the foods she was eating were triggering some of her really challenging behaviour.
In our very long and protracted journey along the ASD road, what we learnt from you has been the most helpful and the most effective.
