Re: Anyone Else Keep Their Kids Off Dairy? Gluten? Food Dyes? Processed Foods? Etc?

I did an elimination diet with my kids along with behavior charts (2weeks of charting before and charting during). The only difference I found was with my oldest who is ASD and food dyes. It actually causes him to get really itchy, whiny, and worsens his Kertosis polaris. So Kearnan is off of all food dyes and eventually I may take out artificial flavorings as well. We try to stay away from HFCS anyway. The gluten and dairy didn't seem to make any difference for either of my boys and Tharen had no change with the diet. Both of my kids have special needs.
