low-carb "diet" for a picky kid, any experiences?
DSS may has trouble focusing, and to try to help him before we can get in for testing, we are going to try the low-carb diet recommended by some experts for ADHD kids. The whole family will be doing this of course. However, the kiddo is a very picky and very poor eater in general. He will eat the typical kid foods, pizza, hamburgers, spaghetti, chicken nuggets, sugary cereal, that kind of thing. We will have to start making him breakfast and lunch for school instead of allowing him to eat those meals from the cafeteria. This is going to be hard for him.
Any suggestions to make the process easier? Ideas on quick, high-protein, low-carb breakfasts? We both work and have a baby to get ready too. Ideas for lunch and snack that don't make him look like the "uncool kid"? The schools here actually tell the kids to bring money for candy every day for snack time.
