"Food Fight!" Nutritional Strategies for Children with ASD
and Their Families
Presented in partnership with AuSM
Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015
St David's Center, Gym
3395 Plymouth Road, Minnetonka
Research has proven that children with ASD have numerous nutrient deficiencies and gastrointestinal disorders that contribute to poor health and behavioral symptoms. Sensory issues, food refusal and peculiar cravings affect many children with ASD, making it difficult to introduce healthier foods. Anne Kelly, MD, MPH, will present information on the use of whole food powders to make nutrient-rich shakes that are affordable, dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free, and discuss strategies that will simplify the nutrition routine for the whole family.
