My son (3) has been gluten-free since May and he's been doing great. He's grown four inches, his gas pains and behavior problems are GONE, and his speech is improving daily. (though still significantly delayed.)
The problem is he has gradually eliminated almost everything from his diet. He now refuses to eat meat, eggs, and vegetables! For the past couple of months his dinner has consisted of "power balls": peanut butter, tofu, pureed apples and ground almonds. Weird maybe, but nutritious!
Now he refuses everything except dry cereal, veggie chips and gluten-free cookies and he won't drink rice or soy or almond milk! (even chocolate.)
I know most of this is a food-phobia- he was in pain for so long, and now he's afraid to eat. But because of the speech delay it's impossible to discuss this with him.
Has anyone else had this problem? What the heck can I do? (and by the way, his ped. was no help at all. The man knows squat about nutrition.)
