For Anyone Pondering A Caesin Free Diet....

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've recently put my daughter on a caesin free diet, and it has been so much easier than I ever expected. It's been alot easier to cut out than gluten was.

I noticed that Emmie's speech seemed to be getting worse, and the only change in her diet was that she had been eating a large amount of dairy. It's only been 5 days, but I am noticing a change. She is speaking in more complex sentences, her personality seems to be really blossoming, and she is noticing more things around her. Her speech therapist even said that she is doing better with her f's.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this. I had been stalling on doing this, b/c it would mean more restrictions for her. But for anyone considering going CF, it has really been easy. I wish I had done this much sooner!

I'm glad to hear that your daughter is doing well on the casein free diet :) I am on a gluten and casein free diet and I don't find it that hard either. I hope your daughter continues to do better.

I'm glad it's working so well for you! I'm Gluten-free Casein-free, but find the CF harder than gluten-free. Bread I can deal without, but I miss cheese and yogurt! The two truely CF cheeses are made with soy, like yogurt replacements, and not only am I not a huge fan of the taste, but I try to minimize soy whenever possible and not eat it every day. But you're right, it's not so hard that it's undoable by any stretch of the imagination! :-)

Tamara,

Does she eat soy cheese and yogurt at all, or does she not care? I find myself feeding Ella so much dairy now since she can't have many of the other snacks she used to eat. I often wonder if she would be even better caesin free. Now that I say that about the soy stuff, I think it actually does contain caesin, so I guess she couldn't have that.

Instead of buying a lot of expensive gluten-free crackers and stuff I've just been feeding her cheese and grapes, yogurt, and pudding for snacks.

I'm glad it's working out so well for Emmie. I know how exciting it is to try something and notice such a great improvement. I'm thrilled for her!

Hi Shannon! Emmie does love her yogurt and cheese, but as long as she doesn't see it in the fridge, she doesn't miss it. I feel a little guilty for cutting out more food that she loves, but it really seems to be helping. Each day, she says something else that amazes me. Her sentences are much more complex, even my 6 year old noticed a change.

The hardest part for me has been cutting out old habits, like putting butter in everything (now sub w/olive oil). As I was getting ready to make spaghetti the other night, I realized even Ragu has milk in it. So, I will have to adjust my shopping list again. I had been in a real groove as far as gluten-free went, I knew exactly what brands to get, and didn't need a list anymore. But, I know I'll get there again eventually.

Lucky for me, I have a child who doesn't mind eating nearly the same thing everyday! :D
