Liam, the boy who used to only want to eat crackers, tortilla chips, muffins & bread, ate an actual meal with us today! Quinoa pasta with olive oil & Daiya cheddar cheese, grilled peppers, onions, garlic, sausage and fresh tomatoes!! Then to top it off, he ate coconut raspberry yogurt for dessert with chia seeds. Liam helped pour the chia seeds in the yogurt and ate it enthusiastically!
This is the most amazing thing to me! Before the diet change to GFCF, he would scream if we tried to get him to eat anything besides his ‘crunchies’ or smoothies. To eat mixed textures like this, and with a fork, is nothing short of amazing. My husband was nearly in shock! As were my parents & grandparents!
Not only has Liam started eating meals, but he is also improving with his language, sounds and focus. His therapists have commented on how much more engaged he has been.
I do home therapies with Liam and he has improved at least 50% since starting the Generation Rescue grant just about a month and a half ago. I am so looking forward to his continued improvement. I know we have a long road ahead of us. But at least now we have hope.
This has been by far the best thing I have been able to do for Liam since his diagnosis nearly a year ago. Thank you Generation Rescue!!!
