The role of nutrition for the proper growth and development of a child is well known, it becomes all the more imperative when a child suffers from Autism or ADHD or other disorders. Generally children are picky eaters and those suffering from ASD may also have few food intolerances too, hence these children may also suffer from nutritional deficiencies. They also suffer from frequent bouts of gastrointestinal troubles adding to their woes. Hence diet also pays an important role in these children.
Though many theories float regarding perfect diet for autistic children a diet which limits sugar intake, gluten and dairy products is recommended. Vitamins especially those belonging to B-complex, Vitamin D and omega 3 help the children in their overall development. Please contact the doctor for detailed advice on the diet.
