"What should an autistic child eat?"
Autism is a disorder that is affecting more and more people. Children with autism do not grow normally. The symptoms of this disease are seen in the period of 18 months to 3 years of birth. Special child is more restless than other children, does not pay attention to work properly, speaks late, more problems are seen. Most children do not want to eat, resulting in low growth.
Today I'm going to talk about what kind of special children's diet should be:
Foods that contain gluten and casein should not be given to children, foods that contain gluten are: flour-based foods, barley, bread, cakes, noodles, chanachur, biscuits, chips, etc. Also baby chocolate, processed food, outside chicken fry (flour is used) these cannot be given. If there is extra sugar, preservative food, coloring substances in the food menu, they should be avoided. As an alternative, children can be given Chira, Muri, rice or potato, sweet potato.
Dairy products (milk and dairy foods such as cheese, butter, yogurt, milk) all contain casein, which can cause digestive problems in special babies and increase hyperactivity, so stop dairy products and check for any changes in the baby's behavior. If hyperactivity is reduced, then the baby should be kept away from dairy foods, as an alternative to this, the baby should be given coconut milk, almond milk, eggs or calcium supplement will improve their condition.
Symptoms of autism in children with hyperactivity, difficulty communicating with others, anxiety, sudden onset of agitation, and lack of omega-3 fatty acids. If the baby's diet does not make up for the lack of omega-3 fatty acids, the child's risk of developing autism increases 2-4 times. Marine fish are rich in omega-3 fats, so giving these fish or omega-3 supplements to children improves their condition.
Autistic children have a deficiency of vitamins and minerals in their body, so they need to eat more vitamin-rich foods to make up for this deficiency. Coconut water, bananas, magnesium and calcium combination foods will improve the condition of these children.
Parents have to take extra care of their children from an early age. They have to practice talking to them, smiling and gesturing. Only then will it be understood whether their behavior is normal.
Autistic children need to be identified at an early stage. They need to be taken to the right place quickly and cared for and brought up with special care and be aware of their diet.
