When pediatricians, allergists, dietitians and nutritionists make recommendations to moms, it could be confusing and overwhelming. Cooking without fat, using more protein, roasting vegetables, eliminating carbohydrates, avoiding gluten…. these and hundreds more are instructions that the professionals suggest you to follow. But the application of these directions can be hard for moms who do not cook, who do not know much about food, who do not have time to plan and shop, and who have picky eaters. I feel so bad for these families who are paralyzed because the suggestions from the professionals seem daunting. Working with a chef who understands children and brings years of experience and knowledge can help families find easy meals that work for those affected with and by allergies, aversions and special diets.
