When it comes to managing Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a balanced and nutritious diet is important for overall health and well-being.
Nina's Health Protocol:
Include nutrient-dense foods such as leafy greens, colorful vegetables, berries.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines), chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts.
Some research suggests that there may be a link between gut health and ASD symptoms. Including probiotic-rich foods such as yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi may be beneficial for gut health.
Limit Processed Foods.
Pay attention to any food sensitivities or allergies your child may have, as they can contribute to behavioral issues. Establish regular meal times and routines. This can help individuals with ASD feel more comfortable and maintain a sense of structure.
Ensure proper hydration by encouraging the consumption of water throughout the day.
