I get asked about supplements a lot and specifically, "What is the best multivitamin to use on the Feingold Diet?" We don't use a multivitamin here for a few reasons. For one, most multivitamins for young kids (meaning ones that cannot swallow pills), are often the fruity gummy varieties, which are Feingold stage two. We try to stay away from stage two as much as possible so these don't work for us.

I had a good laugh today when I picked up my 3-year old from the nursery after my Bible study. I was told that the child care director said to tell me that I was no longer "allowed" to send in potato chips for my daughter for snack because the other kids wanted them. I could only bring in fruit or veggies or crackers. Now I might have been a little more open to this, had the director come to me and asked, "Is there any way you could send something other than potato chips for your daughter? It caused a little bit of a stir in class today."

I LOVE my dehydrator! I have an Excalibur 9-tray dehydrator. I bought it directly from the manufacturer for about $279 or so. I would also suggest buying a few tray liners along with your dehydrator. I have 7. I bought the Excalibur brand. You will need them if you make beef jerky or fruit leathers. I also use them for kale chips and bananas because it makes clean up easier.

With school starting soon, I've been getting requests for the vaccine exemption letter we use. I have this posted within a long post I did on "Why We Don't Vaccinate". But, some people have had trouble finding it so I thought I'd post it separately. This one is specific to Illinois so if you live in another state, please check with your state's requirements first. In Illinois, you have to use the word "spiritual" or "personal religious beliefs" at least three times in your letter. Of course, IL could change their policy at any time, so please check the IL Vaccine Awareness Coalition web site. In IL you can also get a letter of medical exemption written by your doctor. Good luck with that. Some doctors will sign one if your child has some autoimmune disease or something.

Ready for swimsuit season? My daughter is! She puts on her “swimming soup” as she calls it, and begs me to take her swimming. If you’re not as excited about summer, here are a few tips on how to slim down naturally.

When people hear all the dietary restrictions my kids have, the first question I get is, "What can they eat?", followed by "What do you feed them?" It's actually not all that different than what they were eating before, just without the gluten and dairy.
All Natural Mom

- I am a mom of 4 kids, ages 13, 10, 7, and 3. We started the Feingold Diet for my son in 2005 when he was 4 years old, then started GFCF (gluten and dairy free) and biomed in 2008 for my middle two. We deal with characteristics of ADHD, Tourette's, autism, seizures, and multiple food allergies. I am a Christ follower and seek to bring glory to God in all that I do.
