In honor of Autism Awareness Month this April, Coromega® and Generation Rescue have joined forces to create an Autism Grocery Checklist of foods and essential nutrients shown effective at easing symptoms of autism.
I wanted share this checklist with my readers to spread awareness of healthful foods and healing nutrients, which have shown to be so valuable to effective autism treatment.
Developed by leading omega-3 researcher and scientific advisory board member at Coromega, Dr. Douglas Bibus, and autism nutrition expert and founder of Nourishing Hope, Julie Matthews, this Autism Grocery Checklist is a tool designed to help families with children on the spectrum:
Autism Grocery Checklist :
Gluten-Free Grains & Flours
Casein-Free (and Soy-Free) Milk Substitutes
Healthy Fats & Oils
~Omega-3 fatty acids
~Meat & fish
Healthy Produce (Organic Preferred)
Vitamins, Minerals & Digestive Enzymes
~Sodium, potassium & calcium
~Herbs & spices
~Artificial colors, flavorings, preservatives & sweeteners
~MSG, trans fats & high fructose corn syrup
Coromega’s delicious line of omega-3 products are designed to keep both kids and adults healthy, without the fishy aftertaste. My son, Braxton does not have Autism, but is definitely hyper active and probably ADHD, although he has not been officially diagnosed. I strongly believe in the benefits of Omega’s for his developing brain, however.
Disclaimer: I received samples of these products to review and to keep. All opinions are my own.
