That go crazy with some foods? Master 5 and 3 are really bad with a lot of food,master 5 especially. Before I cottoned onto this master 5 was out of control! I now make 99% of his food from scratch and he's like a different kid!
Every time we go the shops he has to say hi to Santa. Each and every time Santa tries to give him a lollipop,master 5's response? "no thanks Santa lollipops make me go crazy"
Or if someone does give him any food he will ALWAYS ask me if it's ok to have. If its not I will swap it for a safe food:)
Love to hear from anyone else that has this.

That's really good. original.gif

When DD#1 was young we discovered that any form of chocolate (cake, biscuit or actual chocolate) sent her crazy. She would go so hyper with a weird giggle and then start crying and then hyper again etc. Her teacher at school didn't believe me so gave her a tiny sliver of cake when it was someone's birthday one afternoon. And well, lets just say she never did it again. LOL I was called into the classroom because she couldn't get DD#1 to leave! I walked in and she was running around the room  in a circle and giggling being so weird LOL. I managed to get her to come with me and 50 meters later at the gate she was beside herself in tears, then at the car she was crazy again. She was up and down basically until it came out of her system. Now that she is a teenager she is glad to be over that strange food reaction.

Then bread with 282 or vinegar as a preservative sends all 3 of my girls emotional. And MSG or MSG like additives send them hyper.

Plus we discovered DD#2 is allergic to something found in some lollies. We don't do lollies much but when we do they are usually natural confectionary company. First exposure to a different brand with just 1 jelly baby and she ended up with more than 20 hives and throat swelling. We thought it was just that one brand but had a similar reaction to another brand too. So, she is really good and will ask me if it's ok. Even if it's still in it's packaging and she knows its a safe brand she still asks.

Wow that's really scary re the throat swelling!master 5's reaction to "bad" food is out of control behavior,violent,screamin,bouncing off walls etc! We went to sizzles one night for tea,let's just say it took me two days for it to be out of his system. He still has the odd meltdown,but now it's just very much 5 year old behavior.
It does feel like I'm in the kitchen all the time tho lol

Yes, DS is very sensitive to chocolate and food colourings. he is not that good at refusing things yet but he is starting to recognise when his behaviour has been affected by additives.

One word. FAILSAFE.

My children are completely different beings when our diet is clean biggrin.gif

I've looked at fail safe only a little bit. Golden syrup is used a lot-master 5 goes nuts on that and I think fruit is a no go with fail safe? He's great with fruit:)

#10 EBeditor

He is 5, muminbusiness.

We aren't failsafe but do make our own bread and buy snacks etc which have no colours or preservatives. 319/320 seems to be bad for us too.

Won't eat dark chocolate or brussel sprouts either.

DD2 reacted to 282.  Three days out of her diet, she slept through the night. Before, she would wake up to six times a night to pee but couldnt pee.

Do you mean 3 days after her fail safe diet had finished?

Three days after taking it out of her diet.  It was quite remarkable.  It was then that we actively started looking into food intolerances.  We did the failsafe diet and as a result have found that DD2 has a moderate reaction to MSG and natural MSG.  We dont have cauliflower or brocoli in the same meal etc as the build up is quite remarkable.  There isnt much too her (all legs) and she is very slight in frame.

As a matter of course, we have eliminated colours and I cringe this time of year with candy canes.  The Girls in general are really good and know how crappy they feel after eating stuff.  Occasionally yes, but 9/10 times they just wont go there.

Good luck.

We sent a bag of white marshmallows and milk bottles to school with DD to give to her teacher. Everytime she got a candy cane in a card, she was allowed to "trade" her teacher for two lollies that she could safely eat.

I liked not even having them come into the house, and it also gave DD the advantage of eating a treat immediately like the other kids could.

My DS reacts to so much stuff - basically any colourings, flavourings or preservatives.

Things that are particular bad for him are: lollies, softdrinks, cordials, breath mints, cured meats like salami etc, packaged biscuits.

Pretty much anything not made from scratch at home  original.gif

Yep, I avoid colours/flavours/preservatives etc with my boys too. DS1 in particular loses control if he consumes them and he's well aware of it. He always used to check foods with me first, but now he's aware himself of what he can or can't eat and self-monitors.

DS was getting so grumpy, almost like out of control when he was having a home brand ice cream and ham in his sandwiches every day. We actually look him off dairy as well and saw a huge change. Dairy has been gradually reintroduced and I don't think that was the problem.

The failsafe diet has pears as the only safe fruit to eat.

fail safe has been amazing for us too.  I have relaxed over Christmas and the bad behaviour has definitely returned.

#23 soapy

Posted 22 December 2012 - 03:28 PM

Thanks! The kids are loving pears at the moment but so I am glad that is the case as DS is so fussy and has been having 'mood' issues.
