Not so good

Today Bright Eyes threw his first tantrum about going to preschool. He wouldn't get out of the car, so I had to grab him and then carry him kicking and screaming through the gate. The preschool teachers got him to calm down by getting out the train set - a surefire winner.

But we're all a bit concerned. He has been going downhill for the last four weeks in terms of mood and irritability and tension.

I have a dreadful feeling that what I once read about the GF/CF diet is coming true. It said that for some children, GF/CF works for a number of months, but then the digestive tract starts to react to other types of starches like riceflour and cornflour etc.

The solution is to follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which basically cuts out all sugars and starches. But that sounds really tough. I'm not sure I can do it.

I bought a cookbook by Sally Fallon today - Nourishing Traditions - which might give me some more ideas and see what we can do.
