Tomorrow the nutritionist comes to talk about Owen’s diet. I am really excited to talk to her about the changes in Owen since I took him off milk and working on taking the gluten out of his diet too. I was a always taught the food pyramid is the way to go. I remember doing a project in second grade on the food pyramid. When Owen was born I knew that I wasn’t going to give him a lot of things like cookies, sweets and sugary drinks. I was going to give him healthy foods like milk, cheese and breads. Little did I know for Owen the food pyramid is all wrong. Taking him off milk was the best thing I could have done for him. The light in his eyes now is amazing. He is so much more focused. He has grown almost an inch and gained two pounds just in the last month I believe. I always joke that my baby had a six pack from all the exercise he does. Now I believe his belly leads him wherever he wants to go. That boy is hungry from morning to night now. This is a huge difference. So no longer am I a fan of the pyramid, well maybe the $25,000 pyramid but certainly not the food pyramid. I encourage you to look into diet for your kids. Milk may not be the answer for your child but changing foods my help. Never give up hope.
I'm Lynn Browder. Owen's Mommy. The best moments in time are when I get to see the smile on his face and that giggle come from his heart.
