One easy way to do the grocery shopping is to NooCube look for items with the label Parve, the kosher symbol for dairy-free. Jews who observe a strict Kosher diet cannot mix meat products and milk products, which is why they need to know if their food has dairy in it or not. The Parve system has been implemented for many years and should make it easy for you to start your child's gluten-free casein-free diet.You can also use almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and rice milk as alternatives to animal milk. These products can be found in specialty food sections or the refrigerated section. Chocolate flavored soy milk is popular among kids, and comes in small boxes they can bring to school.Since cereal and pancakes are out of the question (unless almond milk is used as a substitute for cow's milk), try serving high-protein foods for breakfast. Hash browns, eggs, breakfast meats (bacon, ham, etc.), or breakfast cereals with soy protein should do the trick.Eating at restaurants is a little more challenging and requires some vigilance. At the very start, make it clear to your server that your child has a casein intolerance and cannot eat food with dairy in it. This includes breaded food, food cooked in butter, or food with cheese and other dairy products. Your server should make suggestions on what foods are free from dairy.Finally, a casein intolerance does not mean your child has to be deprived of cakes and baked treats. Organic supermarkets like Trader Joe's carry dairy-free brownie mixes and cake mixes - just make sure you read the ingredients on the box. There are also many dairy-free cupcake and brownie recipes on the internet. You'd be surprised at how many casein-free options there are for pastries and baked goodies.With time, your child will get used to a dairy-free lifestyle. It's all just a matter of finding delicious dairy-free alternatives and teaching your child to make smart decisions about what he or she eats.Inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are not the only problems experienced by children and adults with ADHD. Just as the symptoms of ADHD do not go away during adulthood, they do not go away at night, either. Many ADHD sufferers have to contend with difficulty sleeping, staying asleep, or waking up. Sleep problems are an easily overlooked symptom or ADHD comorbid disorder because they tend to appear later in life; some experience them as teenagers, while others experience sleep disturbances as young as ten. Those who take ADHD medication have it just as bad - insomnia is a common side effect of stimulant drugs.
