Diet as a means of controlling a hyperactive child is a matter of often heated controversy. For some children its effects are dramatic. Ann Tydeman is the mother of a hyperactive child and by the time her son was two years old she was on the brink of despair. At her doctor's suggestion she tried a strict diet which eliminated all foods thought to aggravate hyperactivity. After four days her baby's behaviour improved almost miraculously. Nonetheless, she has sensibly included a note of advice on the need for individual requirements. In this book the recipes contain no artificial colourings or flavours - a bonus, also, for those concerned about adulteration by artificial additives in modern foods. These recipes are appetising, simple to prepare, and appealing to all members of the family. They obviate the need to prepare a special diet and are designed to meet all needs, from a snack to a party. These tasty recipes will be welcomed by all those who prefer an alternative life style; they will be a blessing for many parents of hyperactive children.
