Hello! I have a very picky 3 year old daughter with Autism. She is allergic to milk, eggs, soy, tree and mold mixes. We are currently using DariFree milk, and try our best to keep dairy products out of her diet. This is very hard, since her younger sister uses cow's milk, and she will take sissy's cup away, and drink her milk. We are currently not on the GFCF diet, and are on a VERY limited budget. Soy seems to be the "go to" product on most of the foods I have read about on this diet. Can anyone help me find some very affordable alternatives that my picky daughter will eat? She LOVES chips, cereal, and other crunchy things, and especially things like Cheetos, and Doritos. Are there any affordable products out there with the same flavor, without these ingredients? It might be helpful to mention that she also has DiGeorge Syndrome. When we met with the Geneticist, he told us "those diets are crap, and don't make any difference, Autism isn't caused from foods, it's a nuerological disorder" so my husband and I are skeptical. Please also share some of your stories, and help me help my duaghter! Thanks and God Bless!
