The ketogenic diet, which is very high in fats and low in carbohydrates, was first developed almost 80 years ago. It makes the body burn fat for energy instead of glucose. When carefully monitored by a medical team familiar with its use, the diet helps two out of three children who are tried on it and may prevent seizures completely in one out of three. It is a strict diet, and takes a strong commitment from the whole family. The ketogenic diet is not a do-it-yourself diet. It is a serious form of treatment that, like other therapies for epilepsy, has some side effects that have to be watched for.
The Keto Cookbook is a cookbook for those using the diet to treat epilepsy and other neurologic conditions. The ketogenic diet is extremely strict- where one extra bite of food can have serious repercussions on a child's health - and thus hard to maintain.

The Keto Cookbook contains 96 recipes grouped by breakfast and brunch, appetizers & snacks, lunch, dinner, and sweets and treats. The book includes a 16-page color insert illustrating each recipe. Since many children start on the Keto Diet before they can speak, the pictures of the meal and snack options will allow children to choose what they want. And help to overcome food refusal due to lack of variety of foods and/or child's loss of control over food options.

It will also address common eating personalities such as "grazers", children with texture aversions, the sweet tooth, unpredictable-eaters and adventurous-eaters. There will be options for all. Most parents of children on the ketogenic diet are busy and do not have the time or resources to experiment with different foods and preparation methods, so this book provides them with options that have already been tested and are both kid- and Registered Dietician- approved.

There will be symbols on the recipes to indicate which food personality for which they are most appropriate. Or how long they take. For example, a recipe for cookies would have a symbol indicating that a "sweet-tooth" child may like this recipe. Allergy information will also be available for the top eight most common children's allergens. The book will also provide tips for "keto-proofing" your life, from the kitchen, to the car, to the classroom. Sample shopping lists and vacation guidelines will also help families prepare for the unexpected. It will include sample letters for getting through airport security, guidelines for visits to the hospital and outpatient procedures, and ways to prevent accidental "breaking" of the ketogenic diet.

  • 96 kid and dietician tested and approved recipes for the keto diet presented in full color

  • Allergy information for the eight most common allergens

Seems like a great book, but everything is in grams and I don't have time to weigh everything on a gram scale. So..... not a good recipe book for me.

This is more about product placement than compiling good keto recipes. Bacon may not have carbohydrates but it is known to get its flavour from injected chemicals. Many of the recipes suggest using Hellmanns Mayonnaise - come on. Suggesting that flax be obtained from flax meal ignores the fact that cracked or ground flax goes stale within 15 minutes. Why not do it right?
Recommends the usage of artificial sweetener. Again no carbs but what are the authors priorities. The Easy Meal Assembly chart at the beginning suggests low carb high protein food. That is not keto.
