It started with a Crohn’s diagnosis four years ago. We put Caleb on a diet that eliminates all gluten, grains, sugar, complex carbohydrates (rice and potato for example) and preservatives called The Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
Caleb has been on the SCD diet ever since and is doing great. During this time, we realized not only how many kids are on diets like the SCD, but how difficult it is for kids socially. Because they can’t eat what their friends are eating, many often feel like outcasts. As Caleb puts it, he just wants to feel “like a regular kid again.”
