A New Solution to Give Your Autistic Child Their Daily Nutrients
As a parent of a child with autism, you know all too well that assuring that they get their daily nutrients can be a nightmare. And you’re not alone; 70-percent of parents with children on the autism spectrum report problems with their child’s extremely limited eating habits.
Researches are still trying to understand what causes their picky eating behavior. However, we do find that influential organizations, such as the Autism Speaks research project, have been working to develop new behavioral methods to address the underlying anxiety and sensory issues associated with food. The project is focused primarily on older children whose tendencies and aversions are of high health concern.
Why is nutrition so crucial for children with autism?
Inadequate nutrition in adolescent years can be detrimental to a person’s overall health. The low intake of calcium and protein are the most harmful to the development of a child with autism. Calcium is vital for building strong bones, and daily protein is essential for growth and mental development.
World J Gastroenterol reviewed multiple studies and concluded that there is "a strong relationship and significant correlation between eating problems and gastrointestinal dysfunction [in children with autism]."
This may mean that some of your child's more extreme aversions could be related to the pain and discomfort from gas, bloating, diarrhea, or acid reflux and their belief that it is linked to the food you serve. If parents can solve the underlying problem, it may be possible to control their emotions and get them to eat more foods.
What types of daily nutrients are autistic children rejecting?
Most parents find their child's sensitivity to tastes, colors, smells and textures the most significant barriers to a balanced diet. Common dislikes include fruits, vegetables, and slippery, soft foods. Getting your child to try new foods — especially those that with a softer texture — may seem nearly impossible. You may find that your child avoids certain foods or even entire food groups.What is the solution to get them their daily nutrients?
Supplements are the solution. But not all vitamins are equal. Frunutta vitamins were specifically designed for families with kids with autism.
Frunutta was founded by Dr. Alavi, a father who needed to help his autistic son get his nutrients. Dr. Alavi spent years trying all types of absorption methods: swallowing vitamins, IM vitamin shots creams, and ointments. He struggled to get his young son to swallow the pills as he would spit them out and they would have to crush and force him to swallow them only to find they were not absorbing through his intestinal tract. Not being able to communicate with his son made the shots so traumatizing that his son would often avoid him fearing the next delivery.
This was heartbreaking for Dr. Alavi and his wife. After trying so many products in the market place and not providing any relief to their son, Dr. Alavi sought out to find a nutraceutical expert to create the cleanest, purest product to help his son. Dr. Alavi had no idea the scope of this project or undertaking, thankfully so because today Frunutta exists to not only help his son but millions of families like theirs with this same problem.
Dr. Alavi brought together a team of physicians and a nutraceutical expert and created a quick-dissolving under the tongue vitamin that absorbs directly into the bloodstream. This way he could place it in his son’s mouth, and even if the son would attempt to spit it out, most of it was already dissolved. Dr. Alavi found in subsequent drug tests that his son was now getting 90% of his daily nutrients.
Frunutta’s pure and clean ingredients help provide a simple delivery method for absorption and eliminate all of the additives and impurities found in every swallowed pill and other melts.
Dr. Alavi wanted something so simple that every family could have an easier experience making sure their child was properly nourished.
No swallowing. No water. No complaints.
