A Way To Beat The Heat

Noah loves snow cones! It keeps him cooled off and it's a great treat. We don't add any flavoring, it's just the shaved ice. But, he doesn't seemed bummed that it's missing the flavoring. He's really into being in charge of the ice shaving. I help him a little, but he does most of the work.
Have fun with your Keto Kid. Remember, eating shouldn't be the focus of any family, it's the time together that matters. Try shifting the focus and let your Keto Kid get involved!!
Stay cool! I love my Keto Kid!

My Kool Keto Kid

Summer is almost here! School is almost out! You all know that my Keto Kid has a genetic mutation known as GEFS+. He, like many other sodium channel epilepsy kids, does not regulate body temperature well at all. For several years, I just kept him inside the house. But, he is getting older and needs that physical exercise as well as the joy that comes from experiencing summer! A few weeks ago, at the end of Little League Season, the weather here in Northern California was HOT!! I'm talkin' 103 degrees! Yowza!! To keep my KetoKid Kool, I gave him a squirt bottle. Okay, so a few other spectators got squirted here and there. But, for the most part, Noah just kept himself cool. So if your little kiddo needs some cooling off this summer - hand him/her their own squirt bottle and let them experience summer.

A New Yogurt

Another great invention!! Dannon Light & Fit Carb & Sugar Control. It is sooo yummy! Noah loves it. We purchased the strawberry flavor as well as the vanilla. Both are creamy and terrific tasting. The best part is that even on the 4:1 ratio with only 1.9 grams of carb per meal, my Keto Kid can eat a lot in one meal. Log onto the Dannon website at to read more about this yogurt that is perfect for a Keto Kid. The website even has a store finder. Although many of the grocery stores near my home carry the Dannon Light & Fit line of products, they did not carry the Carb & Sugar Control. So, make sure you check the store finder on their website to find a location that sells the Carb & Sugar Control. Noah will be eating it not just as yogurt but for smoothies and freezing it like pudding pops for the summer!
