Podcast ‘Food and how it affects your child'

I recently recorded a podcast episode on food intolerance, based my book  Fed Up, for Chatabout Children with speech pathologist and children’s author Sonia Bestulic.


Before the interview, Sonia - perhaps because she is a writer herself -  sent me a list of questions that were some of the trickiest I’ve ever come across during my 25 years as an author.

The resulting podcast, according to Howard – for those who don’t know, my husband and food scientist Dr Howard Dengate – is ‘exhilarating and easy to listen to’.

The hardest question by far was:

“So many parents have written to you with their results; tell us about a couple of stories that stand out to you.”

At first I thought Sonia meant just speech issues – and we have plenty of those: speech delay, loud voice, stuttering, ASD (autistic) communication difficulties, and even dysphagia (slow eating and difficulty swallowing) that have responded dramatically to a change of diet.

But no, she was interested in the whole range of children’s behaviours that are affected by foods.

So I read through our thousands of reader success stories - often in tears, sharing the pain, joy and love as families discovered the difference in their child after a short time on their new diet – trying to pick only a few. It a very emotional moment when I shared them - and I managed to mention others during our chat, as well.

The podcast is now live https://chataboutchildren.com/food-and-how-it-affects-your-child/
