For many children with epilepsy, the only reliable way to control seizures is the ketogenic diet: a mathematically calculated, doctor-supervised plan that strictly limits both calories and liquid intake. Keto Kid: Helping Your Child Succeed on the Ketogenic Diet is a practical guide that enables families to successfully master this nutritional therapy, while making the experience as pleasant as possible for both parent and child. Written by Deborah Snyder, a family physician and mother of a four-year-old ''keto-kid,'' the book provides compassionate advice for parents transitioning to a lifestyle where one extra bite of food can have serious repercussions on a child's health.
