If you have a child with a special diet, whether from autism, food allergies or something else, you know how hard it is to meet the daily demands of making meals, attending parties and eating out in restaurants that are “safe” and contain the ingredients you need.  One diet in particular is the gluten-free, casein-free diet that can help kids with autism.  It’s not a cure per se, but the diet does help soothe certain behaviors, according to moms and experts.

One mom who knows first hand about the benefits of the gluten-free, casein-free diet is Lynn Yeager, co-founder of Cookie Momsters, a Florida- based dessert company that makes and sells cookies and muffins for autistic and allergy prone kids.

This week’s podcast features an interview with Lynn, who talks about her struggles with her son, Jacob, all of the different cookies and muffins at her store front and online bakery, and the recent controversial report refuting the gluten-free, casein-free diet (ABC News, Jan. 5, 2010) as a solution for autism.

Cookie Momsters is a great resource for parents who need gluten-free, casein-free cookies, which you can order for everyday living or for special occasions.  Even “civilian” moms can order these products because they taste great, are healthy, and make a great option when inviting autistic or food allergy children to your house for a birthday party or playdate.  In fact, one in 110 children today have autism, according to Autism Speaks.

To order the cookies and muffins, go to Cookie  You can also get recipes, blog and other pertinent information.

Cookie Momsters products are available in select Whole Foods and other specialty markets in Florida.  Go the website to find a location.  If you want Cookie Momsters in a food store near you, print out the pre-made form at the Cookie Momsters website and bring it into your store today (scroll all the way to the bottom on the home page).

Other sites that Lynn suggests are:  Talk About Curing Autism Now, which is put together by moms to help you get started with the gluten-free, casein-free diet, and Allergy
