USEFUL TIPS AND ADVICE FROM ABR FOR YOUR CHILD WITH CEREBRAL PALSY – part 3

Coconut oil
is a very nutritious oil that possesses as many beneficial nutritional qualities.
All children should consume it. 
It helps to improve the digestive system and thus prevents various stomach and digestion-related problems including irritable bowel syndrome.
The saturated fats present in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties and help in dealing with various bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can cause indigestion.
It also helps in the absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
The fatty acids in coconut oil are turned into ketones, which readily cross the blood-brain barrier to provide instant energy to the brain.
Ketones are also known to reduce seizures
Make sure that all oils are non- hydrogenated and of good quality.

Delicious way to turn coconut oil into a candy!
Being attentive to your child’s diet doesn’t mean depriving your child of the small pleasures in life.
Here is a candy recipe with high nutritional value … your child will love it!
Raw candy
  • 250 grams of nuts
  • 250 grams of dates
  • 250 grams of coconut flakes
Grind to a fine powder and add:
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons coconut cream
  • 2 Tablespoons raw cream / cocoa butter
Mix. If your child eats mashed food, give it in small amounts using a spoon. If he/she can ingest solid foods, shape the candy into balls and refrigerate for several hours.
You should also give your child flaxseed oil every day, as fresh as possible.
Purchase it in small bottles and keep it in the refrigerator.  Also use it raw on food.
​​​​​​​As they are high in dietary fibre, ground flaxseeds can help ease the passage of stools and thus relieve constipation, a common problem in children with Cerebral Palsy.
