I have a gorgeous 5 year old son who is ASD and also has had a lot of very aggressive meltdowns. My close friend Debbie recommended I look at his diet and specifically amines, salicylates and glutamates. I found the courage as it’s been a very tough 6 months with him to finally look at all of this - we are under a dietician and have seen huge improvements with reducing and removing a lot of these foods in his everyday. So much less aggression and better behaviour and communication. When he eats any of these foods I see a nearly instant reaction and negative behaviour.

It is a work in progress and I am using a modified elimination diet. I would highly recommend you looking further into this as you can. I have found Sue Dengate Failsafe group on Facebook to be very helpful and supportive – Brenda
