It is a diet pattern used for management of seizure disorders. The goals of nutrition intervention for the child with a seizure disorder are to promote optimal growth and development, to prevent or correct nutritional anomalies, and to minimize the negative impact of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) on nutritional status.
At Healthy Living we offer individualized dietary modifications for children with seizure disorders based on a comprehensive nutrition assessment.
The assessment includes an evaluation of the child’s food intake, growth pattern, activity level, motor and cognitive function and development, and the nutritional impact of medical interventions for seizure control.
The ketogenic diet has been successfully used to control a wide variety of seizure types in children of all ages, from infancy to late adolescence.
