    Hi everyone!

    Well, you are always so helpful and resourceful! After reading all the

    posts, I bought an extra freezer a while back. I have read that some

    of you freeze cheese and milk. It is better (or required) that the

    cheese is shredded? Does it work better for some cheeses than others

    (like soft vs. hard cheese?). How does it affect texture?



    And as far as milk is concerned- does it change the flavor or texture

    once it is thawed?



    I am so curious. I would love to stock up and have extra on hand, but

    there is not enough room in the fridge!



    Thanks, Michelle in MA

    My son is getting married this Fall to a wonderful girl...she isbringing 2 children into the marriage (our first grandchildren). The little girl 5is quite "busy" and unfocused but not diagnosed ADHD. The 10 year old little boy has been diagnosed ADHD and is on medication. I do not know the name of the meds but could find out. Both children are thin(genetics) and very picky eaters (choice)- the medicationthat the boy is on has caused him to lose his desire to eat and he's getting too thin- he looks like healmost has an eating disorder (which I guess he does in a way). My question is to those of you with ADHD friends/children in your homes- does anyone have information on "trigger" foods that seem to set off your children? I know sugar and food coloring are typically linked toADHD, but are there other things we should watch out for? His mother and I are hoping to try to
    managehis ADHD (and his sister's ) by changing his diet and getting him off the medication so he has an appetite again. Any opinions, suggestions or even guesses are much appreciated! Thanks! Lisa G.

    I am a Registered Polysomnography Technologist...(sleep Tech) and we see alot of Children who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD that have some sort of sleep disorder. You said that the child is thin so that alot of times rules out sleep apnea...but not necessarily. Does he snore? still have his tonsils?

    Also she can check out his sleep hygiene. Does he get enough sleep. Sleep at regular times etc.

    kids are the opposite of adults. When we are tired we act lethargic...dont want to do anything etc...Children on the other hand tend to seem restless, cannot sit still, and are basically bouncing off the walls. This is a way to keep themselves stimulated so they do not appear tired.

    Just an idea to look into.

    I myself have "self" diagsnosed with ADD and simply cannot stay on track and it drives me crazy. My best friend is a Pharmacist and she is diagnsoed ADD but cannot tolerate any of the meds....so I guess I would say we are functioning ADDers...lol

    <div style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:10pt;">My son has ADHD and we feed him only natural foods (if you can pick it off a plant) and unprocessed meats, unprocessed flour...pretty much that means no prepackaged ANYTHING!

    Also, getting DAILY exercise for a MINIMUM of 1 hour...and especially if it's outdoors, it's worked wonders for Dylan.

    There are also books out there that show you how to deal with ADHD behaviors, as the standard punishments and disciplines rarely work on them.

    Google the Feingold diet if you really want to get serious. I've heard nothing but awesome things about it.

    My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder. She was on Trileptal, Adderall and Clonidine. I changed doctors and now she is on Ritalin and clonidine only. I would also like to know about alternative treatments because I would like to take her off medicines. My daughter was getting increasingly worse in terms of aggression and hyperactivity but now is also extremely picky and I will fix her six meals a night if she eats only a little from each one because she is such a poor eater. How old are your kids? My daughter is 4 years old.

    From my experience, cream cheese does NOT freeze well. All other cheese does freeze good. Shredding cheese before is a great idea. Not only because of the crumbling affect but, also you can divvy out the amount you need and not the whole thing. If you do not want to shredit, you can cube it. Milk does fine. It looks gross when it is frozen but, goes back to normal when thawed.
