    Thank you for add this section. It will really come in handy for me with one having his tonsils out.

    Please add Low Sodium as a forum topic! Recipes are badly needed! So many people have high blood pressure (DH) or heart problems (me) and the docs are after absolutely everyone to lower the amount of salt in their food, even children, to help prevent problems later in life.

    I am willing & anxious to can, freeze, cook fresh, or make jar mixes for meals; for two especially. Wal-Mart & others are carrying more and more low sodium things like broth, diced canned tomatoes and some other basic ingredients and I find others at a local health food market such as canned kidney beans. Even Lay’s has come out with half the sodium potato chips and hopefully others will make an effort to offer us a healthier choice.

    High sodium content in canned, frozen or restaurant foods probably causes more health problems than any other ingredient. By continuing to use those foods we set our children up for health issues, and even children can have blood pressure that is way too high for them.

    There is more fat and sodium in the recipes on these forums than anybody should have! Let’s get healthy, not just full!

    i think some of the recipes (especially of late) are geared more to towards the holidays.
    one thing i have done to cut the fat in the foods i make is to use applesauce or plain yogurt in place of have of the fat called for. i have been cutting out the salt in the foods and using more herbs to spice along with powders.

    it is amazing to actually taste food without the salt.

    Lowering the sodium in any recipe is easy with Morton’s salt substitute and the Mrs. Dash products. We don’t miss any flavor, but our cardiologist is happy with the results! I’d still like to find more recipes, though, for things to make from scratch.

    LOL, Leave it to me to be the oddball in the bunch but….. I need recipes that are high in protein, calories and fat. My daughter (11 years old) is Failure To Thrive and we are trying desperately to increase her weight.

    I know some tips such as adding dry milk powder to things, adding butter to things etc. but I’m not much of a cook to be honest and I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas that she will like. She doesn’t eat beans at all which really makes it hard to be frugal and cut down on meat.

    Any help would be wonderful!

    at her age, failure to thrive is usually not due to a physical condition. is there a diagnosis for the underlying condition? The reason that I ask is that I’ve had a child that had failure to thrive because of really severe allergies, and knowing the medical condition helps plan.

    I’ll be glad to help you any way I can.
