    Default Failsafe diet

    Is anyone on the failsafe diet from fedup.com.au ? If you are do you have any tips for someone that is considering starting it? (In the hope that it might help my son who is not yet diagnosed but is suspected of being on the autism spectrum). I know that it might not help but it can't hurt to make the healthy choices right?

    We haven't gone full failsafe but we avoid most artificial colours flavours and preservatives and that's enough to help DS. There are a few that DS can tolerate without going nuts like the preservative in vegemite and dried fruits. Definitely print out the pocket list of things to avoid or there are some apps that you can get. Good luck. Like you said, healthy choices is good

    We were totally failsafe for over three years. It was initially quite daunting but I found a groove pretty quickly and it was so worthwhile for our DD.

    My tips would be to go and see a dietician that is familiar with the failsafe diet (you can find a list on the website) and have them support you through the initial elimination diet and the subsequent salicylate, amine and glutamate challenges.

    I used this shopping list as my supermarket bible
    http://fedup.com.au/information/shop...device=desktop

    This blog has some great recipes
    http://realfailsafemeals.blogspot.com.au/?m=1

    And this online shop was great for special treats and snacks
    http://www.allergytrain.com.au/Home/...1/Default.aspx

    I also have some recipes that I made up over time so would be happy to pass them on at any time.

    Also happy to answer any questions either here or via pm

    Thanks so much that's fantastic information, I might need to msg you for recipes coz I'm not a very good cook especially not inventive in the kitchen 😃

    Default Failsafe diet

    I know this is a very old thread but thought I'd stick my head in.

    I've just started reading Fed Up in preparation for doing failsafe with my kids. I am terrified. My kids are going to hate me and I'm pretty sure they would rather starve than eat some of the stuff that we will be eating.

    Would love some support/encouragement/advice if anyone is still around.

    I have a very knowledgable friend on FB who is going to hold my hand during it and who has already added me to lots of groups but I'd love some more support to :-)
