Kyle's 11th birthday
It was an excellent fit, the birthday fell on a Friday and we invited godfathers and friends.
Kyle loves music.
On Fridays, we often have a therapy day, which means Kyle stays at home and gets to sleep in longer. Around 11 o'clock, we head to the physiotherapy session, and he is in great shape and highly motivated. For Kyle's birthday, the physiotherapist came up with something special, and it was truly remarkable. A CD played the song "Happy Birthday to you" in about 12 different languages. He was already smiling during the English version, and he laughed out loud during the French lyrics. He adores his current physiotherapist, who has been with us for 6 years now. With her, he gets to do trampoline exercises. For that, we place Kyle in a harness system, similar to a skydiver, and suspend it from the ceiling hooks.
We have a fondness for cheesecake in our family, and we try it in many variations. Ambition wanted me to try my hand at a ketogenic cheesecake variation for Kyle's birthday.
Chocolate and ice cream- Elisabeth loves it
Do I have to give up sweets on a ketogenic diet?
I already asked myself this question at the beginning of Elisabeth's dietary change. Even today, I often hear from other parents who are starting the diet that these little treats can often cause a lot of worry. Especially with young children, I often feel that this is a big issue: Seemingly on every corner, I see different sweet snacks - gummy bears, chocolate or bars of all kinds - in numerous colorful packages.
Nina's story- Epilepsy and the ketogenic diet
My name is Nina, I'm 30 years young, and I'm part of a loud, large, and loving blended family. I live together with my boyfriend in Upper Bavaria. There, we have created a beautiful home where we enjoy hosting friends and family. My greatest passion is baking cakes and pastries. I also find great joy in coming up with creative recipe ideas. In my free time, I like to hang out with friends in the city, go cycling, or simply relax and put my feet up :). On hot summer days, you'll find me by the lake, soaking up the sun. Professionally, I work as a speech therapist in a school and in a kindergarten for individuals with special needs. I love my job. I can empathize particularly well with children with epilepsy and their parents because I myself have epilepsy. Today, I can openly talk about it, which wasn't always the case.
