Ketogenic diet

Nothing is impossible


There are so many things we would like to share about the ketogenic diet. Monica has been on this diet since 2015, and much has changed - both in terms of meal preparation with new products on the market and in managing everyday life or special occasions. Monica has always been a cheerful and positive person.

Monica's Profile

Name: Monica

Mother's Name: Federica

Country: Italy

Since: 2015

Favorite Food: Pizza piadina

Nothing is impossible.

When we learned that the only therapy for her illness was the ketogenic diet, we rolled up our sleeves and tried to figure out how we could help her. There was limited information available, and very few people were using the diet.

The initial steps

Monica never had trouble accepting the diet. In the beginning, the menus were very strict and repetitive, and we had to follow the menus created by dietitians. However, over time, we had the opportunity to use an app, allowing us to create menus tailored to what Monica liked or what was interesting for the rest of the family. For example, Saturday night is reserved for pizza. Monica makes her ketogenic piadina, while the rest of the family prepares traditional pizza.

She understands very well why she has to follow this diet and respects the rules without complaining or making exceptions. As parents, we always try to add creativity to the prepared dishes - after all, we eat with our eyes! We've created menus for special occasions, birthdays, Christmas, and school presentations.

Every moment was always accompanied by ketogenic dishes or desserts approved by dietitians. I have always strived to create menus for her or adapt the same menu in various ways. We've matched our regular menu with the ketogenic one: tiramisu, cheesecake, pumpkin pie, Christmas stollen, lasagna, risotto, pancakes...

Monica now cooks independently

Now that Monica is older, she cooks her own menus, and it's a great joy to see how independent she is. She feels responsible for what she prepares with dedication and attention. After all this time, I can say that the ketogenic diet has no limits for us anymore


Francesca's Advice:

  1. Never give up!
  2. Always involve your child in meal planning.
  3. In difficult situations, don't hesitate to seek support.

Antonia Starts School - The School and the Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet in children represents a special dietary approach, which comes with several challenges in everyday life. Since there are only a few schools willing to accommodate these specific needs, one should start looking for a suitable option early on. Schools capable of supporting the ketogenic diet often have extremely small class sizes and a higher staff-to-student ratio. Consequently, our choice quickly fell on a school with a focus on physical and motor skills development, where all types of school diplomas are possible.
