introduced it. Basically he's been MSG free for years. Started kicking off and trying to steal Pringles at school (another boy has them). So I said rather than keep him off them without being sure they were a problem we should trial them. He purposely banged his head on each of our concrete steps yesterday but I thought it mught be the moon/heat whatever. But this afternoon its been dreadful.
Hope it soon settles Jimjams. Would he wear kneepads, the sort you get for skateboarders? and will the school be able to stop other children waving things like Pringles around? Our school is 'nut-free' but I suppose 'MSG-free' is rather a tall order!
msg free is harder than gluten free- it's in everything. He keeps coming back with sentence strips made up for I want yellow crisps so I suspect they're the offenders- ready salted (only ones msg free) are red!
Ah well he ate 2 fromgae frais for the fisrt time in 6 months yesterday. yay!
ds1 is completely off the wall this month with the full moon - but that wakes him up- in fact he's lying in bed at the moment so must have been up a lot last night (he's got 10 mins before the taxi). The headbanging is always food related.
Have you tried epsom salt baths to help draw out the toxins?
MSG causes J to have major meltdowns and he also gets a white ring around his mouth, which I know a couple of other people who have kids with MSG intollerances get to. Quite how it causes the whitening gawd only knows, but its a sure sign to us that he has had the dreaded MSG and a meltdown will occur.
I know Davzmum, who posts here sometimes, has a son who reacts in the same way as J to MSG and I asked her about the white ring around J's mouth and she said her son gets it to. So I tottled off and tried to find out why it happens but hit a brick wall.
