Very Informative Interview with UK Resident on Autism, Gluten, Books and More – Vicky Warren Speaks Openly

1. Tell me about you and your background and how you are involved in the area of gluten-free, autism etc.

I used to be a nurse and midwife before David and I got married in 1969 – we then went on to have 5 daughters between 1972 and 82! I first became aware of having difficulties in digesting wheat within 24 hours of giving birth to Naomi my oldest daughter in 1972, and with each successive child birth the problem got worse, eventually leading to my doctor sending me to hospital for allergy tests, which proved nothing!! It wasn’t until my 4th daughter was born in 1978 that I finally got round to doing an exclusion diet and guess what my symptoms disappeared! Since then I have been wheat free and since 1998 I have been totally gluten free. Unfortunately since going down with *ME/CFS (Alternate names/abbreviations for chronic fatigue syndrome) 2002 I have had to deal with a lot of food allergies and exclusion is always the best way to deal with it, but I have discovered that quite a lot of these allergies/intolerances are transient which is quite interesting so my diet goes up and down as to what I can and can’t eat – but gluten is always a complete no no.

Getting the Kids to Listen: Danny the Dragon Author Offers Some Tips

I was sent this lovely article written and published recently after a brief interview

by reseacher and writer Robert Bell.

I thought I’d share this with all of you

It’s time for dinner and you’ve called to your children three times so far to turn off the TV and come to the table to eat.  You start using threats of coming into the living room yourself to turn off the television, to ban TV for the rest of the night, or to eat their dinners for them, but they still don’t come. Sound familiar?

Tina Turbin – featured on the “Garden of the Soul” radio show segment entitled, “Creating a Bright Future Through Children’s Literature”

Lynn Serafinn, host of the “Garden of the Soul” radio show, had the pleasure of interviewing two children’s authors, Tina Turbin being one of them, on Wednesday August 5th. A highly insightful show, the discussion included the focus of Tina’s “Danny the Dragon” book series: mainly to inspire simple values of kindness, friendliness as well as healthy eating and dietary awareness in children; and many other important topics were explored, such as the ways in which authors, parents and teachers can use literature to spark positive change in our children, despite a media-saturated society.
