Bella’s version of the Ketogenic Diet

Updated: Oct 30, 2018

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT version). Bella has been on this diet for nearly 5 years, we have had many trials and tribulations and i am by no means an expert. Her ‘magic oil’ as we call it is made from coconut and when you are trying to make her 4 meals a day containing a substantial amount, you pick up some tricks along the way, some days she loves her food and others i find myself bribing her to eat, but one way or another, a lot of patience and time we get it in! (ps most of the time i have no patience and time is never on my side 🙂) My mum has taught me to take a deep breath and count backwards from ten, always helps to be calm when trying to feed a keto kid food, easier said than done ! But the positives in Bellas case far outway the negatives, her brain absorbs ketones really well and in turn she is growing and developing to the best of her ability. She is on a 4:1 ratio of fat to everything else, so remember any meals i share are made to this ratio and amounts of carb and fat and protein she is allowed has been calculated by a dietitian...........
