Information is good and some of the recipes are delicious.

I am afraid to order these books and find they require us to find and buy foods that may not be found in our area.

I would not buy this book and have already returned the copy I purchased.

In the late '70s, an earlier version of this book changed my two-year old daughters life forever. I believe that then the title phrase was "hypoactive" instead of "hyperactive". I had an adorable, sweet, little girl that would suddenly go into uncontrollable rages. A neighbor happened to be watching the Phil Donahue show and told me about the cookbook that was discussed on the show that day. I bought it on Tuesday and by Saturday I had a new child. I explained to her that certain things were poison to her and that sugar would make her have what we called a "sugar fit". She, at age 2 1/2, became a helper in the process and would refuse any candy, etc. that was offered to her. She's now age 30, and still is careful about intake, staying aware of how foods affect her. She has never, ever had another "sugar fit". I'm looking for the book again for my son's little boy - age 2 1/2 - who has the same symptoms.

My son was diagnosed last year through his elementary school with ADHD and they pushed medication however I was not about to go that route until I had dissolved every other possible alternative. I purchased the Feingold Diet cookbook and surprisingly the recipies are delicious! I was skeptical at first because my son is 6 years old and I was afraid he would put up an argument to eat these foods but to my surprise we all have liked the recipes we have tried. We have only been on the diet for about 4 weeks in which we have seen some changes in behavior (I think the first couple weeks he was rebelling about having to be on a "special diet" plus when he visits his dad everyother weekend, he has gotten food not approved on the diet which sets us back a couple days). Also to our surprise, my husband has experienced positive changes in his energy level and overall general health. You are what you eat!

If you are going to go on the Feingold diet, I would absolutely recommend this book. There are so many foods you avoid to make this diet work - this book has recipes that will help you get started. After you have gotten comfortable with what's okay and what's not, then you can branch out and use other recipe books or find recipes in other places that will work, but this book helps in those first difficult weeks on Feingold. And ultimately, if salicylates is a problem for you or your child, then having a resource full of things that you CAN eat is invaluable.

The Feingold Cookbook is a good one but the information about the Feingold Program is out of date. For more up to date info about the diet one should read Why Won't My Child Behave? by Jane Hersey, National Director of the Feingold Association, support group.

About 30 years ago I put my son on this diet. Within a week I had people asking what I had done because he was like a different child. I had given my book away many many years ago. I ordered this copy for a friend.

The recipes were very old and so many items have been changed. I would recommend a newer version if you are serious about this way of eating.

I purchased this book back in the mid 1980's for my then young son to help with his ADD. My book has been used so much that I had to buy a replacement book for use with my young granddaughter who has ADD. Information is good and some of the recipes are delicious. This book and the book "Driven to Distraction" are a must for any person who has a young or any age individual with ADD or ADHD.
