i had the exact same reaction. it gets easier once you start going to clinic and each time they tell you more and more. and they give you so much information and tools to work with. as they will tell you, as your child grows, he learns and knows about his condition, he will never know the difference and it will be so natural to him as what we eat is natural to us. my son is 17 months and ive actually tried giving him a tiny bite of a french fry, and he doesnt like it. i assume cause its not his kind of food.
