FODMAPs stands for fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols – which are short chain carbohydrates and alcohol sugars that the body finds hard to digest. Instead, when you consume FODMAPs, they travel to the gut and are a food source for your gut microbiome. Unfortunately, when gut bacteria eat FODMAPs they can produce hydrogen or methane gas – causing gastrointestinal discomfort in sensitive people. FODMAPs can also trigger diarrhea by bringing water into the gut. FODMAPs have been linked with IBS, and a Low FODMAPs diet has shown to reduce IBS.

Low FODMAPs Diet restricts: fructose, cow and soy milk, wheat, legumes, certain fruits (including, apples, pears, watermelon, and cherries), certain vegetables (including brussels sprouts and the onion family).

Many children and adults with neurological conditions and problems with focus, attention, mood, anxiety, etc. have digestive conditions and bacterial imbalances. When this is the case, a Low FODMAPs diet may be helpful.

Your child is unique and so are their diet and nutritional needs. Learn more about the low FODMAPS diet and how personalized nutrition can help your child today. Download our guide “12 Nutrition Steps to Better Health, Learning, and Behavior.”
