My daughter was diagnosed in October 2007. We have recently changed gastroenterologist for we had no guidance from the previous one.
I have been reading a lot on the forum about diet for remission, (Makers' diet, SCD, etc.) but I am at a loss in regards to diet during a flare up for a child. She does not have her period yet, and I was told it is important that she grows as much as possible before she does. So I am very concerned about what I feed her. She has been flaring since June.
Any help will be so appreciated. I am very very worried.
Thanks.

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. It's so tough to be so young and deal with so much. Poor thing! Has your new GI given any dietary recommendations? I know that most of them will say to eat whatever she can tolerate. I was dx'd at 16 and just ate whatever I could stomach. It was a lot of spaghetti and ramen. I know that sounds really gross, but for some reason I wanted pasta. I would encourage her to eat whatever will go down easy. And you can always supplement with a good vitamin.

As an adult I had quite a bit of success in inducing a remission of sorts with SCD. I highly recommend it to anyone. Some people claim that it doesn't work for them, but I think it's worth a try. My GI didn't even know about it and when I told her about it and she saw the success that I had she made me bring in the book and told me she was going to start telling her other patients about it.

Anyway, while I am ALL for trying SCD, I truly believe you have to go with what works in the moment. If you want an easily digestible vitamin with no fillers and junk, try looking at Freeda Vitamins online. They have a wide assortment and have really helped me a lot.

Hang in there Mom.

I'm so sorry that your daughter is going through this. I'm actually eating the Ramen now. I'm not feeling so hot either. I think it has something to do with the bland noodles and salty sauce mix. Also, things like rice, crackers, scrambled eggs and cream of wheat help me. Maybe they might be something that your daughter can eat....Also, popsicles and pediasure are very helpful...one from a flavor stand point...the other on a health stand point.

When I am flaring I find I do better on soft and easy to chew type things. I also eat alot of white things. White bread, white rice etc. I stick with soups, noodles, scrambled eggs. Very soft things. Hope your little one gets feeling better soon.

Gentle hugs to you both,

Thank you Stef17 and Solanges,

I am so grateful for having found a place where I can look for information from real human beings. The new GI said to feed her a low fiber diet, so I am mainly giving her rice, pasta, potatoes, chicken and fish, hard boild eggs and some cooked fruit and freez dried fruit (crispy green), white bread with honey. She drinks lactaid milk, about 2 cups a day, prepared with chai tea. She also has Pediasure sometimes, she does not like the flavors at all. What do you think?

Solanges: is the ramen the canned type? the dried one? Where/how do you get/eat it?

Stef 17: In regards to SCD, should I try it once she is over the flare up, or can we start during the flare up? Today is the first day I ever heard about this diet.

I will be seeing the GI on the 29th. I'll mention the SCD too, along with the dozens of other questions I have.

Thanks again...

Thank you Gail Nanners,
I guess I am on the right path, then. Is there anything in the list I wrote above that you think might be unwise to feed her?
It is so hard to pin point what might make things worse, even with a food journal.
Thank you for your support!

I try to stick to a loose version of the SCD, but when I am flaring really badly it's simply not possible. In that case I consume a lot of ensure and boost (neither the best, but it's better than nothing) and try to get water down. I would have literally wasted away without ensure.

As for food to avoid...
I know white bread and ramen are easy to get down, but they are REALLY bad for you. Ramen has MSG and other additives that you shouldn't be consuming...it's safer just to make homemade chicken soup. It's actually really easy, and I say that as someone who did during a bad flare.

I've started staying away from food whose ingredient labels are so long I can't even read them. Otherwise that is putting a lot of stuff into your body without realizing what it is :( So many of us do, but it really is no good.

I hope your daughter gets better..it sounds like she has a great mom by her side.

Hi Catasmom
 
I have a daughter who is currently only 9 and her Crohn's is flaring too. I came to this board very recently for the same reason you did...to find help, friends, ideas, etc. and to vent.  Having a sick child is the worst...believe me, I have two children and both have issues that I stress over every minute of every day.  This is a good place to come. Lots of nice people here all going thru similar experiences.
 
As for food, I am in the same boat as you... Trying to figure out what is the best thing to feed my daughter and prevent flares.  We are still at a point of guessing which foods bother her.  So far we KNOW tomato sauce in any form is a no-no, as is soda, fried foods and possibly beef.  I, too, am seriously considering the SCD for my child, altho I can't begin to imagine how I'm gonna get her to eat enough on that diet since she is a child and is SO particular about what she will and won't eat.
 
I recently bought a Yogourmet yogurt maker to begin making my own homemade yogurt for her, which is loaded with healthy bacteria (called Probiotics...if you're not familiar) which will hopefully help to colonize her gut with good bacteria, which may in turn push out some of the bad.  This is recommended on the SCD...so it's my first step into this territory. One teeny tiny step in the right direction toward healing her insides.
 
Good luck, and if you ever want to contact me personally, please feel free to email me.

Wow!
I'm tearing up with emotion. This is a wonderful place to be.
Thank you for all your guidance.
LMills, thanks for the advice, I am cooking most things from scratch, but sometimes time is so short.

I started engaging my daughter in the cooking big time when she was on summer break, and she seems to eat what I offer more readily since then.

Moobydoo: your input is so good! I gave her probiotics in July, but they seem to make things worse.
Does your child take them DURING the flare up? I'll look into the home make yougurt. I use to make it in my own oven when I was single and childless! Thanks!

Take probiotics all the time!!! Those have helped me so much. I take Align which works great. You may need to experiment for a little while though.

I will agree with LMills, that homemade soup would be better than the ramen type noodles. Also the ensure and boost will help to get some nutrition into her. Also I use the Primadolphilus Reuteri by Nature's Way as my probiotic and it works wonders for me. LMills is correct sometimes you have to try a few probiotics to find the right one, but they are something that is VERY helpful with Crohns. I was having 4-6 bms a day before I started them and I am now done to 1-2 a day, so they are very helpful in my opinion. Hope that helps.

First, it depends which probiotics you use. Some are much better for CD than others. The ones that have a track record are Culturelle, Align, and VSL#3. There are a couple of others that are good for special purposes, but those are good to start with. I think that it would be a good idea to use probiotics during a flare - just make sure that the probiotic you choose does NOT have "prebiotics" which are bacteria food and includes things like FOS, inulin or anything that is identified as a prebiotic.

A lot of the problems that result in flares are due to bacterial growth in the gut, with some also caused by food intolerances. Actual food intolerances are usually only a problem for short periods if you can avoid them for a few weeks. However, many foods are poorly digested in a flare and end up feeding the bacteria and making the problem worse. The problem foods for feeding bacteria are usually starches or contain starches that are not very digestible. Then too, once a flare has begun, the added gut permeability can cause intolerances for common foods. Usually it is the foods that you eat all the time that can become an intolerance. This makes for real problems when trying to figure out a diet. One way around this is to eat predigested foods or foods that have their proteins broken down - like soup or similar very well cooked foods. You can also use a hydrolysed protein supplement.

Common problem foods are milk (usually due to lactose which supports bacterial growth, but also a common food allergen), wheat (often just avoiding gluten is helpful), corn, soy, and nightshades (potato, tomato, sweet peppers, egg plant). Others are commonly troublesome in Crohn's, but they can be very specific to the person.

Sugar and starches are good to avoid, but you can substitute honey and fruit (cooked to start with) for sweets. I know that will be a problem for a lot of kids - there are some substitutes on the SCD recipe sites, but I don't use them, so I am not a good source for that.

Often, you can control a lot of the symptoms by eating soup for a day or two and then adding in more easily tolerated foods over time.

Hi Catasmom! Welcome but sorry you have to be here!

We do the SCD, but prior to my son's remission he had two minor flares which he decided to treat with a semi-elemental diet (it's an all liquid diet) instead of prednisone. It's tough to do but considered AS effective if not more so than prednisone in eliciting remission! The longest he had to do this was 10 days, but it worked like a charm! (Our doctor told us it might take 4 to 6 weeks, so possibly we were lucky.)

One of our forum members who goes by "Writer" has written a book on this topic--also called enteral nutrition. If you have any further questions about it, just post them here and hopefully she'll see and give us her expert information/advice.

But you certainly CAN start the SCD diet during a flare! Just read over the intro diet carefully and follow closely! Home made chicken broth (any other meat, for that matter) has properties that are very healing to the intestines! I'll try to find the right link and post it.

Also feel free to email me with any SCD questions. It's been VERY beneficial for my son! The "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" book by Elaine Gottschall might be a good investment for you! There is also a yahoo group called BTVC-SCD where they are all experts on the diet. I learned lots by just lurking there!

Try not to worry too much about her growth at this time. My daughter grew *two more inches* after her period started (and she started before her 12th birthday!). I don't know why pediatricians continue to perpetuate that... I know a lot of moms who said their daughters experienced exactly the same thing mine did...

I hope your daughter feels much better very soon!!!

....oh, and sadly, our doctors did not tell us about the SCD either...

I'm coming late to this party, but I self diagnosed at 13 and had to avoid a lot of foods that most teen kids wanted to eat. It wasn't always easy, so I can understand that getting your daughter to keep to a strict diet would be really hard. The SCD is a diet you must be religious about. At her young age you might have better luck just making sure that she is getting really high quality food of whatever she can tolerate. If I am going to eat applesauce, I eat homemade. The same with the chicken soup. I try not to use packaged foods at all. It really was the way I was brought up, so I already was cooking that way.

When she is flaring, like everyone else said, you want to have her eat soft low fiber foods. If you think she needs some more nutrients you might add some Ensure, Boost, or even Carnation Instant Breakfast(made with Lactaid milk). When she is feeling better keep a food diary so you know what upsets her. Try the offending food again in a few months. If it still bothers her, its off the list.

I do recommend an excellent book "Cooking Well for the Unwell", by Eileen Behan. She is a dietitian. The book explains exactly why, as patients, we need different diets, in easy to understand terms. She has chapters on Low Fiber, Clear Liquid, Full Liquid, Extra Protein, .... Basically any diet restriction that a doctor may order. At the end of each chapter, she has easy recipes. The recipes help me get out of my ruts when I have been "eating" the same clear liquids day after day. I have 2 copies because I was always loaning it out and never had it when I needed it. I got them from Amazon as used books for about $4. Well worth the money. She has lots of tips in it about adding in extra calories, or extra protein. Just a really good resource for a Crohnie.

Here is a page from SCDiet.org explaining how to make chicken broth:

http://www.scdiet.org/4faq/starting.html

Other meat-based broths are also considered to be very healing.  It's just best to have the bones to get the full benefit of the gelatin that they contain.  I even have a chicken stock recipe from Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions that says to use chicken feet if you can find them because they are so very high in healing gelatin!!!

Catasmom - Yes, my child does take probiotics during a flare, and always.  I give one VSL#3, one Culturelle, and a probiotic from customprobiotics.com called a 6-Strain that many claim to have had good results with for IBD.  I try to give them about 30 mins. before a meal, or at bedtime.  (Also, remember if your child is ever taking ANTI biotics, do not give the probiotics at the same time or the "anti's" will kill them off immediately.)
 
All of this probiotic purchasing can get expensive to say the least, so I am excited to be pulling my very first batch of homemade yogurt out of the fridge for her tonight. I hope she eats it!  A homemade (not store bought) yogurt has trillions of beneficial probiotics compared to the amount (billions or millions) found in probiotic capsules.  So, the yogurt is SO much cheaper and better for her.  Wish me luck!  If you do decide to venture back into the yogurt making arena, you may want to reference the "correct" SCD way to make the yogurt for maximum beneficial bacteria by reading thru the website pecanbread.com. 
 
I also just purchased some Ensure for my daughter today. It's not bad if it's very very cold, says she.  I'm thinking that perhaps giving her gut a rest for a bit by giving more liquid and yogurt type nutrition rather than "food" may get her out of this flare... Gonna try it starting this weekend and see if she will comply.  I buy the Ensure Plus, which has added calories for adding or maintaining weight.
 
Here's hoping that both of our daughter's are in remission soon!  Please keep posting. I'm interested to hear what you decide to pursue and have success with. smilewinkgrin

Catasmom - I keep forgetting to mention, IF she doesn't seem to tolerate probiotics, start slower.  Some people experience some discomfort when beginning them i.e. bloating, gas, etc. Perhaps she needs a really tiny dose to start, like a 1/2 capsule.  Also note on the pecanbread.com website, they talk about starting very very slowly when eating the homemade yogurt for this very reason.  Instead of scarfing down a whole cup of it, I think they suggest starting with like a 1/2 tsp or something that seems miniscule... This is to watch for reactions, allow the body to adjust to the inflooding of good bacteria and the die off of the bad guys.  Good luck!
 
P.S. A very good friend of mine recently managed to get her months-long battle with Colitis into remission.  She credits it to taking LOTS of Culturelle.  Not saying this happens for everyone... Just a thought.

When I was your daughter's age and was flaring, I used to calm down a little when I ate a motherload of protein (probably because I was also anemic). My recommendation is to just keep it simple, no crazy spices or flavors, no catered food that's been sitting out for a while, etc.

If your daughter doesn't like the Pediasure, might she be willing to try one of the other liquid supplements (Ensure, Boost, or their various store-brand equivalents)? Every brand has its own flavor, so she might find a taste she likes if you experiment. Technically, these are known as enteral nutrition formulas, and they are a medically validated option for inducing remission and improving growth in kids with Crohn's. To induce remission, you generally have to stick to the formula only for several weeks, but they will often work to improve growth even if taken just as a supplement to a regular diet. You might try 750 calories per day, perhaps one can or bottle with each meal. She could well see some growth within 6 to 8 weeks.

EMom - Do you have any other recipes for "meat based" soups other than the traditional SCD chicken soup?  I'm curious. Can any of the others be used to begin SCD other than the chicken soup?

I didnt have time at the moment to see if someone else posted this but crohnsonline.com has a signup and you get a free crohns cookbook. This may not be than answer while in a flare (note sure what is published in there still waiting for mine to arrive) but the items in there may help plan meals to help prevent or lessen flares.

When you say NO MILK, does this include Lactaid milk, or is Lactaid OK?
