As many of you know, my amazing (and very outspoken and wilful) son Jack, has Down Syndrome (DS) so I’ve been puzzling all morning about how I cleverly connect nutrition and DS. Do I go into lots of detail about Omega-3 fatty acids and cognitive function? Digestive issues in DS and diet? Or do I keep it simple? I went for simple…a healthy, balanced diet is vital for everyone to lead a life of optimum health! Never mind whether you’ve got DS or not, good, basic, nutrition is key.
I therefore wanted to share one of Jack’s favourite, lunch-time recipes, although when he’s made it he will then usually eat if for breakfast, lunch and dinner until it’s all gone!
