Many parents are surprised at how much their child’s palate and selection of food has changed after just a few days or weeks of eating at The NOAH Project®. Faye is very creative with her recipes and the food presentation that comes from our kitchen. All of the children have tried a variety of food that they may not have been offered otherwise. Some new GECF favorites are carrots, popsicles, rice cookies, rice cakes, vegetarian burgers, fried sweet potatoes, salmon nuggets, and yeast-free pepperoni/vegetable pizza. Every day at least one child indicates their love for the taste of the food by wiping their trays clean and at asking for more! It is evident that once the cravings and addiction to gluten and casein are reduced that the child will choose alternative foods that are healthy. As their bodies become more balanced their overall health improves and they seem to be much happier and interactive. Faye says “Our kitchen’s recipe for success is a pound of care mixed with a ton of fresh organic nutrients to win the respect and affection of our most special children.”
