We've been GFCFSF (soy) for a year and a half, saw great results with my son, minimal results with my daughter.  My best tip is TRY IT.  It's just food.  Repeat that every day for 2 months, if you have NO cheats and see NO results then you can stop and know that you've given it a full trial and it's not for your family. 

Suggestions:  Whole Foods.  Expensive - yes.  But worth it.  Ian's brand EVERYTHING is good and easy and I swear your kid will eat it.  And "Enjoy Life" brand chocolate chips make everything ok in the end:)

Are chocolate chips casein free?

Even if the diet does work is it worth. Do the improvements really outweigh not being ever able to eat favorite foods again?

I got my daughter tested for celiac disease and other food allergies that all came back negative. Since there was no health reason to make any major changes in her diet and the fact that she's already a picky eater, I decided not to try it at this point.

I see you've asked about certain foods being GFCF- here's a link that should help and you can PM me with any questions.

ABSOLUTELY worth a shot
