Vitamin E and Folic : Food high in vitamin e and Folic Acid help decrease red blood cell breakdown in g6pd. Definitely avoid fava beans since they are a known cause of red blood cell breakdown in the blood. Mom could be careful to chose for herself milk formulas which have no traces of soy or soya beans since soy and red wine, and blueberries could trigger g6pd.

This is VERY good advice.
