You may find that an evaluation with a chinese medicine practitioner will offer insights into how some food groups may affect a person with epilepsy.
Diet clearly is important in all facets of outs health. This is a good question and more research for your child will help.

In brief: Ones allergic to

Some people with epilepsy do very well on a ketogenic diet and that decision needs to be are with someone who knows your child well and can determine that such a diet would be helpful.
Obviously every one should avoid foods they are allergic to or foods that they know are irritating in one way or another...Tis is not necessarily an allergy but is an intolerance.
