The GAPS Milkshake should be avoided if the patient suffers from digestive distress associated with diarrhoea.
This milkshake will provide valuable raw nutrients and beneficial fats. Some parents find it easier to add Cod Liver Oil to the milkshake, rather than on its own and children don’t know it has been added. Dr Natasha suggests starting with 1/3 of a glass per day first thing in the morning. For optimal benefits, Dr Natasha encourages 4-5 glasses of the GAPS Milkshake per day, in-between meals and to chew every mouthful slowly.
*Remember if you are adding yoghurt or kefir to start with yoghurt first because kefir can produce a strong reaction. Always pay attention on how to introduce a new food on the GAPS Program: gradually and slowly with small amounts to begin with.
*Caution: The GAPS Milkshake should be avoided if the patient suffers from digestive distress associated with diarrhoea.
