Impaired communication and interaction with others Interest or interest in something is limited and behavioral disorders such as doing something repeatedly violence like hitting. But this condition is not directly related to his diet.
In a few articles explaining what needs to be considered dietary patterns in children with ASD, namely:
Gluten free casein free diet (GFCF) This dietary diet is a diet pattern that is popular today for ASD. Where by eating gluten-free foods and casein can reduce the risk of children's behavior to be autistic. Even so this data is not enough to prove with this GFCF diet can be used as a therapy to treat ASD. Failsafe Diet which is one of the diets of children with autism.

But this dietary pattern is not necessarily suitable for all children. It is better to consult further with a nutritionist doctor to carry out certain dietary patterns for children.
