ROOKIES CONTINUE THEIR TRAINING. THAT IS A LOOK AT YOUR SPORTS. HAVE A GREAT START YOUR DAY. JENNIFER: WHEN YOU’RE AN ADULT AND HAVE TO LIMIT YOUR DIET, THAT’S BAD ENOUGH. BUT WHEN YOU’RE KID, IT’S EVEN HARDER. 14-YEAR-OLD CALEB HAS CROHNS DISEASE, AND HE AND HIS MOM HAVE FOUND A WAY TO COPE WHILE ALSO HELPING OTHER KIDS IN THE PROCESS. GOOD MORNING.>>GOOD MORNING. JENNIFER: YOU HAVE ALREADY STARTED TO CHANGE THE THINGS THAT YOU EAT, BUT IT IS ONLY RECENTLY THAT YOU HAVE REALLY CHANGED YOUR DIET.>>YES, IT IS ONLY BEEN ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF THAT I CHANGED TO A SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET. MY BLOOD LEVELS HAVE BEEN SO MUCH BETTER. JENNIFER MOM, YOU HAVE TRIED TO FIND A WAY THAT HE COULD EAT AND BE LIKE NORMAL KIDS. TO EAT THE THINGS THAT NORMAL KIDS MIGHT EAT. AND YOU CAME UP WITH A GOOD IDEA.>>YES, THE DIET THAT HE STARTED CUTS OUT A LOT OF THE NORMAL THINGS THAT A KID MIGHT EAT. HE DID WELL PHYSICALLY, BUT SOCIALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY HE WAS STRUGGLING. SO, I REALIZED HE NEEDED TO HAVE FOOD THAT KIDS LIKE TO EAT LIKE PIZZA, ARENAS, AND CHICKEN NUGGETS. ANGST LIKE — PIZZA, DORITOS, CHICKEN NUGGETS, THINGS LIKE THAT. AND SO, I CAME UP WITH A COOKING COMPANY THAT WOULD CREATE PRODUCTS THAT WOULD DO THAT. JENNIFER: SO YOU ARE GOING TO PACKAGE FOOD THAT YOU CAN SELL AT LOCAL STORES?>>YES, WE ARE GOING TO SELL THEM AT STORES LIKE TRADER JOE’S WHICH ARE GRATEFUL TO HAVE THE FOOD. JENNIFER: AND NOW YOU ARE GOING TO PAY — MAKE SOME FOOD YOU LIKE TO EAT?>>YES, THIS IS A CHOCOLATE CAKE. IT IS NOT ONE OF THE FOODS WE ARE SELLING ON OUR WEBSITE, BUT IT IS ONE OF THE FOODS I LIKE TO EAT.>>IT IS A CHOCOLATE CAKE, BUT IT HAS NO CHOCOLATE, NO SUGAR, NO GRACE. IT USES PECAN FLOUR SO IT LOOKS LIKE CHOCOLATE, AND THE DATES MAKE IT SWEET. IT USES COCOA BUTTER TO GET THAT CHOCOLATEY FLAVOR. JENNIFER: AND THIS IS ALSO GOOD FOR PARENTS WHO WANT TO GET WELL — GET AWAY FROM ALL THOSE PRESERVATIVES?>>YES, SO IT IS NOT JUST FOR KIDS WITH CROHN’S DISEASE. OBESITY IS ONE OF THE TOP 10 KILLERS IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW. JENNIFER: WE WANTED TO SHOWCASE WHAT IT IS THAT YOU HAVE COME UP WITH.
