It may be difficult to get your young children to eat their mushrooms, but if they are suffering from Leigh’s disease, a neurometabolic disorder, then you should be adding these to their diet. Mushrooms are rich in essential minerals and vitamins, and have notably high levels of vitamin B1, a vitamin that is specifically linked to a reduction if severity of Leigh’s disease. You can mix mushrooms up in many soups, pasta and meat dishes to mask the taste in case your children aren’t fond of fungi.
