"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

make a dish, take a dish
yeah you are
Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.
I think you mean "greatest movie of all time".greatest comedy movie ever!
OP, I wouldn't say anything. I agree with others that it would only come off as snippy and obnoxious. An optional, free event for your kid is not really the time to get on your soapbox. I'd just bring a separate dish for your kid to eat and share with others.
Nope nope nope. Keep your mouth shut. This is your child's swim coach, and you do not want to appear like a hovering ballistic soccer mom. Feed your child what you want but don't enforce it upon others. Besides, you do not want to antagonize sone one involved in your child's life.

"I'm not a psychopath, I'm a high-functioning sociopath; do your research."
Load up your kid with meat early, then send him to the pasta dinner for only the salad.
If they have problems with him skipping the pasta, he can just say he's gluten sensitive.
Is this a fundraising dinner? Pasta is notoriously cheap and makes good profit.
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained to 110 on sugar cheat. Reset with 85P / 90C / 90F. Currently weaning off fat to 85P / 90C / 60F.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
Definitely bring up your concerns with the coach if you want to alienate and embarrass your kid in front of a coach he respects and his teammates. This type of approach ought to work well until your kid hits his teen years and starts to rebel because he/she feels like a freak show.
Do what you believe is 'right' in your own home, and try not to let that spill over into the other areas of your life. It's kind of similar to the born agains knocking on your door on Sunday with their briefcase and kids in tow. I mean, food is kind of like religion -- practice what you want at home, but pushing your beliefs/wants on others is only going to backfire. If you make your paleo lifestyle a 'big deal' your kids are going to think they are 'different'.
