ADHD Diet

We decided as a family to help our son manage ADHD and being on the spectrum with diet choices. I have put together a list of what has helped him and has helped other physical problems we discovered on path to healing and feeling better.

  • Eliminate Gluten and Dairy
  • Eliminate Artificial Colors and Flavors
  • Preservatives
  • Artificial Sweetners
  • Artificial Fragances
  • Salicylates
  • Excitotoxins

Instead of looking at all the things that aren’t recommended to eat, I just remember NO processed food, if we can’t pronounce it – don’t eat it, and if great great grandma wouldn’t know what it is don’t eat it.

A few other tips that help us

  • high protein breakfast
  • Limit sugar intake
  • Just because you give up gluten doesn’t mean buy a gluten free processed food

 

Another great resource in helping with diet change is the Feingold Association, I highly recommend buying a membership and trying out their services (diet help), they also have great facebook pages that members can join. 21 day detox
