Parents of ADHD Children
I have a question for those who have found diet changes to be helpful. Anytime I start researching diet I get overwhelmed and doctors tend to tell us there is really no evidence that it helps. However, as parents, I think we need to follow our instincts as well. I am going to ask specifically about a meal and would like to know if this meal would effect your child. We just had a very pleasant dinner with our two ADHD kiddos. However within 10 minutes our 8 year old was manic and then raging. We are grasping at straws to understand what happens with her. We had refrigerated cheese ravioli with organic tomato sauce and Brussels sprouts. She had water to drink. Would this have affected your child?
We have really never made a connection with food but the change was so sudden we thought it was worth asking the question.
Thanks so much for your help.
