ADHD Nutrition and Weight Loss/Gain
SLOW eater challenges....need advice please!
My son (8yrs old) with ADHD has always been a very slow eater and it drives us bonkers as its just not appropriate to sit at the table for up to an hour per meal. Breakfast is the worst as we have time constraints. Prior to camp each morning, I give him 30 minutes to eat (generous in my opinion) and he rarely finishes even with constant prodding/reminding. Breakfast is not a huge portion either (today was thin eggo waffle, 2 sausages, couple bites of canelope and cup of milk).
Nothing I have tried has worked (incentive, clock watching, race, tv or no tv, reading/no reading, ultimatums to lose electronice, etc).
Does anyone else have this issue? What works for you/what tips can you offer!
Regards, Going bonkers in NJ
