Choosing Foods For Children With ADHD

List: Posted: 12/10/10

ADHD in children is a growing problem, as physicians everywhere are diagnosing more and more ADHD cases.  If your children have been diagnosed with ADHD, then you are probably aware of the medications that can help and the medications that can harm.  Did you know, though, that there are certain foods that you purchase every day at the grocery store that can trigger hyperactivity in ADHD children?

For years, food companies have been including more and more artificial ingredients in cereals, beverages, sandwich meats, and canned soups.  Even children with ADHD that take their medicine on a regular basis can experience bouts of behavioral problems after eating these foods.  You can cut down on hyperactivity in ADHD children by selecting natural foods from the grocery store.

There are several tips for shopping for ADHD children.  For instance, avoid sandwich meats that are prepackaged, because the preservatives can have an adverse effect on children with ADHD.  Artificial coloring in beverages like popular fruit punches can also trigger hyperactivity in ADHD children.  Even canned soups from popular companies can make ADHD children behave poorly.  You can prevent these episodes by preparing homemade soups with natural ingredients, choosing sandwich meats from the deli in your supermarket, or serving fruit juice that does not contain artificial colors or sweeteners.  Try making soup yourself one day - there are tons recipes out there, and soup is one of the quickest, easiest and cheapest meals you can make your family.
You will be pleasantly surprised with the changes in your child's behavior after just a short time of shopping for natural foods and products.   There is no way to eliminate ADHD in children, but with a little care and attention, you might just be able to reduce some of the symptoms.
