What Are The Best Groceries for Children With Behavioral Problems?

List: Posted: 12/10/10

You might be surprised at the many foods at the grocery store which can trigger behavioral problems in your children.  The many artificial flavorings, colors, additives, and preservatives that large food distribution companies are putting in their products have been proven to cause behavioral problems in children or to exacerbate an already existing condition.

Children that have ADHD and other behavioral problems related to hyperactivity or lack of concentration can react badly to artificial colors.  Though any artificial colors can provoke behavioral problems, the red dye in several beverages and candies is believed to be the worst for children.  Popular fruit punches, Popsicles, and hard candies can all trigger hyperactivity in children.

Many of the artificial preservatives in pre-prepared meats or canned soups can also have an effect on behavioral problems in children.  These preservatives can lead to a general feeling of lethargy, which can result in surly behavior or general disobedience.  Many parents fret over laziness in their children without realizing that behavioral problems can stem directly from the foods that their children eat.

You can combat behavioral problems by ensuring that you buy natural foods from the grocery story.  When shopping, check ingredients labels and rule out foods that include any artificial ingredients.  This may cost more money in the beginning, and you may find that you are preparing more foods from scratch.  You could also find that you are spending a little longer in the grocery store on each visit, but when your children cease to exhibit behavioral problems, the money and time will be worth it.
