Young adults and children with ADD/ADHD and those on the Autistic spectrum really benefit from improved nutrition.
Simple steps can make huge improvements.
These include eating a nutritious breakfast which includes protein and fruits; eating 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day; eating foods high in natural fats such as organic butter, nuts, seeds and fish; and drinking pure water.
Reduce and eliminate foods high in sugar such as cookies, cakes, soda and candy; fast and processed foods and avoid food coloring, corn syrup and preservatives.
Be certain that your child is getting all of the important vitamins and minerals by eating all of the fruits and vegetables mentioned above. If not, Catalyn is a wonderful whole food multiple vitamin for children and young adults. It is available as a chewable as well.
And if your child has been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD or is on the autism spectrum, there are many different alternatives to medications.
