What foods should kids with ADHD avoid?

What foods should kids with ADHD avoid?

Being a parent of a child with ADHD can come with its own unique set of challenges. Pediatrician and author Dr. Jennifer Shu knows parents want their kids to have fun without bouncing of the walls too much. And that has some moms and dads taking a closer look at their child’s diet. 

Shu tells HLN’s Robin Meade that, unfortunately, it’s not as simple as kids eating or avoiding certain foods. But there are some things parents can do. For example, they can watch out for foods that make their kid fidgety. She says some children might react more to things like sugar, preservatives, food additives and colorings. So, if parents suspect that’s the case for their child, they can try cutting down on how much he or she eats.
