What Are You Eating?

Posted on February 6, 2012


There isn’t very much that does not qualify as food these days. Stadium nacho cheese sauce, cotton candy, Chicken McNuggets; Sure these might provide a very small measure of nutritional value but it is always vital to explore healthier options. The extra boost of nutrition from a healthier diet is significantly more important today because of the current ADHD medication shortage.  

From webmd.com:

Eat a high-protein diet, including beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts. Add protein foods in the morning and for after-school snacks, to improve concentration and possibly increase the time ADHD medications work.

Eat fewer simple carbohydrates, such as candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins.

Eat more complex carbohydrates, such as vegetables and some fruits (including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi). Eating complex carbs at night may aid sleep.

Eat more Omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in tuna, salmon, other cold-water white fish, walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil. Omega-3 fatty acids are also available in supplement form.
