ADHD Diets: Eating Tips for ADHD Teens
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) symptoms and medications means those with the condition need to pay particular attention to diet, appetite, and nutrition. Here's how to make sure teens are making healthy food habits!
The Perfect Timing for Meals
Pay attention to your teen’s medication schedule, particularly because ADD/ADHD medication can suppress appetite. Make sure snacks and meals are available during those hunger dips. You might consider changing the timing of meals to coincide with appetite spurts. Load up on calories at breakfast, before the medication kicks in.
