Free Guide to Delicious (and ADHD-Friendly!) Eating
The right nutrition can help manage ADHD symptoms. Here’s how to beef up protein levels and omega-3 fatty acids while trimming sugar and chemicals from your family’s meals.
Medication and behavior therapy are the most effective treatments for managing ADHD symptoms, but evidence shows that the right nutrition may help as well. Common nutrients like iron, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids can help you (or your child) manage symptoms like hyperactivity, distractibility, and impulsive behavior.
Knowing what nutrients you need is only half the battle, however. You also need to know what foods allow you to incorporate these nutrients into breakfast, lunch, and dinner — and how you can prepare healthy, delicious meals without breaking the bank. This guide will put you on the path to good nutrition, explaining how to cook up meals that:
1. Incorporate foods high in protein like fish, eggs, and nuts
2. Contain unprocessed, organic materials
3. Include omega-3 fatty acids
4. Contain less sugar, which may have a negative effect on behavior
Understanding the connection between ADHD symptoms and the food you eat is a lifelong process. With this eight-page guide, you can start cooking up an ADHD-friendly eating plan today!
