We need to Avoid food that contain artificial sweeteners, foods that contain high amounts of sugar, saturated fat or caffeine.

Processed foods like deli meat have been linked to triggering ADHD symptoms in children. Instead choose foods that contain antioxidants, choline, omega-3 fatty acids, and complex carbohydrates that boost brain health.

Fruits & nuts for snacks

Apples

Pears

Oranges

Kiwi

To add Protein to a healthy diet :

beans, almonds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, multi grain cereal. Eggs, milk, goat cheese, and Greek yogurt.

Fish for omega 3 & fatty acid

Salmon, mackerel, fresh tuna, trout, sardines, herring.

Making tuna wraps, sandwiches and pasta salads for kids lunches is a great way to add good fat to their diet.

For salads, sandwiches, and wraps use Green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale. These greens are full of folate and vitamins .

Tarragon, Basil, and Parsley.

Tarragon is used in many classic French sauces including: bearnaise, hollandaise, tartar and bechamel. It is a wonderful fish herb for sole, shrimp and also for chicken, veal, and tuna salad.

Parsley is used In Middle Eastern salads; with basil, to make pesto; add to soups, stews, sauces, meatballs, fishcakes, burgers, salsas and marinades.
Basil can add a kick of flavor to many dishes. Of course in pasta sauce, and on pizza. Pairs great with tomatoes, onions and garlic. Add to vegetable soups. Infuse your favorite olive oil with basil. It only takes a few minutes!
