Post Effectively Managing Children With ADHD
by: Peter Koyle

As a parent, you will want the best for your child. You wan them to grow up and develop into a healthy, strong and independent individual; to estbalish themselves in a forward moving career and have a family. Also, you will find that many youngsters will play and become hyper and distracted on some occassions, which is considered part of growing up. However, you may be a parent who has a child who is overly hyper and becomes confused or distracted, thus you may find that they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD.

There are medicines and different therapies that can help with this, but many parents might wonder what else they can do to help their children. Some food may help ADHD and some other food may be good to limit or avoid for children with ADHD. Knowing the foods to eat and those to avoid can help in making children with this disorder, happier and healthier for a long time into the future.

If we look at recent studies about chilren with ADHD, we find that some research has shown the causes of ADHD in children could be as a result of an individual's diet and a deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals - these include a deficiency in omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin C, zinc, and possibly iron.

Not getting enough Omega 3 fatty acids has been linked to some symptoms of ADHD and some children with ADHD show other symptoms of an Omega 3 fatty acid deficiency such as dry skin and hair, thirst, and frequent urination. Some studies have shown that children with ADHD that were given fish oil supplements shown some improvements.

Also, some studies have found that children with ADHD may have more food allergies and they lose vitamins due to be allergic to foods such as: wheat, corn, soy, citrus, chocolate, eggs, artificial colors and preservatives. Some children with ADHD may also be allergic to food dye and in studies when these foods were taken away, some symptoms showed improvement. Giving children with ADHD zinc and iron supplements seemed to improve symptoms in some cases.

You will need to keep an eye on what your child eats and help them stay away from food additives and anything children with ADHD could be allergic to. Doing so will help improve their symptons and make them less hyperactive. You may also find that giving them Vitamin C supplements will help improve the symptoms too. And, consulting a doctor, about other concerns, medicines and for regular routine checkups, is also advisable.

There is strong importance for a child with ADHD to have enough vitamins and minerals to live a long and happy life, but there are certain vitamins and minerals that may cause the symptoms to get worse. This is the main reason for you to insist on your child eating a healthy and balanced diet, and for them to exercise regularly. This will mean that your child with ADHD will stay healthier and happier for longer.
