A great diet guideline for the ADHD child includes cold water fish. Tuna, salmon and herring are a few examples. These are good sources of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an essential fatty acid that is thought to be vital for brain development and is often deficient in those with ADD ADHD. If your child will not eat fish like mine. I suggest getting a fish oil supplement. Nordic Naturals has some great child friendly supplements that you can find at your local health food store.
