  • Dr Sears recommends adding more fruits and vegetables into their diet

  • If you don't mind me asking why would you think your 18 mo old is showing ADHD? That is way to young to make that kind of diagnosis. If you have a doctor telling you this then you need a second opinion ASAP. I am Mom to a child with an autism spectrum disorder an we have seen specialists from one end of the country to another and have been told many times that you can't begin to diagnosis this until the child is past the toddler years.

    I'm not trying to butt in..I just think you are looking at a diagnosis you don't want in your childs records until it absolutely has to be.

    This being said..with our own child, who takes no meds btw...we serve very limited amounts of processed food. If you cook from will do great. Avoid the processed stuff and stuff that contains a lot of sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup/sweeteners. Serve complex carbs and plenty of fresh fruits/veggies.

    Good luck.

  • I agree with the previous post, 18 months old is WAY too young to even consider diagnosing ADHD.

  • 18 mos.... there is no way of saying if they have this age should be active and full of energy and move from one thing to the next. my oldest has Aspergers and the Dr's have said that a proper diagnosis cannot be done before age 4, and that was 20 yrs ago.
