ok so I am asking again today since I got only 2 responses :)
Ok so my son is only 3-1/2 but with Myself and DH being ADHD he has a 90% chance of having it and.. well... He sure shows some very clear signs already..
I want to take all the "Crap" out of his diet, although we have always fed him at least 70% organic at home, he is in daycare and financially, we can't afford it all the time. What does it mean when people say they take out all the processed foods out of their diets? Does that mean just meat or like anything canned or boxed? What type of foods do you feed your child/children. I would like to start this early to help school years as already preschool age, he can't focus, sit, pay attention etc. beyond even for a 3 year old..
If you can't detail it in this, can you please email me? I am and have been googling the best I can but I would like help from Mothers who had to do this. Also, He's lactose intolerant so it makes it hard for casseroles or homemade things without cheese..

Processed foods are foods which are changed from their natural state. BLEACHED flour, HYROGINATED oils, ARTIFICIAL flavor/color, grains that are no longer whole. Even cooking can be considered a process as fruits and veggies are different after cooking. All 3-year-olds have a short attention span, so it's hard to diagnose at that age. DD has ADHD and is lactose intolerant. She takes lactase pills (they also come as a liquid) and eats dairy. Some say the Feingold Diet is what helps. (Google Feingold) Other say to go gluten and casein free. (GFCF diet) We haven't noticed much change with trying to change DD's diet. She is very picky and has issues with textures and smells so it's hard to change things with her.
