20 Gut Health Tips for Kids with ADHD

7. Remove or reduce exposure to possible triggers, such as added stressors and video games. These flood the brain with the important neurotransmitter called dopamine, leaving very little dopamine leftover for motivation, focus, and attention.

8. Consume an abundance of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and phospholipids.

Foods such as chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, avocados, whole grains, olive oil, and almonds are all fairly easy foods to sneak into your child’s lunchbox or mix in with their meals. Try my Chocolate Chia Pudding, Dairy-free Ranch Dressing, AIP Guacamole, Moroccan Vinaigrette, and Almond Joy Bars to see how easily and deliciously you can add these to your child’s diet.

9. Watch the carbs.  Excess carbs and refined sugars can lead to gut dysbiosis which can cause all kinds of health and behavioral issues.

10. Consider Liver Support – The liver filters out all kinds of toxins so give it some support.  Supplements are one way to do that, and these castor oil packs have been a huge help in our family.
