Is your son taking stimulant medications?  Loss of appetite and weight loss is a common side effect of stimulants, and one of the reasons why medications alone cannot treat ADHD.  ADHD is sometimes caused by a deficiency in certain nutrients and can only get worse if the child is not eating.  Talk to your son’s doctor and see if the dosage of the medication can be reduced.    

Your son can start replenishing the lost nutrients with the right ADHD diet.  Not only do ADHD diets contain foods that can correct some nutritional deficiencies; they also eliminate harmful food substances like artificial additives, gluten and wheat, which are known to trigger ADHD symptoms.  Going on an ADHD diet will mean having to give up a lot of favorite foods, like pasta and ice cream, but it doesn’t necessarily have to mean eating bland, boring food forever.  I just recently wrote a blog post on ten cookbooks for ADHD diets **************** that can show you how to make nutritious but delicious ADHD-friendly dishes, as well as tips on how to do an ADHD diet.
