One of the biggest daily challenges for parents of children with ADHD or other neurodiverse conditions is planning healthy meals and snacks. Often the focus is on dietary restrictions, and the list of foods to avoid feels overwhelming.
Instead, Tricia Griffin, RDN, LD recommends shifting the focus. “As a nutritionist working with kids with ADHD and neurodiverse conditions, I found it helped to offer parents meal ideas rather than a long list of foods to avoid,” she explains.
“Parents and caregivers were always more interested in what their children could eat, not what they should not eat.”
This MindFULL Menu provides eight days of food options to help you add more health-promoting, “green light” protein sources, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats to meals and snacks. Parents and caregivers can easily customize these menu items to fit their child’s personal preferences and dietary restrictions.
