Our 6yr old has just gone through tests at school for ADHD as he was very hyper, no consentration, distuptive in class, unable to consentrate to read (1 book every 3 weeks).
The assessor's results at the end were "he's a very bright and intelegent boy who knows exactly what to so to manipulate everyone into getting exactly what he wants, the issue may have something to do with what he's eating and drinking!"
so we looked into everything as my husband is very particular on cooking fresh food, no ready meals or tinned food and no fizzy pop.
We found the flavoured water, yogurts and some sweets contained Aspartame and Aceflume K.
we stopped giving him all foods and drinks with these additives in and Hey Presto, a new boy has emerged, he sits down at the table to eat, doesnt hit out or chat back to us, his teacher is really impressed with the difference in class and he read 30+ books last month alone........
the only thing i can say is parents need to be more aware of just what is contained in foods and its not just junk food either.
