could try gluten free. Some seem to react from that.
I've been reading about Omega 3 and how a deficiency in the essential fatty acids(like omega 3) can contribute to ADD and attention issues. I'm going to see if a drop in processed foods and switch to those higher in these will help with my daughter. She is not ADD but she does seem to have concentration issues, more than a 6 almost 7 year old should have. Plus she used to have more attention in the past. Most packaged and processed foods are stripped of the omega 3s or do not have them.
I've been doing tons of research on macrobiotics though as I want to not just lose weight because I have reduced calories but I want to change the foods and teach my daughter good nutrition.
I've heard red coloring is one big one for it too. A friend of mine uses enzymes she gets a Trader Joe's her son is autistic and this is the only "med" he takes. If she had not told me and I didn't know certain parts of it I would have never guessed. He is so calm and collected. He was also on a gluten free diet at one point.
