Parenting a Child with ADHD

If you’re a mom or dad looking to improve your child’s weight, growth, behavior and attention, then you probably already know you need to get your nutrition ducks in a row. 

After all, you probably know that kids who get proper nutrition — day in and day out– grow well, have the right amount of energy (not too little or too much), and can function in their daily tasks.

Jill Castle, MS, RDN, creator of The ADHD Diet for Kids Nutrition Class

I’ve been a pediatric nutritionist for over 28 years and a mom to four kids. I have a lot of insight, experience, and wisdom to share about nutrition and food for the ADHD child.  

The ADHD Diet for Kids program is a result of my extensive work with ADHD children, the nutrition science as we know it today, and my experience with real families who bravely navigate nutrition and ADHD every day.

Nutrition for the Child with ADHD

No matter what approach you’ve tried in the past, the real success comes from taking a refreshingly new approach to nourishing the child with ADHD.

The ADHD Diet for Kids nutrition class helps you balance food, eliminate food sensitivities, target inadequate nutrients, and feed with love and limits so your child improves in all areas, including attention, behavior, learning, growth and overall health.  

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from the research and working with families and children with ADHD and funneled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step program that not only teaches you WHAT to feed your child, but HOW to do it in the most effective and positive manner.

The ADHD Diet for Kids program is a whole-child, integrated approach using healthy food, positive feeding strategies and detective-like interventions to correct common nutrition challenges.

What You’ll Learn about ADHD & Nutrition

Module One: Eating with ADHD 

As the name suggests, in this module, you’ll give your complete focus to food and nutrients. Specifically, what your child is eating, what he should be eating, and how to strategize a path to better nutrition.  

  • You’ll review the common growth and nutrition challenges associated with ADHD and why they occur so you can anticipate trouble before it begins – or reverse it if you’re in the thick of it. You’ll learn more about why your child frequently makes poor food choices.
  • You’ll learn the latest science about the nutritional requirements for kids with ADHD and the specific nutrients and additives that may need to be addressed so you can nourish your child strategically for better attention, behavior, learning and growth.
  • You’ll be able to determine if your child has additional food sensitivities, and what you can do about them.
  • You’ll get specific ways to improve food selection, provide better diet balance, and understand when and why to use nutrient supplementation. 

The module breaks down into the following lessons:  

Lesson 1: Growth & Nutrition Challenges with ADHD
Lesson 2: Nutrition for ADHD
Lesson 3: Sugar & Additives and ADHD
Lesson 4: Improving Nutrition with a Healthy ADHD Diet 

Module Two: Feeding Kids with ADHD 

Here, the focus is on the day-to-day grind of feeding your child. From setting limits and positive feeding strategies to navigating special diets and tailoring your feeding approach, by the end of this module you’ll have:

  • An understanding of why your child’s appetite is erratic and how you can manage it so that your child eats enough and with regularity. 
  • Learn about negative feeding practices so you can avoid them (because they often make things worse). You’ll also understand how to feed with love and limits so you can train your child to regulate his appetite and eating.
  • My strategy for feeding kids and how to implement it so your child eats better, is calmer at the table, and develops a positive relationship with food. You’ll even learn how to introduce new foods without turning your child off.
  • A handle on all those special diets: Elimination, Feingold, gluten-free, and more. You’ll get the lowdown on these and determine whether these are good options for your child.

Here are the lessons you can expect in Module Two:

Lesson 1: The Ups and Downs of Eating
Lesson 2: What is Food Parenting?
Lesson 3: Feeding for Success
Lesson 4: Special Diets 

Module Three: Common Challenges with ADHD Nutrition

Designed to help you troubleshoot the most common food, feeding and nutritional problems, you’ll tackle challenges you can solve with food, those you can solve through strategic feeding, and the challenges you can solve with a combination of both food and feeding. 

  • You’ll learn how to solve weight problems and nutrient deficiencies using a food-based solution, and know whether supplements are needed (and which ones are best).
  • Navigate the “no appetite” problem with effective feeding schedules, and troubleshoot the child who “eats all the time but doesn’t gain weight” with creative solutions that work.
  • Solve bad eating habits such as constant eating or overeating unhealthy foods with easy-to-adapt boundaries your child will understand.
  • You’ll learn how to turn the constant snacker and the junk food junkie into healthier eaters, while setting up a strategy to get the pickiest kids eating new foods and the supplement-dependent child transitioned over to real food. 

Module Three breaks down into the following lessons:  

Lesson 1: Challenges You Can Solve with Food
Lesson 2: Challenges You Can Solve with Feeding
Lesson 3: Challenges You Can Solve with Food & Feeding

Healthy Gut Check
