      I totally agree with this, but I didn’t know this myself until mine

      were just to old for it to work with. But if you start off when they

      are babies with this type of diet I think it would be great for any

      kid not just those that are adhd. in fact those parents that already

      eat like this before having kids may have “normal” kids were as if

      they ate all the junk they would of been adhd.
