Dear Orsila,

There are a number of diets out there; possibly the most well known are the Feingold diet and the Hafer diet. The problem with any of these diets is they are a one size fits all approach, and if your son has any specific dietry requirements they may be missed.

I suggest contacting adhasa at (011) 888 7655 or adhasa@telkomsa.net and ask for a dietician in your area who specialises in ADHD. It may still be worthwhile researching the two above mentioned diets to get some idea of what the diets are based on. Ensuring your son gets plenty of exercise will also help.

Good luck,
Delia
