  • Just use pure foods and use your own home cooked meals, no additives, flavors and colors. Organic foods are always better and when you don’t have money for that you could just buy organic for the dirty dozen. Stay away from processed foods.
    A helpful guide is the “additive Alert” https://www.booktopia.com.au/additive-alert-2-e-reissue-julie-eady/prod9781925403534.html?source=pla&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzejO4cOR2AIVViUrCh3CkgCKEAYYAiABEgKw2fD_BwE

  • I believe no preservatives and as organic as possible.
    Don’t have to be too strict but, if you stick with 90%, i think that’s a good percentage!

  • There are heaps out there but watch out for ones that are not balanced or that are unlivable for the rest of the family. My friend sought advice from a Dietitian for her son.

  • Avoiding red, yellow and orange food colouring help my daugther’s behavoir when she was little. Even small amounts would set her off for a couple of days.

  • Keep the foods real. Make meals from raw ingredients and stay away from packaged foods.

  • I hope you found a diet that worked

  • Stay away from food additives

  • Stay away from food colouring . My daughter goes crazy on it

  • Hope you were able to solve the problem

  • DId you find one? but rule of thumb cut out all processed foods.

  • Yes, I heard the same thing as rocky1991, as a kid I had a badly behaved friend who was put on a celiac diet I think it was.

  • I have a friend who took her daughter to a naturopath, who tested and pinpointed foods that affected her daughters behaviour.

  • I’ve heard that white processed foods, ie white bread can be bad for behaviour issues :)

  • As far as I know it’s all food colourings u should stay away from

  • I do believe that some are food related, especially behaviour
