Kids With ADHD React To Certain Food Additives & Preservatives

A study reported in The Lancet states that the symptoms of kids with ADHD worsened when they consumed foods having certain food colorings and preservatives in them.

Some of the culprits included the preservative sodium benzoate, tartrazine, quinoline yellow, and allura red AC.

All these are used in carbonated drinks, fruit juices, jams, pickles, candy, soft drinks, cereals, pastries, soups, gums and other processed foods.

So…if you haven’t been doing it, it’s time to read food labels and eliminate these substances for the health of your kids.
