Does anyone have a list of processed foods that have red food dye?

Re: Diet changes to treat possible adhd?

agree with everything above! My mom changed my brother's diet and he was like a new kid. No artificial anything, gluten free as much as you can

Yep-Pretty much all everything processed. It shows up in weird places.

We eliminated all red dye, but there are red foods, like tomato based and red fruit based foods that have natural color that are fine. Ketchup is a natural red from the tomatoes so that doesn't need to be eliminated. It made a big difference with my now 16 year old. It's tough, because there are so many things that you wouldn't htink have red dye in them. At 12, he would read the labels of everything to look for the dye

You my laugh but... a glass of something with caffeine in the am will help level an over stimulated child. This is often recommended for parents debating medication as the meds act the same way as the caffeine. I know this is done with school age children but I have No experience with younger.

we give ds (9) dilluted coffee if he is having a hard time. We have recently cut back on sugars, red and blue dye, gluten, processed foods. He is like a different child if we relax on his diet. It has even helped curbed some of his asd tendencies

Re: Diet changes to treat possible adhd?

We are going to try a 2 week elimination diet with both of the boys. Kearnan is almost 11 and high functioning PDD NOS, Tharen is 6 and as yet undiagnosed but suspected ODD/ADHD. We are going to try ultra strict, nothing but fruit, veggies and protein (no eggs, soy, dairy or gluten) and see how it goes. Does anyone know if tea and cocoa are allowed on the restricted diets? I am looking at some of the gluten free treats and want to be able to offer the boys some things they enjoy so they don't feel like the world is coming to an end. Chocolate almond milk, herbal teas and some of the gluten free treats using cocoa powder would really help ease this along.

Anyone who is interested should check out the GAPS diet. It's helped countless people overcome countless health issues (diabetes, ADHD, bi-polar, celiac, leaky gut, etc etc etc). My family is on the diet right now to heal my DS's light eczema, my DH's very weak immune system (among other things), & my digestive issues. It's been going well so far, we have definitely noticed a difference & it's only been one month.
