  • Eat a high protein diet,including beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts. Add protein foods in the morning and for after-school snacks, to improve concentration and possibly increase the time ADHA medications work.
  • Eat fewer simple carbohydrates,such as candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins.
  • Eat more complex carbohydrates,such as vegetables and some fruits (including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi). Eating complex carbs at night may aid sleep.
  • Eat more omega-3 fatty acids,such as those found in tuna, salmon, other cold-water white fish, walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil. Omega-3 fatty acids are also available in supplement form.
