Breakfast Ideas For ADHD

As previously discussed, a balanced diet is good for us all, but especially important for those with ADHD. Making sure that the brain gets the key vitamins and nutrients it needs to function at its prime, comes from diet. Here are some breakfast ideas for ADHD sufferers, that focus on starting the day with key nutrients.

 

According to ADDitudemag.com,

“Children need more calories and protein per pound of body weight than adults do, to ensure normal growth and development and to maintain good health. The average daily amounts of calories and protein recommended by government health experts for normal-weight children and adolescents are as follows:”

 

  • Ages 1-3: 1300 calories, 16 grams protein
  • Ages 4-6: 1800 calories, 24 grams protein
  • Ages 7-14: 2000 calories, 28 – 45 grams protein

 

With these protein numbers in mind, here are a few brain boosting breakfast ideas to try:

 

Whole grain waffles topped with natural peanut butter and apples, with a glass of milk

 

Oatmeal with honey and fresh fruit, topped with nuts, add a side of milk

 

Organic eggs, scrambled with whole wheat toast and a glass of orange juice

 

Yogurt, with granola, topped with nuts and a glass of milk

 

Ham and cheese breakfast sandwich on a whole wheat english muffin, side of orange juice

 

Make a homemade power granola with flax seed, (kids can help); serve on yogurt or with milk

 

Organic, nitrate free sausage, with scrambled eggs, and cheese, all wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla

 

Fruit smoothie with bananas, favorite berries, yogurt and a splash of 100% fruit juice (could add flax seed or protein powder)

 

Grilled almond butter and banana sandwich with a glass of milk

 

 

Keep a balanced diet in mind at each meal. Feed the brain to keep it working at its prime!
