Healthy eating poses many challenges for people with ADHD. This is especially true during the pandemic, when so many are working or learning from home with easy access to the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator.
Research shows that healthy eating makes for a healthier ADHD brain. Since people with ADHD carry a higher risk for obesity, it is important for children and adults to incorporate mindful eating practices and solid nutrition into their everyday lives. A key component of managing ADHD symptoms is developing a positive relationship with food.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Why people with ADHD struggle to build and maintain healthy eating habits
- How ADHD is a risk factor for obesity
- The upsides and downsides of caffeine
- Practical strategies for supermarket shopping, organizing food in the kitchen, and eating mindfully
- The importance of nutrition and nutrient-dense foods for a healthier brain
- Managing cravings, especially at night
- ADHD-friendly cooking tips and ideas
