Breakfast is especially important for children with attention challenges.

Without it your child’s brain will produce stress hormones such as Adrenalin & cortisol in an attempt to concentrate. Pervasive levels of these stress hormones weaken the immune system and can lead to depression & anxiety.

Do your best to try to train your child to eat breakfast, trying to include protein – eggs, cheese, tuna, beans and oats – remember that the energy from carbohydrate-based cereals will quickly be burned off by hyperactive children.
