A Healthy Start

In my research, I read that a high protein, low carb diet, no food dyes, and with thirty minutes or more of cardio exercise a day will help with ADD. With the start of school, I have done this now for two days. Homework hasn't started yet - so the jury is still "out" on how it will work. I have been really amazed at how compliant Natalie has been. Day one - her siblings had cinnamon cake, she had eggs and cantaloupe. Day two - siblings had Eggo waffles - she had eggs and a smoothie. For lunch she has had fresh fruit and a protein bar. (OK - I also packed a couple of cookies) She has gotten up early to go bike riding both days. I'll keep you posted on how well it works :)
