Halloween tip for ADHD children

Children love to go treat or treating with their friends. It’s a great social experience and a popular tradition.




However, most of the commercial candy available these days contains ingredients such as artificial food coloring, wheat, sugar, dairy and, sometimes, aspartame. These ingredients may trigger negative reactions in some children such as hyperactivity and compromises their immune system.

I knew there was no way I could discourage my twins from trick-or-treating when they were seven years old, even though they needed to avoid several of these ingredients.
If your child should avoid any of the traditional ingredients in candy, you may want to try this suggestion to support your child’s health and give them a fun experience with their friends!

My solution — I used the oldest trick in the world: bribery.  At the end of the evening, I bought the candy from them!  My sons had a great time with their friends, and they were happy enough about our arrangement. With their money, they bought a new toy!
