The Driving Question
Is there a better, healthier way to help treat the symptoms of A.D.H.D?
A possible answer to this question is the type of food those with A.D.H.D. consume. What is in the food may determine if it will have a positive or negative effect on those with this disorder.
Foods Those with A.D.H.D Should Avoid
- Frozen food
- Ice cream & Yogurt
- Fruit juice
- Fast food
- Red meat
- Red food dye
- Artificial Sweetners
Hypotheses and Prediction
Hypotheses -If people with A.D.H.D stopped eating gluten, then the effects of A.D.H.D will not be as predominant.
With many problem that some people have, they first thing they come to is that gluten may be the source of the problem. So, we think that if we reduce the amount of gluten one with A.D.H.D consumes may affect their behavior.
Prediction- If we take two teenagers off of gluten for a certain period of time then we would see that their behavior would become "better".
