Can a dietitian and nutritionist help ADHD?

Yes, a registered dietitian and nutritionist can help ADHD by carefully analyzing your diet, providing education on the connection of diet and ADHD, as well as implementing various nutritional interventions.


How an ADHD Nutritionist and Dietitian Can Help:

  • Thoroughly assess your current diet with ADHD in mind as well as to ensure it is nutritionally balanced.
  • Discuss the role food plays in ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).
  • Outline the difference between high-quality foods and those of lower quality, stressing the importance of consuming the former, while limiting the latter.
  • Outline the importance of consuming high quality protein on a regular basis, perhaps to boost energy, keep you full for longer and perhaps help to ease ADHD symptoms.
  • Ensure that the ADHD diet consists of complex carbohydrates (e.g., fruits and vegetables).
  • List foods you should avoid: simple carbohydrates.
  • Discuss the side effects of sugar, caffeine, artificial additives, allergens consumption, if applicable.
  • Learn how to regulate blood sugar levels to prevent common mental health concerns, such as irritability, brain fog, “hanger”, anxiety and excessive worrying.
  • Discuss supplementation of vitamins and minerals, if desired and necessary.
  • Assist with elimination diets to help improve the symptoms of ADHD, if applicable.
  • Promote the health of your digestive system (also referred to as the “second brain”) through optimal fibre intake and essential nutrients such as B vitamins, probiotics, fluids, and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Increase your intake of plant compounds, such as polyphenols and antioxidants, as needed to enhance brain function.
  • Discuss with a dietitian and nutritionist for ADHD how diet and lifestyle choices affect how and what we feel.
  • Address lifestyle behaviours that can disrupt focus.
  • Have a personalized ADHD nutrition meal plan created.
  • Work with an eating disorder dietitian and nutritionist to help manage disordered eating patterns, if needed.
  • Conduct sessions with a gut health dietitian and learn about the connection between the gut and the brain (and microbiota).
  • Address other co-existing conditions.
