Why Children with ADHD Should Stop Drinking Soda and Sweetened Drinks Now

Children with ADHD Should Stop Drinking Soda and Sweetened Drinks Right Now

Walk into just about any fast food restaurant in America, and what are you going to see? 

At most of them, you’ll see a wide array of unhealthy foods. At some, you’ll see healthier options. Hopefully, you’ll see families enjoying one another’s company. You might see a child on the verge of a meltdown from sitting still for so long. You might see people sitting on their phones while they wait for a table. 

There’s one other thing you’ll see, though, and that’s what I want to address today: SODA (or, depending on where you live, you might call it POP or Soft Drink)!  

Soda has become a staple in the American diet, and we are ALL paying the price for this. Our compromised kids, though, might be paying the biggest price. 

There was a study done in 2015 that showed hyperactivity increased by 14% with every sugar sweetened drink that kids consumed. This same study also showed that kids were more aggressive when they drank soda. 

So think about it, we’ve got kids who are already struggling with attention, hyperactivity, and aggression, and we are giving them a product that makes all of these symptoms more pronounced! It doesn’t make any sense, and yet so many of us do it! 

I wanted to give you a simple challenge today: GET SODA OFF THE MENU! 

Your kids don’t need soda. They need water! 

My challenge to you today is to stop buying soda. If it’s not in your pantry or fridge, they won’t drink it. 

You control the food (and in this case, drinks) that are in your home. You don’t buy it; they don’t drink it. It’s really as simple as that. 

So who wants to join me in this challenge?
