Nutritional status of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a pilot study.
Int J Pediatr 2010; 2010:767318IJ

Abstract

Objectives.

This is a pilot study of the dietary intake and nutrient status of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Method.

Nutritional assessment of 43 children aged 6-12 with ADHD was performed using a 3-day food record, 24-hour recall, and serum assessors.

Results.

Macronutrient intake and consumption of Low-Nutrient Foods were comparable to population norms; however, 66% were found to be deficient in zinc and 23% in copper.

Conclusions.

This pilot study reports the food intake and nutrient status of children with ADHD and shows a predisposition for low zinc and copper status in ADHD.
