Parents of children with ADHD are likely to observe poor focus, mental fatigue, mood swings, and sleep issues. For adults in relationships with ADHD loved ones, the same symptoms exist. Speaker Dorothy Mullen will be sharing the foundational message of the Suppers Program: The brain is typically the first organ to respond to poor nutrition. How a person feels, thinks, and attends is data which can be used to sort out which foods the child or adult needs for focus and for life. Join Dorothy Mullen and learn about nutritional harm reduction and how to get the family on board for eating foods that improve mood, behavior, and attention.
