Symptoms of Low Blood Sugar Mimics ADHD

Eating too much sugar and not enough protein at breakfast causes blood sugar levels to raise quickly resulting in a sudden burst of energy followed shortly afterwards by an energy slump. By mid-morning, blood sugar levels are low, resulting in signs and symptoms that mimic ADHD.

Symptoms of Low Blood Sugar and ADHD include:

  • Irritable, grumpy or angry
  • Aggression
  • Sad moods and crying
  • Disruptive behaviour
  • Poor focus and concentration
  • Inability to sit still
  • Inconsistent learning
  • Poor memory retention
  • General fatigue
  • Sleepy and tired

The average kid’s breakfast can contain up to 16 teaspoons of sugar!

Sugar is hidden in ‘healthy’ food and we are unaware how much sugar kids are consuming at breakfast.

  • For example one glass of fruit juice could contain as much as 8 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Commercial breakfast cereals can include an addition 6 to 8 teaspoons of sugar and that doesn’t include additional sugar or honey added on top.
  • Toast doesn’t fill tummies, or feed the brain and they will soon be hungry, looking for more sugary snacks.

The first meal of the day is the most important meal of the day.

  • When your child wakes in the morning, their blood sugar levels will be low because they haven’t eaten for 10 hours or longer.
  • Eating a well-balanced breakfast that includes protein will help to support energy levels and fuel the brain for the day ahead.
  • It’s important to aim to serve a breakfast that is low in sugar. Most popular commercial breakfast cereals and fruit juice is loaded with sugar.
  • Toast doesn’t fill tummies for long, and they will soon be hungry, looking for more sugary snacks.
  • If your child skips breakfast, this can harm their growth and development.
