Abstract: Insufficient evidence exists to suggest that dietary interventions improve the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children (strength of recommendation: B, extrapolation from randomized controlled trials [RCTs]). Interventions that have been investigated include removal of sugar and artificial food colorings from the diet and supplementation with fatty acids.
