Nowadays there are so many cases that babies were born hyperactive. I have heard that during pregnancy we better not consume lot of soda to prevent that. Do you know any other food to avoid to prevent that happen?

Hello viollet_ry! Welcome to mylot!:-) I am not a physician or medical specialist but my partner is, I have read and heard that pregnant mothers consuming lots of fish have babies which are very active. I don't know if it makes them hyperactive or not. Fish do have very positive effect on the brain development of babies. I have had experience with my nephew and my own son. In both cases their mothers ate a good amount of fish during pregnancy and they are really very active kids. I won't say them hyper active because they don't look like so. They are just active more than average babies.

Consuming fishes or seafood is really good for the baby during pregnancy. They will be smarter and active like you said. But in this case I have seen few of hyperactive kids myself. Their parents' told me so and I have seen they were just not the same like others. But after they followed some therapy, they get better.

I see what you are saying, viollet_ry! It is possible that over eating such things would have caused those children being hyperactive but I have yet to see one such example. In case of my nephew and my son, it's true that they are very, very active kids but I wouldn't say it hyper activity. I am still learning...:-) Thanks for the best response:-)

I don't think what you eat has anything to do with hyperactivity. I think it has more to do with the home life of the child and personality. My son has been active since he was born. I would never say he has adhd. It is just his personality to go and go and go. I think the best thing to do is to figure out what things the child likes. Children need some structure and it takes more brain power to do something structured. I did sip cola all day long with my daughter because it was the only thing I could keep down. She is much mroe laid back then my son.

Yes I can see you have to take more attention to take care an so active child. I have an active baby myself. I am not sure myself that are foods really have to do with hyperactivity but I have met some kids like that. I just hope to learn more bout it.
