Hi there

my darling 7 year old daughter has been on vvyanse for her ADHD which has been awesome but she is seriously losing weight. My 4 year old son is 41 lbs and she is 44. I have tried focalin and was not at all impressed. I love vvyanse but i need some ideas from you fabulous mom's about how to get her to gain weight

Thanks

First of all...are you sure they have ADHD?
I agree with Tina ...lots of pastas with veggies, breads, cheese products...wish you all well!

The foods I can think of tho help I don't know that they are good for children with ADHD but would help with weight. Like pasta potato and bread in moderation with other healthy foods don't resort to fatty foods. Spaghetti bolognaise kids seem to like and you can add veggies into it. Also go to the doctor ask for suggestions. Goodluck I hope this helps.
