My son is 2 & a half & I'm pretty sure he has ADHD but he can't be diagnosed till he is 5-6 years old so I'm trying to change his diet to see if it helps what would people recommend to start with 1st because he is a very fussy eater he only eats the same foods everyday

There is an excellent book called The RPAH elimination diet. It includes recipes including desserts and sweets. Fed Up with Food is also a very informative book by Sue Dengate. She also has a website.

I would be just feeding him the vege's that he does like over junk food, that way you know he is eating the best you can give him. See if you can also hide Chia seeds (they are tasteless) on the fruit he does eat. Make a fruit salad and sprinkle them on top for added fiber.
Make sure you see a dietician to find out ways to hide goodness in what he does eat.

I have recently changed to a different doctor so I will be having a chat about this & he does eat junk food because he wont eat a home made meal because he doesn't like a lot of things due to the look,feel,texture&taste of the foods but he does eat a limited amount of fruit & veg because he only likes carrots,peas,bananas & apples so I am really stuck on what to feed him

It depends on if the only foods he eats is processed crap or natural foods. The more processed a food is the less benefit it has and also the link to behaviour problems.
It would help to know what type of food you are feeding him now to be able to tell you what to eliminate, since he eats the same every day.

Well try going to multiple doctors because different doctors say different things.

I have tired but the doctor just said as long as he's eating its fine but I don't agree it can't be very good or healthy for him
