My son is 8 years old and he has ADHD. I have him on his medicine but I am wanting to know what he can have to drink besides water? And if Diet & Caffeine Sodas are good for him. I don't like giving him just water all the time. It breaks my heart to see him so unhappy cause he have to dink water, I am looking around for other things for him to drink so he would stop being so sad about it.

No soda unless sweetened with pure cane sugar only and made with pure ingredients. No artificial anything. They are out there. We used to give my son pure fruit juice cut with soda water. Hope this helps.

My son now (34) has ADHD. The doctor sugguested the Fiengold diet. What a wonderful thing.

My son was able to drink natural fruit juices, soda water (no artificial sweeteners--pure cane sugar only), hot chocolate made with pure coca, milk, iced teas (brewed at home), and all sorts of herbal teas, both iced and hot. None of these should affect his ADHD adversely.

Also, please look into the diet--it is easily googled. (Check with your PCP, though.) My son was able to come off his meds in the fourth grade because of it. There is nothing in it that will hurt your son. I did find that I had to make many more things at home--it is a lifestyle committment for the whole family.

Best of luck and be blessed.
